There are a number of services available that will host a back end for your app such as the previously mentioned Parse.
Every other week it looks like there is a new service with the tagline – “Add a web based backend to your mobile app in minutes!”.
Today I had a chance to check out a new open source framework that includes both the server side code and Objective-C classes so you can easily adding a backend to your apps.
What I really like about this library uses MongoDB and Node.js so you can place it on a wide variety of server setups and get going in minutes.
Included are classes for saving entities, performing queries, saving data files that you’d expect in a library of this type and a number of other convenience classes that make this project first-rate.
The library is DataKit from Erik Aigner and you can find it on Github here with instructions.
You can find the full API documentation here.
Thanks to Tom for the submission.
