Tutorial: Install your private Parse Sever on Heroku

  • Many thanks for the support from rexrainbow & gonzdevour . Your efforts on Parse makes C2 a powerful tool!

  • Hi jomo

    Can you explain to me what is Parse Server and what's its purpose?

  • Hi jomo

    Can you explain to me what is Parse Server and what's its purpose?

    Briefly speaking, it is a backend database. Here is the official site of Parse.

    For example, if you want to make a Login system or Leaderboard system, then you will need a backend database to store all your user info. You can get it done very quickly by using rexrainbow 's <Parse series plugins>. Otherwise you will need to write PHP/MySQL backend system by yourself.

    Here are two more detailed tutorials for making Login/Leaderboard by rexrainbow Parse series plugins:

    Is it something like google play/game center plugin or I need to use parse with these others plugins? Can i use it in a multiplayer game?

    It's more fundamental than Google center, so you can do more customized things with parse plugins.

    Yes, you can use it in your multiplayer game. But please be aware that parse is an client/server internet service while C2 multiplayer plugin is p2p network.

  • Hi jomo

    Sorry to reopen this thread but as the subject is the same ...

    I followed your tutorial about the heroku and now I'm trying to create a login system using your other tutorial but something is wrong because I cannot login: always I got a "login failed" message. I also didn't find the "core" tab/option to check the data. I've installed the rex parse plugin and rex authentication plugin and use the same application_id and javascript_key for both. Just to confirm: using your tutorial as example, the URL that you will use in the URL field from the rex parse initialize plugin is , right?

  • Hey jomo

    Please, I really need some help here.

    Hi ~ I was busy in these days, sorry for the late reply. I've deleted the server so it won't response. Did you add a <Parse Initialize> plugin? 2 Months ago Rexrainbow changed the architecture of Parse series plugin. If you don't have this plugin, please update whole Rexrainbow plugins through RexRepo tool.

    Hi jomo

    No problem. Thanks to come back.

    I've added the Rex Parse Initialize plugin and I filled all the fields (ID, Key, URL) but it's not working.

  • Braus,

    I'm having this exact problem.

    Did you succeed in resolving it ? If so could you post a how-to please.

    I do have the Rex Parse Initialize updated to the latest, installed and filled with ID, Key and URL but I only get "Login failed" message.

    On Heroku, my https://[app name].herokuapp.com/ returns:

    "Make sure to star the parse-server repo on GitHub!"

    which leads me to believe it's setup properly.

    https://[app name].herokuapp.com/parse returns:

    {"error":"unauthorized"}

    which the tutorial indicates is the expected response.

    All the events in my .capx are setup as indicated in the tutorial.

    Any clue on what I might be missing ?

    I have this exact same problem... did you manage to solve it?

    Thanks!

  • I believe this is related to CORS and Heroku.

    No idea how to fix this.
