Step 5. Install Parse Server Codes


To simplify the process, we will use Dropbox service to upload codes in this example. Otherwise you'll need to use Heroku Git or GitHub which are a little more difficult for beginner coders.

Go to deploy tab, choose Dropbox service, and click <Connect to Dropbox> button.

Heroku needs your authentication to communicate with your dropbox account. Fill in your Dropbox account info and click Login.

When it's done, Heroku will create corresponding app folder in Dropbox/Apps folder. We need to put all Parse codes in it.

Now go to this link and download Rexrainbow version Parse server codes.

Extract all files to the Dropbox folder.

When your files finish uploading, you'll see the Dropbox icon turned to green in Windows status bar.

Type some comments and push <Deploy>. Heroku will loads your codes from Dropbox and build it.

When everything is completed, click <View> to test your parse server.

If everything is OK, you'll see <I dream of being a web site>.

Add a /parse string behind the address, it is your Parse Service URL. Connect to this URL and you'll see an error message like below.

Step 6. Use Your Parse Server in C2


Open your C2 project, add Rexrainbow's <Parse initialize> plugin in layout.

Open your C2 project, add Rexrainbow's <Parse initialize> plugin in layout. In its object propertie list, fill in your <APP_ID>, <JAVASCRIPT_KEY> (those you set in step4 ), and your parse service URL (which you got in step5). And now you can enjoy the marvelous Rexrainbow Parse series plugins!
