SashiDo - The Real Parse Alternative

I remember as it was yesterday: January 2016 when Parse announced their shutdown. I saw the confusion that mobile developers felt, they had to deal with servers, infrastructures, databases, backups, app scaling etc, all necessary things that they need, but take a lot of time, effort and knowledge to implement.

I was thinking … these guys create amazing apps with inspiring UX design, why bother them with troubleshooting production systems? Set their minds free, give them time, stable platform and tools to unleash their powers. My first company CloudStrap is a Cloud hosting platform and me and my team have years of experience with Cloud services and infrastructures, we burn for what we do, so we decided: we have to build incredible product for them!

It was months of hard planning, development, debugging, hundreds of sleepless nights and countless cups of coffee. It was difficult, but we wanted to provide the best option for the customers to receive again the real Parse experience.

It’s been 3 months since we launched, SashiDo is ready for production and we work with more and more enthusiasm to make SashiDo into


Now, if you are still wondering where to migrate before Parse shuts down or if you are looking for a real Parse feeling: join SashiDo for a free trial!

We’re the only service providing a fully automated migration from Parse: it takes few clicks. We also have Parse Files Migration tool so nothing will get lost from your app. If you already have moved your application from Parse hosted service: don’t worry, SashiDo engineers would love to help you migrate from any Parse Server provider, we already gathered a lot of experience :)

  • WebHooks: You want to code on a language other than JavaScript and integrate frameworks and technologies not supported by the Cloud Code? It’s now possible with WebHooks :) You can read more on our “How to set up WebHooks on SashiDo” tutorial.
  • LiveQueries: want you app to go real-time? We included them in the Dashboard so it’s easier than ever! You can read more on our “SashiDo goes Realtime with Parse Server Live Queries” tutorial.

Multi-regions are also covered: choose which one is convenient for you.

SashiDo uses Parse Open Source stack which means no vendor lock-in, because we want to keep you as a happy customer, not as a hostage :). When a new version of the Parse Server is released: we test it for bugs then fix them if we find any, and when everything is running smoothly we update your app so you don’t have to deal with this :)

We believe that you don’t have to give up the convenience of using all the features you’re used to. That’s why we constantly provide our customers with more and more tools so they can have the freedom to create amazing apps with fun … without effort!
