HOOK — Open-source alternative to Parse.com written in PHP
With the official announcement of Parse.com retirement, I feel that I have to “sell” the backend I’ve been working on in the past couple of years.
HOOK is a backend as a service designed with real needs of a digital agency: usually with small projects and a tight deadline. It’s all about making developers happy and delivering the final product faster, such as websites, mobile applications, interactive installations, etc.
It makes you feel like you’re using a NoSQL database, even though you’re not. You’ll be able to manipulate your tables as-you-go during the discovery process of your product, as little things always change on development time.
It has a commandline interface that enables developers to have full control of the database, back-end modules and application configuration during development and after production deployment.
