The fastest and easiest way to get started is to run MongoDB and Parse Server locally.
-## Running Parse Server locally
+## Running Parse Server
+### Locally
$ npm install -g parse-server mongodb-runner
$ mongodb-runner start
$ parse-server --appId APPLICATION_ID --masterKey MASTER_KEY --databaseURI mongodb://localhost/test
+### Inside a Docker container
+$ docker build --tag my-parse-server .
+$ docker run --name my-mongo -d mongo
+$ docker run --name my-parse-server --link my-mongo:mongo parse-server --appId APPLICATION_ID --masterKey MASTER_KEY --databaseURI mongodb://mongo/test
You can use any arbitrary string as your application id and master key. These will be used by your clients to authenticate with the Parse Server.
That's it! You are now running a standalone version of Parse Server on your machine.

personally, i've been using this project

Its really well done


This docker implementation is un-opinionated, un-bloated and focused on parse-server. The project you describe has it's own reposition, and many many files, while the image here only a few lines of code.

@flovilmart How can we run Parse-Server-Example with this Dockerizing?


Not sure how, because that docker explicitely makes the usage of the CLI not a custom express app like Parse-server-example.
