Node Parse API

install

npm install node-parse-api

examples

setup with MASTER_KEY

var Parse = require('node-parse-api').Parse;

var APP_ID = ...;
var MASTER_KEY = ...;

var app = new Parse(APP_ID, MASTER_KEY);

setup with API_KEY

var Parse = require('node-parse-api').Parse;

var options = {
    app_id:'...',
    api_key:'...' // master_key:'...' could be used too
}

var app = new Parse(options);

insert an object

  • insert(className string, data object, callback function)
// add a Foo object, { foo: 'bar' }
app.insert('Foo', { foo: 'bar' }, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

insert a User

  • insertUser(data object, callback function)
app.insertUser({
  username: 'foo',
  password: 'bar'
}, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

More properties can be provided, but username and password are required.

insert a User with a Pointer

app.insertUser({
  username: 'foo',
  password: 'bar',
  pointer/*can have any name*/: {
    __type: 'Pointer',
    className: <string>,
    objectId: <string>
    }
  }, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

insert a User with GeoPoints

app.insertUser({
  username: 'foo',
  password: 'bar',
  location: {
    __type: 'GeoPoint',
    latitude: <int>,
    longitude: <int>
    }
  }, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

user login

  • loginUser(username string, password string, callback function)

Response contains all of the user fields except password, also includes a sessionToken for this user.

app.loginUser('foo', 'bar', function (error, response) {
  // response = {sessionToken: '', createdAt: '', ... }
  });

me

  • me(sessionToken string, callback function)
app.me('sessionToken', function (error, response) {
  // response is same as getUser response
});

insert a file

  • insertFile(fileName string, data string/buffer, contentType string, callback function)
// first upload the file to the parse cloud
app.insertFile('foo.txt', 'bar', 'text/plain', function (err, response) {
  // then insert a new object with the link to the new file
  app.insert('MyFile', {__type: 'File', "name": response.name }, function (error, response) {
  });
});

find one

  • find(className string, query object, callback function)
// the Foo with id = 'someId'
app.find('Foo', {objectId: 'someId'}, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

Returned fields can be restricted with the 'keys' query.

var query = {
  objectId: 'someId',
  keys: 'foo,bar'
};
app.find('Foo', query, function (error, response) {
  //response object will only contain foo and bar fields, as well as the special built-in fields (objectId, createdAt and updatedAt)
  });

find many

  • find(className string, query object, callback function)
// all Foo objects with foo = 'bar'
app.find('Foo', {where: {foo: 'bar'}}, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

// all Foo objects
// '', null, undefined or any other falsy value will work
app.find('Foo', '', function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
}):

All types of query constraints Parse provides can be added to the query object as properties. (order, limit, keys, count, include...)

var query = {
  where: {
    foo: 'bar',
    baz: 'qux'
  },
  limit: 10,
  skip: 5,
  order: '-createdAt'
};
app.find('Foo', query, function (error, response ) {
  // the first 5 results will be ignored and the next 10 results will be returned
  // response.results will contain up to 10 objects with foo = 'bar' and baz = 'qux', sorted from latest to oldest
  });

find one user

  • getUser(query object, callback function)
app.find({objectId: 'someId'}, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

find many users

  • getUser(query object, callback function)
// all users with foo = 'bar'
app.find({where: {foo: 'bar'}}, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

// all users
// '', null, undefined or any other falsy value will work
app.find('', function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
}):

count the number of objects

var query = {
  count: 1,
  limit: 0
};
app.find('Foo', query, function (error, response) {
  // {
  //   results: [],
  //   count: 123
  // }
});

edit an object

  • update(className string, objectId string, callback function)
app.update('Foo', 'someId', {foo: 'bar'}, function (err, response) {
  console.log(response);
});

delete an object

  • delete(className string, objectId string, callback function)
app.delete('Foo', 'someId', function (err, response) {
  // response = {}
});

delete all objects in a class

  • deleteAll(className string, callback function)
app.deleteAll('Foo', function (err, response) {
  // response = [{success: {}, success: {}, ... }]
});

delete user

  • deleteUser(objectId string, [sessionToken string], callback function)

If you are using the master key you don't need any session tokens.

app.deleteUser('someId', function (err, response) {
  // response = {}
});

If you're using the rest api key you will need a session token and will only be able to delete the user object of the matching user.

app.deleteUser('someId', 'sessionToken', function (error, response) {
  // response = {}
});

delete all users

  • deleteAllUsers(callback function)

This will only work when using the master key.

app.deleteAllUsers(function (err, response) {
  // response = [{success: {}, success: {}, ... }]
});

reset a password

  • passwordReset(data string, callback function)
//email is built into Parse's special User class
app.passwordReset(email, function(err, response){
  console.log(response);
});

edit a user object

  • updateUser(objectId string, data object, [sessionToken string], callback function)

With master key

app.updateUser('someId', {email: 'foo@example.com'}, function(err, response){
  console.log(response);
});

or with rest api key

app.updateUser('someId', {email: 'foo@example.com'}, 'sesstionToken', function(err, response){
  console.log(response);
});

batch requests

  • batch(requests array, callback function)
var requests = [
  {
    method: 'POST',
    path: '/1/classes/Foo',
    body: {
      foo: 'bar1',
      baz: 'qux1'
    }
  },
  {
    method: 'POST',
    path: '/1/classes/Foo',
    body: {
      foo: 'bar2',
      baz: 'qux2'
    }
  }
];
app.batch(requests, function (error, response) {
  // response = [{success: {createdAt: '', objectId: ''}, {success: {...}}}]
});

insert installation data

//first arg is either 'ios' or 'android'.  second arg is either the Apple deviceToken or the Android installationId.
app.insertInstallationData("ios", "0123456784abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef", function(err, response){
  if (err) {
    console.log(err);
  } else {
    console.log(response);
  }
});

insert installation data with timeZone

//first arg is either 'ios' or 'android'.  second arg is either the Apple deviceToken or the Android installationId.  Third arg is the timezone string.
app.insertInstallationDataWithTimeZone("ios", "0123456784abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef", "EST", function(err, response){
  if (err) {
    console.log(err);
  } else {
    console.log(response);
  }
});

insert installation data with channels

//first arg is either 'ios' or 'android'.  second arg is either the Apple deviceToken or the Android installationId.  Third arg is the channels array.
arr = ["news", "sports"];
app.insertInstallationDataWithChannels("ios", "0123456784abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef", arr, function(err, response){
  if (err) {
    console.log(err);
  } else {
    console.log(response);
  }
});

insert installation data with timeZone and channels

//first arg is either 'ios' or 'android'.  second arg is either the Apple deviceToken or the Android installationId.  Third arg is the timezone string.  4th is the channels array.
arr = ["news", "sports"];
app.insertInstallationDataWithTimeZoneAndChannels("ios", "0123456784abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef", "EST", arr, function(err, response){
  if (err) {
    console.log(err);
  } else {
    console.log(response);
  }
});

create a role for a particular user

//create a data object that links the user object's objectId to the role

var data = {
  name: 'Administrator',
  ACL: {
      "*": {
        "read": true
      }
    },
  roles: {
      "__op": "AddRelation",
      "objects": [
        {
          "__type": "Pointer",
          "className": "_Role",
         "objectId": "<objectId>"
        }
      ]
    },
  users: {
      "__op": "AddRelation",
      "objects": [
        {
          "__type": "Pointer",
          "className": "_User",
          "objectId": "<objectId>"
        }
      ]
    }
};

  app.insertRole(data, function(err, resp){
     console.log(resp);
   });

get a role

//pass the role object's objectId
app.getRole("<objectId>", function(err, resp){
  console.log(resp);
});

update a role

//pass the objectId of the role, data contains the user's objectId

var data = {
  users: {
      "__op": "RemoveRelation",
      "objects": [
        {
          "__type": "Pointer",
          "className": "_User",
          "objectId": "<objectId>"
        }
      ]
    }
};

  app.updateRole("<objectId>", data, function(err, resp){
    console.log(resp);
  });

delete a role

//pass the objectId of the role
app.deleteRole("<objectId>", function(err, resp){});

get all the roles

app.getRoles(function(err, resp){});

get a role against a cetain param

var params = {
   where: { name: "Administrator" }
};

   app.getRoles(params, function(err, resp){
     console.log(resp);
   });

send a push notification

//The data param has to follow the data structure as described in the [Parse REST API](https://www.parse.com/docs/rest#push)
var notification = {
  channels: [''],
  data: {
    alert: "sending too many push notifications is obnoxious"
  }
};
app.sendPush(notification, function(err, resp){
  console.log(resp);
});

note on sending dates

//when inserting a data, you must use the Parse date object structure, i.e.:
{
  "__type": "Date",
  "iso": new Date("<year>", "<month>", "<day>").toJSON()
}
