Parse 1.17.0-alpha.6

Parse SDK for iOS/OS X/watchOS/tvOS


A library that gives you access to the powerful Parse cloud platform from your iOS or OS X app. For more information about Parse and its features, see the blog and public documentation.

Getting Started

To use parse, head on over to the releases page, and download the latest build. And you're off!. Take a look at the public documentation & API and start building.

Notice the API docs aren't totally up to date when it comes to latest Swift signature of the methods and more importantly regarding Push Notifications which are no longer supported by Parse server, keep an eye on its repo

Other Installation Options

  • CocoaPods

    Add the following line to your Podfile:

    pod 'Parse'

    Run pod install, and you should now have the latest parse release.

  • Carthage

    Add the following line to your Cartfile:

    github "parse-community/Parse-SDK-iOS-OSX"

    Run carthage update, and you should now have the latest version of Parse SDK in your Carthage folder.

  • Compiling for yourself

    If you want to manually compile the SDK, clone it locally, and run the following commands in the root directory of the repository:

     # To pull in extra dependencies (Bolts and OCMock)
     git submodule update --init --recursive
     # To install all the gems
     bundle install
     # Build & Package the Frameworks
     rake package:frameworks

    Compiled frameworks will be in 2 archives: and inside the build/release folder, and you can link them as you'd please.

  • Using Parse as a sub-project

    You can also include parse as a subproject inside of your application if you'd prefer, although we do not recommend this, as it will increase your indexing time significantly. To do so, just drag and drop the Parse.xcodeproj file into your workspace. Note that unit tests will be unavailable if you use Parse like this, as OCMock will be unable to be found.

How Do I Contribute?

We want to make contributing to this project as easy and transparent as possible. Please refer to the Contribution Guidelines.


We use the following libraries as dependencies inside of Parse:

  • Bolts, for task management.
  • OCMock, for unit testing.
