This demo project contains a parse-server backend to migrate from a hosted server on Moralis to a self-hosted server, using parse-server.

Getting started locally

  1. Copy/download this project
  2. Make sure to have yarn or npm insalled
  3. Setup mongo-db and redis locally (see below)
  4. Install all dependencies via yarn install or npm install
  5. Copy .env.example to .env and fill in the values

Run your dapp

  • Run yarn dev to run the server locally

Now your app is running locally on localhost:1337/server (or any other port/endpoint you set in .env)

Note: by default the cloud-code is referenced in build/cloud, so make sure to run yarn build before running the server. Or change the location of the cloud code.

Run mongo-db

In order to run a server instance of parse-server, you will need to setup a mongo-db instance. For more information you can see https://www.mongodb.com/docs/manual/installation/

For local development, you can use the mongo-db-runner (see https://github.com/mongodb-js/runner). This should only be used for local development. To start this run:

yarn dev:db-start

And to stop it, run

yarn dev:db-stop

Make sure to set the DATABASE_URI in your .env file

Run redis

For rate-limiting, we are using a redis instance. In order for this to work, you will need to setup redis instance. For more information you can see https://redis.io/docs/getting-started/

For local development you will need to install redis on your local machine, and start the service. Make sure to set the REDIS_CONNECTION_STRING in your .env file
