This is a post that shows how to install and configure serverless framework for google cloud platform. serverless icon

How to install your own parse-server on OpenShift

UPDATE October 2017: As of today, OpenShift 2 is officially reached its end of life and is shut down rendering this guide irrelevant. I will keep it here for historical purposes.

Please note that this guide was for version 2 of OpenShift cloud platform. parse-server-example supports OpenShift 3 platform out of the box, so there is no need for any external guide.

After understanding their service needs we decided to go with Parse BaaS solution, and it was all good until the dramatic Parse Announcement  about the retirement of their services. So there was a bit of frustration.. But then we realized that parse-server gone open-sourced, so I said: You know what, this is even better! We will still use it as before, but now we will also own it!
