We've raised $30M and shipped a bunch of features. Let's dive into what's been happening at Supabase during the month of August.

Quick recap

Watch a recap of this month's release.

We raised $30 million

Hot off the press, we raised our Series A. We'll use the funds to do more of the same - ship features and hire open source developers. We'll release more details soon. Read more on TechCrunch.

Supabase Series A

Realtime Security, codename: WALRUS

If you've been waiting for Row Level Security to land in Postgres subscriptions, then you're going to love our new repo: Write Ahead Log Realtime Unified Security (WALRUS). The name might be a bit forced, but the security design is deliberate. It's not in production yet, but we're making the repo public for comments using an RFC process.

Unbreakable CSV Imports

Our previous importer would choke on CSV files which were too large. Not any more!

Connection strings

We now provide a handy copy utility for various database connection strings because we were so tired of looking them up on Stack Overflow.


We released a primer on Row Level Security

RLS can be a bit foreign for developers getting started with Postgres. This video by @_dijonmusters demystifies it. If you find the video a useful medium for learning, consider subscribing to our channel.


We had a community Hackathon

We held a one-week async Hackathon. Check out all the winners - it was truly impressive what people were able to build in just 7 days.

Coming Next

Last December we moved from Alpha to Beta, with a focus on Security, Performance, and Reliability. After a couple of Launch Weeks pushing out new and sexy features, we have decided it's time to focus on these again.

By the time we're done, Supabase will be production-ready for all use cases.
