Parse Platform & Astian Ecosystem

The Astian Ecosystem is growing rapidly, with a user base that already exceeds 400K users using our products and services, (Midori Browser, Astian Cloud, K-LamarVPN, among others) something that requires us to have better and greater control of how users interact with our applications, and the best candidate for this was Parse Platform, but why? well, we will tell you a little.

What is Parse Platform?

Parse Platform is an open source BaaS platform, Environment as a service, that provides SDKs for building mobile, web and desktop environments. With Parse, developers can add scalable environments in minutes and launch a fully featured mobile or web app in record time without even worrying about server administration. Parse offers push notifications, social media integration, data storage, and the ability to add rich custom logic to your application environment with cloud code. As you can see, Parse Platform is the best alternative to existing and proprietary ones such as Google’s Firebase, among others, this will allow us to create a secure and private environment for user information and since it is stored in our data centers the information will not be shared by third parties.

At a technical level and regardless of the application store, operating system and / or platform where our applications run, the use of Parse Platform in Astian products and services will allow tasks and functions such as:

  • Unified login.
  • Information synchronization.
  • Error report or crash report.
  • File management.
  • IoT and AI functions.
  • Login with social networks.
  • Real-time notifications.
  • Rest-API.
  • End-to-end encryption.
  • Among other functions.

In some stores like F-Droid, Aurora Store, Play Store and / or in the source code you will see the Parse dependencies as well as their respective configuration.
