  • Creating New Supabase Users In NextJS | 2021-04-07
    This article walks through how to create new users for a Supabase database with an API written in NextJS. Note: at the time of this writing that Supabase is free for beta users which is pretty nifty as they include a hosted Postgres database which makes it faster to get an application up and running with a functional database. After the Beta period wraps up Supabase is planning on charging for hosting and will offer current Beta users 1 year of base tier usage for free.

    Thanks for the tips. Cloudflare workers seems to be really a good option. Is definetely among the more interesting. After posting this I came across supabase and was looking deeper. Have no exp with postgres but I don't think it's really complicated for the simpler use cases. Indeed what scares me away a bit is that the free tier will be "paused". I assumed its just blocking API access until you activate it again, but unable to find source now. Interesting. Big advantage is also that it can be self hosted
  • File storage methods added to supabase-js
    If you don't want to pay. You can host it yourself.
  • Storage is now available in Supabase (YC S20) | 2021-03-30

    This is very much an “alpha” release of Storage. We have a lot of great features planned for a CDN, automatic resizing, optimizations, and since it’s using Postgres there potentially are a few neat things we can do with Full Text Search and Data Loading. A few of the team will be here to answer any questions - my cofounder @awalias and @steve-chavez from PostgREST, @inian, and @1_over_n

    Is your only complaint that the dashboard is not open source? | 2021-03-30
    Hi smalltalks, cofounder here.

    Every component of Supabase is MIT, Apache 2, or Postgres licensed - apart from the dashboard

    The code to self host it is in our main repo:

    I do think we could have better/cleared docs, which we can fix up tomorrow.

    Do note: we raised 6M, and we are under no pressure to trade our integrity for growth. We have very open-source-friendly and patient investors in Mozilla, Coatue, YC, and a very nice group of developers: | 2021-03-30
    > Is some part of the Firebase code closed source or less "Open" where the Supabase equivalent is not?

    All of the Firebase backend is proprietary, and their client code is open source.

    The Supabase backend is here:

    This is the set up we use for every project on our hosted platform. These backend tools are either built by Supabase, supported by Supabase (we employ maintainers), or licensed with OSI-compliant licenses.

    Our client libraries are all open source, Apache 2.0 licensed.

    Supabase is open source in every definition of the word. I think the problem is our self-hosting docs, so we'll spend the day improving this. | 2021-03-30
    That's a fair criticism. We've looked closely at everyone's comments and it's obvious that we need to make self-hosting Supabase much easier. This has always been the intention and has always been possible: everything except our dashboard has OSI-compatible licenses, so anyone can run the same back end that we do.

    But "technically possible" isn't good enough. It needs to be straightforward, and we're going to invest some effort into making it so. The only thing I'll say in our defence is that this didn't happen for business reasons, i.e. there's no secret plan to hobble the self-hosted version. Quite the opposite, we want the open-source tech to be super easy for everyone to run. We only want people to pay us because our paid product is valuable, not because the free tech is somehow hard to use! We only introduced billing yesterday, and we aren't charging anyone yet. But from the feedback, I understand why this wasn't obvious. It needs to be much clearer how to put the pieces together and we're going to prioritise this now.

    I have started updating [0] our docs in this PR [1]. We will merge this tomorrow morning as part of our CLI release [2]. The Docker setup in this PR is 100% compatible with every project on Supabase, and we also link to several of the one-click tools which we have deployed into the AWS and Digital Ocean marketplaces. All this still needs improvement, this is just a first step. If anyone still has trouble setting up a self-hosted version of Supabase, please contact me (my email is in my profile) and I'll personally do whatever it takes to get you up and running. Then I'll update the docs some more so those difficulties won't happen again. Hopefully with a few more iterations this will be as smooth as it should be. Certainly the tech is there and ready to go!

  • Supabase Beta Pricing | 2021-03-29
    If you aren't confident in our business model though, we're open source. You can host it yourself[4]. Even better, everything we build is centered around Postgres, so you can pretty much `pgdump` your database and take it to your favourite Postgres platform.

    We'd love to hear your feedback for the pricing. Also look out for a few more things we're releasing this week: Storage, a CLI, and some other Postgres-related items.
