Top 10 Launches of LWX


6 minute read

This launch week was unique. We had so much content that we decided to do a “main stage”, with five major features, and a “build stage” with additional content. It's a lot to digest, so here are 10 of my favorites.

Top 10

#1: We teamed up with Fly

We're launching Fly Postgres, a managed Postgres offering by Supabase and Fly's current Postgres offering is unmanaged, so we're working with them to bring the same delightful Postgres experience to Fly.

#6: Supavisor 1.0

#9: Supabase Branching

Branching gives you a Postgres database for every Pull Request. You can run experimental changes on your branch database, and then merge your changes into production when you're happy with the changes. We're rolling out branching in batches.

#10: Postgres Read Replicas

Read replicas continuously, well, replicate data from a primary database. It contains a constantly-updated copy of the data in your Primary. These are great for distributing data closer to your users to reduce application latency, and for reducing the load on your Primary database.

Bonus: we dropped an Album

I made a bet with Sam that we would make an album. Luckily Jon has a side hobby. Check out

Cool things from the community

I also wanted to highlight a few things that happened in the community over the past few weeks:

Local AI Stack with Yoko from a16z

I caught up with Yoko from Andreessen Horowitz to chat about the Local AI stack that she developed with Supabase, Ollama, Langchain, and Next.js.

Finance integrations with OpenBB

Didier explained the origins of OpenBB Terminal, the first financial terminal that is free and fully open source. He shared some details about the integration that he's building with Supabase.

Offline sync with ElectricSQL

Offline sync is one of the most requested features for Supabase. I caught up with the team at ElectricSQL to learn more about their integration.

Basejump is like “shadcn for Supabase”

In the past few months, Tiniscule has been quietly upgrading the Basejump starter kit for Supabase. I think of it a bit like shadcn for Supabase - super easy to template out a secure, scalable enterprise app. Along the way, he's been developing periphery tooling like test helpers, and pushing us to provide better primitives. One of our most common questions is “accounts and permissions?”. Basejump solves that and more.


Mockup madness from tldraw

Oh, and the tldraw team have been on an absolute tear this week:

In case you missed it …

And finally…

We wouldn't be anything without Postgres.
