Parse today released the Parse PHP SDK, which you can download yourself from GitHub. The Facebook-owned company says the release is its first SDK for a server-side language as well as the first to be “truly open-source.”
Until today, accessing Parse from PHP could only be done from the REST API. While a few Parse API wrapper libraries have been released by third parties on GitHub, Parse decided to build a first-party SDK after “many developers requested better PHP support.”
In related news, Facebook says since it launched the completely re-invented Facebook SDK for PHP at its conference three months ago, it has seen over 160 commits with solid contributions and enhancements from 20 passionate developers. The open-sourcing of the Parse PHP SDK was thus a no-brainer.
