Short Description
Parse Platform development environment
Full Description



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

  • Alpine Edge base image
  • NodeJS built from source
  • Up to date nodejs (7.7.3)
  • Up to date npm (4.1.2)
  • Up to date parse server (2.3.7)
  • Up to date parse dashboard (1.0.25)
  • Dashboard included (server + dashboard in same image & same port!)
  • 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:1337


With builtin MongoDB:

docker run -d -t -i -p 1337:1337 --name parse spezzino/parse-platform

With custom (existing MongoDB):

docker run -d -t -i -p 1337:1337 -e MONGO_URL='MY_MONGO_URL' --name parse spezzino/parse-platform

When all is done, you should have your dashboard at http://localhost:1337/dashboard and your parse API at http://localhost:1337/dashboard
