Quick Tip: Serve Parse Files via HTTPS

Trying to serve your Parse files via SSL/HTTPS? You’ll notice that you can’t force it, and Parse doesn’t support this via their file URL scheme. But you can use the same trick Parse uses on Anypic.

Replace http:// with https://s3.amazonaws.com/.

So if you start with this:


The final url will look something like this:


In ruby, that’s:

url.gsub "http://", "https://s3.amazonaws.com/"

In JavaScript:

var url = // your url...
var subbedUrl = url.replace("http://", "https://s3.amazonaws.com/");

Boom - fully secure Parse files.

You’re welcome.
