We’re going all out on Chisel, our newest product currently in early stages of development.
If you didn’t already know, Chisel is an API-first headless CMS built on top of Parse-Server.
Well thanks to the awesome Electron library, we can also bring you desktop applications for your preferred OS, starting with this
Chisel for Mac
The core Chisel application & feature development status is very much in-line with the web version. Chisel for Mac comes with a Parse-Server instance bundled in with the binary. Right now, all you need to do is have mongodb running locally and you’ll be able to use it. The Chisel app will use your local mongodb with the bundled parse server instance and you have a working offline API-first headless CMS.
As well as the general roadmap for the Chisel app, the key requirement for the Mac app is to be able to configure alternative Parse-Server instance connections, such as a remote, hosted instance that you might have on Heroku, AWS or another Parse hosting service.

I’d love to try out the preview of Chisel for Mac by @beachdotio
Unlike Chisel’s sister app, Hammer, I do plan to bring Chisel to Windows and Linux too.
