What is it?
It's a super light-weight AJAX wrapper for Parse.com's wonderful database service.
Why did you build it?
I wanted a stupid-easy data store that I could use strictly from the client. No server needed! One can simply write a thick front end application or app prototype and serve it from the file protocol or through a Chrome extension.
Of course having your Parse.com authentication key sitting in your JS code is sort of a no-no. However, for writing applications where you are focusing your effort first on the front end this is a great tool.
No Schema! Just fire a $.parse.post & forget it. If the collection hasn't been created already it will be instantiated.
Super simple... just $.parse.get/post/put/delete
