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.
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.
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.
Custom SMS templates
Dart and Flutter Docs
We launched the South Korea region
We added another region for those wanting to host their data and APIs in Seoul. We now have 12 regions to choose from
Table creation is even easier
You can now create columns while creating your table. We've also added improvements for composite primary keys and foreign key creation.
Unbreakable CSV Imports
Our previous importer would choke on CSV files which were too large. Not any more!
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.
We had a team Hackathon
The Supabase team didn't want to miss out on the fun so we held our own hackathon. It was a good way to dog food. Some notable projects include
- Supaflix by @abc3 [GitHub] - a Netflix clone build with Supabase
- Personal-Casts by @everconfusedguy [GitHub] - converts Youtube videos and articles into a personal podcast feed.
- And it wouldn't be a Supabase hackathon without a high-effort meme entry. Check out meme.town by @Joshenlimek [GitHub]
We hit 18,000 stars on GitHub, and got to the top of GitHub trending for Typescript.
- HCaptcha - users can add captcha on their passwordless logins to prevent abuse
- Email change endpoint is fixed (sends out 2 emails, one to the old email and one to the new one)
- Allow a function with single unnamed parameter to be called with POST
pg_net (Database Webhooks)
- Better handling of URL errors
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.
