Parse Open Sources Its SDKs

Parse, a company acquired by Facebook in 2013 has open sourced its SDKs for iOS, OS X, and Android. In an announcement by Nikita Lutsenko of Parse wrote:

We’re happy to announce that we’re open sourcing all of our SDKs, with iOS, OS X, and Android SDKs available today, and our other SDKs soon to come. Our SDKs are widely used by the mobile development community — in fact, Parse SDKs now power more than 800 million active app-device pairs per month. They’re an important part of our platform, enabling developers to get up and running with Parse in minutes. Today we’re excited to show developers what’s under the hood for the first time.

Earlier Facebook had open sourced several of its projects React, Presto, HHVM, OSQuery, and RocksDB.

Nikita also added:

Along with open sourcing our SDKs, we’re also opening up our developer support flow. Our new SDK support flow utilizes GitHub Issues, where you can interact directly with us and other Parse developers. Since the source code is available to all, you’ll also be able to submit Pull Requests for any bugs you find.
