Supabase Alpha August 2020


3 minute read

We're 6 months into building our hosted database platform and we've made some major improvements to our auth system and table view.

Quick Demo

Watch a full demo:

Easily create tables

Set up tables and columns directly from the table view.

Invite your team

You can now invite team members to your organisation.

Auth: Email Confirmations

You can now enable Email Confirmations for new users. This can be toggled on or off and the template for this email can be edited via the dashboard.

TypeScript support

The biggest communty contribution to date, @thorwebdev added TypeScript support to Supabase. He even live streamed the process.

This git shows how TypeScript makes it even easier to use Supabase, through VSCode's intellisense.


We have a number of small improvements:

From the community

The release of Auth last month accelerated our community growth, based on Orbit Levels.

This image shows our community growth. In August we had about 250 active members across GitHub and Twitter.

Coming next

Our focus now is to move from Alpha to Beta. This involves stabilising our Auth API, improving dashboard performance, and benchmarking all of our systems. This could take more than one month, as we have a number of company-related activities to wrap up (we just finished YC!).
