Kinvey Appcelerator & Facebook Integration - Clearly Innovative | Web and Mobile DevelopmentClearly Innovative | Web and Mobile Development

Over the last week or so I have been trying to integrate Appcelerator with Parse based on client’s recommendation; it does not work in a supported manner so I have moved on until Parse can address the issue.

How do you integrate the @ParseIt Javascript API with @appcelerator and not use undocumented calls – Stack Overflow

Before people disagree with me, what I am looking for from a platform is a javascript based solution for integrating with the services APIs; a restful based API makes it easier to integrate directly into an Appcelerator Titanium Alloy sync adapter, but a functional javascript API can be made to work. I know there are Objective-C and Android SDKs from Parse that could work, but that is just too much effort and cost prohibitive.

In the meantime if you are looking for alternatives, I still highly recommend Appcelerator Cloud Services it is the number one choice we have used with most of our clients and it has met all of our requirements. But we would be doing our clients a disservice if we were not aware of alternatives so below I have listed two alternatives that we have used in the past with success and with companies that appear to be committed to supporting Appcelerator and there 450,000+ developer community

Kinvey

Kinvey is an old friend that I have used for internal projects in the past, they have come a long way with the integration of additional components focused on enterprise integration. They also work with Appcelerator “out of the box” have a seperate section in their website supporting Titanium

StackMob

Here is some work I have started using StackMob https://github.com/aaronksaunders/ti_stackmob_new

StackMob also has great documentation and an excellent tutorial here on getting started with StackMob, HTML5 and Backbone
