It’s been fairly quiet round Fb’s Parse developer platform this yr. The group launched its Web of Issues service in March and open-sourced its SDKs in August, however in any other case, we haven’t heard a lot about it. It appears like Fb is placing a bit extra emphasis on the service. The corporate as we speak introduced two new SDKs for Parse: Apple’s watchOS 2 and tvOS.
Utilizing the watchOS 2 SDK, builders can now construct apps that natively run on Apple’s semi-widespread wearable. This new SDK builds on the work Parse did for the primary model of watchOS.
In some methods, the tvOS SDK is a little more fascinating. The Parse group notes that its cellular SDKs often assume that any on-gadget storage is persistent. tvOS, nevertheless, treats each file on its disk as momentary (or as a cache) and the working system can take away any information that aren’t presently being utilized by a operating app. To nonetheless allow help for this platform, the Parse staff says it needed to rearchitect a few of its core structure to make sure the consumer’s knowledge remained obtainable on the gadget.
The Parse workforce additionally notes that it built-in the log-in function of Fb’s tvOS SDK. It’s fairly a problem to log in to an app on a TV, in any case. Utilizing this SDK, customers can use their smartphones or a pc to log in to an app on their TV.
