Short Description
Complete Parse suite with Dashboard, Server and optional MongoDB instance.
Full Description


This is a fork of, all the original features are included, but additional features are:

  • Up to date parse server (at this time of writing 2.2.17)
  • Dashboard included (server + dashboard in same image)
  • Optional MongoDB support (ignore this if you want to run the builtin version)

The main advantages over the original version is ease-of-use, higher out-of-the-box factor and saves space and memory if you already run a MongoDB instance (since you can reuse that one)


Environment variables and default values for parse-server;

  • APP_ID myAppId
  • MASTER_KEY mySecretMasterKey
  • FILE_KEY optionalFileKey
  • USER_NAME user
  • PASSWORD pass
  • SERVER_URL http://localhost:8080


With builtin MongoDB:

docker run -d -t -i -p 1500:8080 -p 1501:4040 --name parse peterwilli/parse-platform

With custom (existing MongoDB):

docker run -d -t -i -p 1500:8080 -p 1501:4040 -e MONGO_URL='MY_MONGO_URL' --name parse peterwilli/parse-platform

With a Docker linked MongoDB instance (this is my setup)

  • Fire up a docker mongodb instance, like this one: docker run --name db -d mongo if you haven't done already.
  • run the parse instance like so: docker run -d -t -i -e MONGO_URL='mongodb://db:27017/parse' -p 1500:8080 -p 1501:4040 --link db:db --name parse parse

When all is done, you should have your dashboard at http://localhost:1501 and your parse API at http://localhost:1500
