Facebook may be pulling the plug on Parse Jan. 28, 2017, but Parse announced in a blog post that its recently announced open-source back end, Parse Server, now supports iOS and Android push notifications.

Parse also said it is introduced a tool called PushAdapter, which allows Parse Server to send out push notifications via third-party push providers.

Speaking of third-party push providers, OneSignal said in an email to SocialTimes that it released its own tool to automatically migrate push messaging data from Parse, adding that within 24 hours of the announcement of Parse’s impending shutdown, more than 100 apps signed on for its tool.
