Firebase is an excellent platform, but it's not a good option for Parse migration. Migrating to Firebase users must to rewrite the backend(using firebase) and rewrite the front end to connect to a new API. Additionally, you must learn how to use a new platform. Another BaaS solutions(Parse hosting) allow you to migrate without those hassles. Disclaimer: I'm a https://www.back4app.com/ co-founder, the first Parse hosting mover.

Announced at Google I/O 2016, this new version of Firebase can be the complete alternative to Parse! It has now unlimited free analytics, crash reports, push notifications and much more. The pricing for hosting is also much more appropriate. And the best part, everything is realtime! Worth checking! Google announcement: : https://firebase.googleblog.com/...

Will it support react native? Firebase 3.0 is currently not working with react native. Deprecated 2.4 works.

When your app is a breakout hit, you don't have to worry about scaling your server code or provisioning extra capacity — Firebase handles that for you.
Well, I'm sold. Gonna migrate my Parse apps to this :) p.s. any migration guides available for those of us *still* on Parse?
@decktonic So I was a big Parse user and made the switch to Firebase but recently ended up having to abandon those efforts because there are some features in Parse that aren't one-to-one with Firebase. Biggest one is the lack of fuzzy search i.e: I can't search for usernames that start with or contain the string 'Chris'. I'd really look into everything you *need* to carry over before migrating right away. But, I'll add that everything up until that point was great. Firebase is crazy fast - the persistent connection is amazing.
@gonz_ponz Thanks for the heads up! I think for my needs it will be fine, but will double-check :)
