parse_facade Build Status

parse_facade interfaces with Parse's javascript SDK for working with parse-server

Usage

This package expects Parse's javascript SDK to be available in the browser.

Sample usage:

main() async {
  // Initialize your parse app
  Parse.initialize('applicationId', 'javascriptKey');
  // set the URL of parse-server
  Parse.serverURL = 'http://localhost:1337/parse';

  // Object declaration
  var p1 = new ParseObject('Person');
  p1.set('address', 'some place');
  await p1.save();
  // you can also save an object with additional attributes
  await p1.save(attributes: {'someNum': 100});

  // alternative object declaration
  var p2 = new ParseObject('Person', {'address': 'some place'});
  await p2.save();

  // Signing up a user using the static method
  await ParseUser.signUpUser('username', 'password');
  // Signing up a user with attributes using the static method
  await ParseUser.signUpUser('username', 'password', {'address': 'some place'});

  // Signup a user from a User instance
  var u1 = new ParseUser()
    ..username = 'user1'
    ..password = 'password1';
  await u1.signUp();
}

Features and bugs

This package is an attempt to allow the use of Parse's javascript SDK from dart in the browser.

It tries to maintain the same API (to minimize the learning curve) while allowing

That said, there will be some cases where the API is a bit different. This will mostly be done to remove ambiguity in method signatures. For example, the JS SDK can be used with callbacks or with promises (in most cases). However, this package uses only Futures and does away with callbacks altogether.

Current state

This package currently doesn't expose all the functionality that the JS SDK does. However, the intention is to gradually make it feature compatible with the JS SDK.
