Migrate easily from Parse to Flybase

Parse.com is going away, what do you do now?

The announcement of Parse.com's impending shutdown was a shock to all of us. But you still need a way to store your data easily and sync with devices right?

Let Flybase help you with that. Our experts are standing by to help move your data from your parse account to your Flybase account, and to help set up your cloud code with parse server.

How to export from Parse?

1. First, go to your Parse.com dashboard

2. Click on « App Settings ».

3. Then select « General »

4. Scroll down and click on « Export data » button.

5. If everything goes well, you will receive an email containing a .zip with all your data in a set of JSON files.

How to import to Flybase?

The exported JSON can be imported using our Parse to Flybase tool, which parses all your JSON files and imports it into your Flybase app, this is a fork of our usual Flybase import tool, as we wanted to make sure it fully supported Parse's exports for you.

$ npm install parse2flybase

$ parse2flybase --flybase_key API-KEY --flybase-app Test --flybase_collection Stuff --json test.json

All data at Test/Stuff will be overwritten.
Press <enter> to proceed, Ctrl-C to abort.
