Mongoose vs Parse: What are the differences?
Mongoose: MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment. Let's face it, writing MongoDB validation, casting and business logic boilerplate is a drag. That's why we wrote Mongoose. Mongoose provides a straight-forward, schema-based solution to modeling your application data and includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box; Parse: The complete mobile app platform. With Parse, you can add a scalable and powerful backend in minutes and launch a full-featured app in record time without ever worrying about server management. We offer push notifications, social integration, data storage, and the ability to add rich custom logic to your app’s backend with Cloud Code.
Mongoose and Parse are primarily classified as "Object Document Mapper (ODM)" and "Mobile Backend" tools respectively.
"Well documented" is the top reason why over 14 developers like Mongoose, while over 111 developers mention "Easy setup" as the leading cause for choosing Parse.
Mongoose is an open source tool with 18.8K GitHub stars and 2.62K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mongoose's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Mongoose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 85 company stacks & 88 developers stacks; compared to Parse, which is listed in 92 company stacks and 44 developer stacks.

I inherited a stack where Mongoose is used in the database layer.
It's been several months and it's still the single highest source of daily WT*s in my backend development. The API is full of irregularities and the design is a poor mix of object-orientation and stateful objects with a lot implicit behavior. Mongoose made the choices of taking the worst parts of ORMs and using them in a context where the benefits of ORMs don't apply. The only reason I'm keeping it is its handy
.populate() feature. Expect bad surprises!
