Short Description
Docker image with Parse Server
Full Description

What is Parse Server?

The open source Parse Server makes it possible to serve the Parse API from any infrastructure that can host Node.js applications. Parse Server provides a way for you to keep your application running without major changes in the client-side code, once you have your data in your own database. Our client SDKs now support changing the API server location to direct them to your own. This also lets you use the Parse client SDKs with entirely new applications that have no dependency on the Parse hosted services.

How to Use This Image

Parse Server depends on MongoDB, so first you need to launch a mongo instance:

$ docker run --name some-mongo -d mongo:3.0 --setParameter failIndexKeyTooLong=false

Then you can launch the Parse Server container:

$ docker run --link some-mongo:mongo -e PARSE_SERVER_APPLICATION_ID=myAppId -e PARSE_SERVER_MASTER_KEY=mySecretMasterKey -p 1337:1337 -d raulr/parse-server

Cloud Code

You can mount a directory containing Cloud Code into /cloud to use it on your app:

$ docker run --link some-mongo:mongo -v <cloud code dir>:/cloud -e PARSE_SERVER_APPLICATION_ID=myAppId -e PARSE_SERVER_MASTER_KEY=mySecretMasterKey -p 1337:1337 -d raulr/parse-server

Alternatively, you can create an image with your Cloud Code using a custom Dockerfile:

FROM raulr/parse-server
COPY ./cloud-code-dir /cloud

... via docker-compose

Example docker-compose.yml:

  image: raulr/parse-server
    - "1337:1337"
      PARSE_SERVER_MASTER_KEY: mySecretMasterKey
    - mongo
  image: mongo:3.0
  command: "--setParameter failIndexKeyTooLong=false"

Run docker-compose up, wait for it to initialize completely, and visit http://localhost:1337/parse to test if it is running.
