Supabase for Supabase

Supabase: nine months of building.

Supabase is an open source Firebase alternative. We're building the features of Firebase using enterprise-grade open source tools.


We've been building for 9 months now, are we're getting even closer to Beta. This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Add users

You can now add users manually from your dashboard.

User admin

You can also perform admin functions on existing users - send password reset emails, magic links, and delete users.

Even more powerful SQL Editor

Last month we announced an improved SQL Editor, and this month we've taken it even further. The SQL Editor is now a full Monaco editor, like you'd find in VS Code. Build your database directly from the browser.

Status page

We added a Status Page which tracks the uptime and latency of the Supabase platform.

Kaizen

  • We completed a security audit by DigitalXRAID.
  • Email confirmations now enabled by default for signups.
  • Updated Benchmarking Suite to include more realistic workloads, on various different servers (results published soon).
  • You can now set/edit/remove Foreign Keys via the table editor.

Community

We had a crazy month during Hacktoberfest. In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights:

This is awesome! I'd heard about supanase a while ago and thought "hmm that seems cool" and then forgot about it. I'm so glad you're using postgres instead of some new noSQL stuff no one's heard of.

All the best!

Thanks @faraazahmad , we're very bullish on Postgres (and relational databases).

Let us know if you end up building anything with Supabase!

After 12 years of working with relational DBs and comparing it to noSQL etc. for a few years, I can tell nothing beats relational. I used to work with huge ERP systems (over 10,000 tables) and just know that for serious projects you ultimately need a good old relational DB.

We have a small bespoke ERP system for our wedding agency, with the backend currently built on Airtable + Postgres + Koa.js and Sequelize, which I hope to replace with supabase. Let's see.

P.S.: I've sent you an email (waldemar@p...com). Just wanted to make sure you get it, as I recently had issues with my emails going to spam.

Hell yeah!
Supabase raises serious money

In defense of the modern web

I expect I'll annoy everyone with this post: the anti-JavaScript crusaders, justly aghast at how much of the stuff we slather onto modern websites; the people arguing the web is a broken platform for interactive applications anyway and we should start over;

React users; the old guard with their artisanal JS and hand authored HTML; and Tom MacWright, someone I've admired from afar since I first became aware of his work on Mapbox many years ago. But I guess that's the price of having opinions.
