Ember Data Adapter for Parse Build Status

An Ember Data plugin built to use the Parse REST API. This is a full Ember implementation against the Parse REST API without the use of the Parse JavaScript SDK.

The demo application contains some example usage.


  • Provides the translation of objectId to id for identity mapping.
  • Provides encoding of hasMany associations to arrays of Parse Pointer objects.
  • Implements the persistence layer to Parse by extending the Ember Data REST Adapter.
  • Provides a
    property which can set a session token.
  • Login
  • Signup
  • Request password reset
  • Is stored at the special user endpoint at parse
  • Provides transforms for file, geo, and date types at Parse.

Get Started

You'll want to get an account at Parse. After this you will be provided with two keys:

  • Application ID
  • REST API Key

You will need each of these to configure the ParseAdapter via entries in the

var ENV = {

APP: { applicationId: '', restApiId: '' } };

Any model using this adapter will be stored on Parse. Create models as you would normally:

App.Post = DS.Model.extend({
  // Attributes can use normal transforms
  title: DS.attr('string'),
  body: DS.attr('string'),
  // Or there are special transforms for some data-types
  avatar: DS.attr('parse-file'),
  // There is a parse-date transform, but sometimes dates are just strings
  updatedAt: DS.attr('date'),
  // ALWAYS refer to relationships as async, for now.
  user: DS.belongsTo('user', {async: true})

Security Warning

Before publishing your app you should disable REST Push. Parse apps are created with this feature enabled by default. If this feature is enabled anyone with your

Application ID
will be able to send push notifications to your user's devices. Anyone using your app has access your
Application ID

To disable REST Push:

  • Login to your Parse account.
  • Click on your application.
  • Go to Settings > Push.
  • And disable REST Push.
  • It should look like the image below.
