A Dynamic Developer Duo
Facebook's cloud development platform Parse recently partnered with Heroku.
The integration should make it easier for developers to take fuller advantage of both platforms' capabilities, coding apps that can run on top of the social network. The processes of creating and deploying a Heroku app, bookkeeping between Heroku and Parse apps, and registering webhooks can all be handled automatically by Parse moving forward.
"If you like Parse's Cloud Code but wish you had a full Node.js environment, this is a great solution," Parse's Pavan Athivarapu wrote on the Parse blog. "We've created a smooth experience for you to run code on either Heroku or the Parse Cloud and we're very excited about the opportunities this combination has to offer."
