Ribbit - How would I Query Parse for users that follow me?


Basically wanting to add a feature so i could get the number of followers i have, aka the number of people that have added me on the app. I was wondering what the Parse query would look like?

Just queried users that had the [PFUser CurrentUser] in their 'following' array in parse

Without getting into actual code. You're looking at something like this:

  • Find the current user id - PFUser *currentUser = [PFUser currentUser];
  • Get all users - This is similar to code you have used in the "Edit Friends" class
  • Set up an object to hold whatever you're passing. I'd go with: - int x;
  • PFQuery *query = [PFUser query]; [query whereKey:@"friendsRelation" equalTo:currentUser]; // Check Parse Documentation
  • Then if (currentUser is in friendsRelation) - x++; return x; else return x;

NSLog(@"Friends added you %@", x);

Definitely not code, but if you haven't tried the Parse forums, I'd suggest starting there, if you're really stuck. Also check the documentation, such as this page. https://www.parse.com/docs/ios_guide#queries-relational/iOS
