Last week Parse (a Facebook company) announced they would be shutting down service January 2017. This was pretty lousy news since I have come to really like the service. It was packed with all kinds of cool features. Parse also provided the backend for the Finesse SMS Gadget I made and was recently posted on Cisco’s developer site.
The updated gadget was posted to github. If you run into any issues, let me know.
I was glad to get everything working properly with Firebase. Now I need to decide if I want to use Firebase for the iOS app I am working on or run my own Parse server using the open source code Parse released. I am leaning toward the latter.
