"DB/Backend: @supabase_io Reason: Takes care of Auth, DB hosting, API. Open source, easy to eject into something else. I love SQL. Cloud IDE is incredible for productivity."


"Been trying out this new stack. Loving it so far. Next.js (Frontend) + Stitches.js (Styling) + Radix (Primitives & Icons) + Supabase (Backend) + Vercel (Deployment) 😍 Thank you @vercel @Modulz @supabase_io for this amazing DX."

"Another month, another impressive @supabase_io release. It’s rare to see a startup ship in public so consistently."


"There are a lot of indie hackers building in public, but it’s rare to see a startup shipping as consistently and transparently as Supabase. Their upcoming March releases look to be 🔥 Def worth a follow! also opened my eyes as to how to value add in open source."


"This weekend I made a personal record 🥇 on the less time spent creating an application with social login / permissions, database, cdn, infinite scaling, git push to deploy and for free. Thanks to @supabase_io and @vercel"


"I'm excited to know that there's a Firebase alternative OSS project, @supabase_io. It's not a mere copy, you can use Postgre. I like Firebase but always miss the power of SQL."


"That’s the best part of @supabase_io! No vendor lock 😎"


"Just span up a @supabase_io app for my new side project. Honestly thinking the tagline "Firebase Alternative" should really be "A Far Superior Firebase Alternative". Love writing SQL in the cloud! Big love ❤️"


"Lack of count in firebase/firestore is such a nightmare and workaround solutions are crappy. I experienced it while implementing good job Supabase 👍"


"Looking for a Firebase alternative? Consider using the open-source @supabase_io. It's as simple as Firebase but I found the dashboard UX more intuitive and hey it's OSS! It's in beta so you can use it for free rn."


"Me using @supabase_io for the first time right now 🤯"

"Tried @supabase_io for the first time yesterday. Amazing tool! I was able to get my Posgres DB up in no time and their documentation on operating on the DB is super easy! 👏 Can't wait for Cloud functions to arrive! It's gonna be a great Firebase alternative!"


"10/100 All day i was migrating my project from firebase to @supabase_io Because it is perfect and simple!!! I like design and API for understandable. There are in BETA now. Just try!🧪"

"Wait. Is it so easy to write queries for @supabase_io ? It's like simple SQL stuff!"

"I think you'll love @supabase_io :-) Open-source, PostgreSQL-based & zero magic."


"@supabase_io is the answer to all of firebase’s problems imo"


"@supabase_io is insane."


"It’s fun, feels lightweight, and really quick to spin up user auth and a few tables. Almost too easy! Highly recommend."


"I’m probably the wrong person to ask because I pick tools based on UX. Supabase was immediately approachable: instant setup, fast web app, auth, and easy APIs. Same reason I liked Firebase when I first discovered."


"Now things are starting to get interesting! Firebase has long been the obvious choice for many #flutter devs for the ease of use. But their databases are NoSQL, which has its downsides... Seems like @supabase_io is working on something interesting here!"


"Honestly, I really love what @supabase_io is doing, you don't need to own a complete backend, just write your logic within your app and you'll get a powerful Postgresql at your disposal."


"Next.js, @supabase_io, @stripe, and @vercel. Supastack™"


"I've really enjoyed the DX! Extremely fun to use, which is odd to say about a database at least for me."


"Supabase team is doing some awesome stuff #supabase #facts @supabase_io"


"Did a website with @supabase_io last week with no prior experience with it. Up and running in 20 minutes. It's awesome to use. Thumbs up"


"Next.js, @supabase_io, @stripe, and @vercel. Supastack™"


"I just learned about @supabase_io and im in love 😍 Supabase is an open source Firebase alternative! EarListen (& react) to database changes 💁 Manage users & permissions 🔧 Simple UI for database interaction"
