Install Parse-SDK-Android

Open your project's build.gradle file (not the module file) and add this dependency,

allprojects {
repositories {
...
maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
}
}

Then open your module build.gradle file and add the Parse library (with the latest version being)

dependencies {
implementation "com.github.parse-community.Parse-SDK-Android:parse:1.18.5"
}

Initialize Parse

Setup Parse using your server configuration:

MyApp.java
import com.parse.Parse;
import android.app.Application;
public class MyApp extends Application
{
@Override
public void onCreate()
{
super.onCreate();
Parse.initialize(new Parse.Configuration.Builder(this)
.applicationId("YOUR_APP_ID")
.clientKey("YOUR_CLIENT_KEY")
.server("https://xxxx.parse-symbyoz.com/parse/")
.enableLocalDataStore()
.build());
}
}

The custom Application class must be registered in AndroidManifest.xml

AndroidManifest.xml
<application
android:name=".MyApp"
...>
...
</application>
