Kaizen Week

We did something a bit strange during September - we didn't work on features. Quite the opposite. After Launch Week we did three subsequent weeks of Kaizen, a term we use internally to deliver constant and incremental improvement. Each week had a different focus:

  • Week 1: QA and testing
  • Week 2: Documentation
  • Week 3: Issue Backlog and Automation

It's pretty rare for a company to stop feature development altogether, but luckily we're just a bunch of developers so we all know the pain of technical debt. After 5 Launch Weeks, working on testing and backlogs feels like a bit of a relief.

We saw a lot of progress across our Open Issues - closing over 250 issues and 50 Pull Requests.

Platform Updates

The following changes to the Supabase Platform will take effect from September 11th at 7 pm PDT.

  • HTTP API requests to Supabase will automatically be redirected to HTTPS.
  • The API Key was passed to Supabase both in the Authorization header and in a separate apiKey header. This led to confusion among new users of Supabase who used the API directly. It is no longer required to send the anon key or service key via the apiKey header. If you are using Supabase via our client libraries, no change is required from your side.

March 2022: Launch Week Special

System updates

All projects

New projects

  • PostgreSQL updated to v14.1

Manual Changes Required

Update custom auth functions


The PostgREST release notes document some changes to the way GUC variables are handled here.

Supabase has created a config flag in the Dashboard to ensure that this will not be a breaking change. These changes are required before you can upgrade to PostgreSQL 14+, or use Realtime RLS.

Supabase has already updated all the default auth functions (auth.uid(), auth.role() and, however we have no way of updating functions which we have not written ourselves.


  • Any project that have custom auth functions or generally any function that use legacy GUC naming convention to access JWT claims (eg current_setting('', true).
    • This change is required for PostgreSQL 14+.
    • This change is required for Realtime row level security


  • New projects
  • Existing projects who haven't written custom auth functions.

How to update

You need to update all functions that are using the legacy GUC naming convention (current_setting('', true)) to use the new convention (current_setting('', true)::json->>'XXX').

After you have made this change, you can safely


For example, Supabase rewrote the auth.role() functions like this, to handle both legacy and new:

create or replace function auth.role()
returns text
language sql stable
as $$
select current_setting('request.jwt.claim.role', true)::text;
create or replace function auth.role()
returns text
language sql stable
as $$
current_setting('request.jwt.claim.role', true),
(current_setting('', true)::jsonb ->> 'role')

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.

Storage updates include Media Streaming, Public Buckets, Directory Uploads, and a Performance Improvements.

Streaming Media in particular opens up a whole new host of potential use cases, learn more about the updates here.


Dashboard v2

We made some major new additions to the dashboard including usage statistics, a new project home, and tons of database insights. Check the post here on what you get and how we built it.


PostgreSQL 13

All new Supabase projects will be launched with PostgreSQL 13.3, and we're working on a migration path for old projects. This gives you looooaads of new stuff out the box.


PostgREST v8.0

We worked with our friends at PostgREST to make some huge improvements. For those of you who don't know, every Supabase instance comes with a dedicated PostgREST server by default, which provides the auto-generated CRUD API that we wrap with supabase-js.


Flutter/Dart support

Our community driven libs for the fasted growing mobile and web framework are now in beta. Learn more by following the Quickstart guide.


Hooks & Functions

We made an announcement on the progress of functions, and even shipped a few preliminary components, try them out and give us feedback as we continue to move towards this next major milestone. Read the latest updates here.


June Beta 2021

Jul 4, 2021

Supabase is gearing up for another Launch Week on July the 26th. Until then, here's a few new things to try.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Vercel integration

Vercel just released their new integrations, which means you can now deploy a Postgres database on Supabase directly from your Vercel account. Check it out!


Discord logins are now available

Building a community? There's almost no better tool than Discord (we're even trialling it ourselves). If you're building a community product, Discord logins are the perfect option.


New Guides

We spent the month building up a new Guides section in our Docs. Here are a few highlights:

Ever wanted to build a Search Engine? We just released a guide which shows you how to implement Full Text Search using Postgres.


OAuth Guides

We released step-by-step guides to help you set up OAuth with Apple, Bitbucket, Facebook, GitHub, GitLab, Google, and Twitter.


Javascript + Postgres

Did you know that you can use Javascript inside your Postgres database? Here's how, with the plv8 extension.


Public Storage Buckets

Want to share all your favourite memes? Now it's even easier with Public Storage Buckets. Simply mark a bucket as "Public" and the content will be accessible without a login.

Storage upserts

Supabase Storage now supports upsert. Shoutout to @ankitjena for this Pull Request.


Server restarts

When things go wrong, sometime the best thing you can do is reboot. We released a restart button in the Dashboard, the first of many debugging tools we'll be releasing over the next few months.


Policy editor

We added a new Table Policy Editor which makes Row Level Security even easier. We even included a few templates to get you started.

May Beta 2021

Jun 10, 2021

Apple & Twitter Logins, Supabase Grid, Go & Swift Libraries. Lots of great stuff to try out this month.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Apple logins are now available

Did you know: if you ship an app to the App Store with any third-party logins, you're required to enable Apple logins as well? Now you can with Supabase Auth.

 in Supabase

Twitter logins are now available

You can also use Twitter as an OAuth provider with Supabase Auth. Twitter has a very archaic OAuth impletementation, so this one took awhile.


New storage policy editor

We shipped a new Policy Editor for managing Row Level Security on your Storage. We provide some templates to simplify the process for new developers.


Supabase Grid

We are still working on Open Sourcing our Dashboard, and took another step closer by publicly releasing a new Supabase Grid. It's not ready to use outside of the Supabase ecosystem, but over time we hope to make it usable with any Postgres Database.


Japan (Tokyo) 🇯🇵 is now available as a region

There are a huge number of Supabase developers in Japan and China, and at their request we've launched Tokyo as a region.


Return data as CSV

You can now retrieve your data as Comma Separated Values. Thanks to @andreivreja for the awesome PR.


New Go Libraries

The community started developing the Go libraries. postgrest-go is completed, @Yusuf_Papurcu and @muratmirgun are working on the remaining libraries.


New Swift Libraries

The community started developing the Swift libraries too. @satishbabariya is making huge progress on storage-swift, gotrue-swift, realtime-swift, and supabase-swift.


April Beta 2021

May 5, 2021

This month was a "gardening" month for Supabase. The team focused on stability, security, and community support. Check out what we were working on below, as well as some incredible Community contributions.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Light Mode

We're a developer tool, which means that Dark Mode is extremely popular.

This poll on twitter shows that 78.5% of our developer base use Dark Mode for the IDE

While Dark mode is great, for some people it's not an option. Dark Mode is difficult to use for developers with astigmatisms, or even just working in brightly-lit environments.

So today we're shipping Light Mode. Access it in the settings of your Dashboard.



With the help of the community, we started internationalizing our main repository:


OpenAPI spec for Storage

We released Storage Api docs built using OpenAPI (swagger).


Stripe Sync Engine (Experimental)

We open-sourced a server which keeps any Postgres database in sync with Stripe. This is experimental only. We're evaluating other tools such as Singer, which provide a more general solution (but are less "realtime"), and we're opening it up here to gather feedback.


March Beta 2021

Apr 6, 2021

Launch week, Storage, Supabase CLI, Connection Pooling, Supabase UI, and Pricing. Here's what we released last month.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Supabase Storage

Need to store images, audio, and video clips? Well now you can do it on Supabase Storage. It's backed by S3 and our new OSS storage API written in Fastify and Typescript. Read the full blog post.


Connection Pooling

The Supabase API already handles Connection Pooling, but if you're connecting to your database directly (for example, with Prisma) we now bundle PgBouncer. Read the full blog post.


React UI Component Library

We open sourced our internal UI component library, so that anyone can use and contribute to the Supabase aesthetic. It lives at . It was also the #1 Product of the Day on Product Hunt.



Now you can run Supabase locally in the terminal with supabase start. We have done some preliminary work on diff-based schema migrations, and added some new tooling for self-hosting Supabase with Docker. Blog post here.


OAuth Scopes

Thanks to a comunity contribution (@_mateomorris and @Beamanator), Supabase Auth now includes OAuth scopes. These allow you to request elevated access during login. For example, you may want to request access to a list of Repositories when users log in with GitHub. Check out the Documentation.



  • You can now manage your PostgREST configuration inside the Dashboard.
  • Our website has been redesigned. Check out our new Homepage and Blog, and our new Database, Auth, and Storage product pages.
  • We refactored some of our Filter methods to make them even easier to use. Check out the Full Text Search refactor.
  • We have added several new sections to our Docs including: Local Dev, Self Hosting, and Postgres Reference docs (all still under development).

February Beta 2021

Mar 2, 2021

Supabase is an open source Firebase alternative. We've now been building for one year. Here's what we released last month.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Dashboard Sidebars

We've improved the UX of our Dashboard with sidebars in every section, including the Table view, the Auth section, and the SQL Editor.

January Beta 2021

Feb 2, 2021

New year, new features. We've been busy at Supabase during January and our community has been even busier. Here's a few things you'll find interesting.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Count functionality

Anyone who has worked with Firebase long enough has become frustrated over the lack of count functionality. This isn't a problem with PostgreSQL! Our libraries now have support for PostgREST's exact, planned, and estimated counts. A massive thanks to @dshukertjr for this adding support to our client library.

Supabase now supports count functionality

New Auth Providers

We enabled 2 new Auth providers - Facebook and Azure. Thanks to @Levet for the Azure plugin, and once again to Netlify's amazing work with GoTrue to implement Facebook.

Supabase now supports Azure and Facebook Oauth providers

Auth Audit Trail

We have exposed the audit trail directly in the dashboard, as well as the GoTrue logs. Great for security and debugging.

Auth UI widget

In case our Auth endpoints aren't easy enough already, we've built a React Auth Widget for you to drop into your app and to get up-and-running in minutes.

Supabase has released a React Auth widget

New function

We added a helper function for extracting the logged in user's email address.

Supabase added an email function for using with Policies

New Regions

React server components

If you're excited by React Server components then check out the Supabase + Server Components experimental repo.

Use supabase with React Server components


We know that Auth can be a bit daunting when you're just starting out, so we have created some intro videos to get you up to speed in no time:


  • Performance: We migrated all of our subdomains to Route53, implementing custom Let's Encrypt certs for your APIs. As a result, our read benchmarks are measuring up 12% faster.
  • Performance: We upgrade your databases to the new GP3 storage for faster and more consistent throughput.

Supabase raised a Seed Round

We raised $6M from Y Combinator, Mozilla, and Coatue. You can read more on TechCrunch.


  • Supabase is now 26% faster in regions which support Graviton (1460 reqs/s up from 1167 reqs/s)
  • We launched a new region in Sao Paulo.
  • Postgres Array Support. You can now edit Native Postgres array items in the grid editor or the side panel.
  • We added better support for your custom Database Types.
  • Fixed some buggy keyboard commands. We're continuously improving key commands in the Table editor.

Even more powerful SQL Editor

Last month we announced an improved SQL Editor, and this month we've taken it even further. The SQL Editor is now a full Monaco editor, like you'd find in VS Code. Build your database directly from the browser.

This image shows our improved SQL Editor

Status page

We added a Status Page which tracks the uptime and latency of the Supabase platform.

Nov 3, 2020

We're now 8 months into building Supabase. We're focused on performance, stability, and reliability but that hasn't prevented us from shipping some great features.

This is also available as a blog post and a video demo.

Supabase.js 1.0

In the lead-up to our Beta launch, we've released supabase-js version 1.0 and it comes with some major Developer Experience improvements. We received a lot of feedback from the community and we've incorporated it into our client libraries for our 1.0 release.

Check out the blog post to learn more.

More powerful SQL Editor

Although it was only intended to be a temporary feature, the SQL Editor has become one of the most useful features of Supabase. This month we decided to make give it some attention, adding Tabs and making it full-screen. This is the first of many updates, we've got some exciting things planned for the SQL Editor.

This image shows a SQL Editor with tabs. Originally our SQL editor was very basic, but we're moving towards something very powerful.

Keyboard shortcuts for Power Users

For the heavy table editor users, we've gone ahead and added a bunch of key commands and keyboard shortcuts so you can zip around and manipulate your tables faster than ever.

This image shows some of the keyboard shortcuts we introduced on the table editor.

One of the most requested Auth features was the ability to send magic links that your users can use to log in. You can use this with new or existing users, and alongside passwords or stand alone.

This image shows a template where developers can edit the magic links email which is sent to their users on sign up.


  • We have new and improved docs.
  • We converted realtime-js to TypeScript.
  • Dashboard Performance: we heavily optimised our dashboard routes.
  • With the help of the community, we closed a lot of issues during Hacktoberfest.
  • We have started benchmarking all the open source tools we use. We'll publish the results this month.

Supabase July Alpha Updates

This is also available as a full blog post with videos.

After 5 months of building, we're releasing one of our most anticipated features: Supabase Auth.


This month, we're ecstatic to announce a feature we think you'll love: Supabase Auth. It's too big to fit into a monthly update so look out for a full update in the next few days.

We want to make it easy to get started adding Auth to your app, so we've released a simple example and a video tutorial which shows you how to implement a basic auth system using PostgreSQL's Row Level Security.

Table Editor

We've made some massive improvements to our Table Editor that we're excited to share.

Relationship drill down

Last month we made it easy to drill into your table relationships. This month, we make it possible to drill multiple levels deep.

Drill into your releationships

Add, delete, and download rows

We're making it easier to manipulate your data. Next month, you'll be able to add and remove columns directly from the Table view.

Download data as a CSV

New Postgres Extensions

If you launch a new Supabase project, you'll have access to several new Postgres extensions:

  • pgsql-http: HTTP client for PostgreSQL, retrieve a web page from inside the database.
  • pgjwt: PostgreSQL implementation of JSON Web Tokens
  • plpgsql_check: a linter tool for language PL/pgSQL
  • pljava: write Java in your stored procedures, triggers, and functions


We have a number of small improvements:

  • Added Auth documentation to the auto-generated docs in each project
  • Added a new or filter to the client library
  • Table View now remembers which tabs you had open.
  • We have released a lot of new functionality to pg-api, a server for for managing Postgres internals via a REST interface.
  • Performance: the "flash of black" which was appearing on page transition is now gone

Supabase June Alpha Updates

This is also available as a full blog post with videos.

We're now 4 months into building Supabase, which means another major update. Here's a few things we think you'll love in this release.

View relational data

We're sometimes asked how we will make Postgres as simple as Firebase, since Postgres is a relational database. This month we're making our first steps to prove that relational databases can be even easier to use than document stores. We're releasing an excel-like editing interface which can drill down into your relational data.


Manage JSON data

Postgres is an amazing database, giving the flexibility of a document store with the power of a RDBMS. If you use JSON data in Postgres, then we want to make that easy too. Supabase detects when your column is JSON or JSONB, and provides an easy way to edit and view your data. More improvements coming soon for this feature!


Choose your region

If you noticed a bit of latency on Supabase, it's because your projects were previously set up in Singapore. It was always our intention that you'd be able to choose your database region, and this month we've delivered it. In the next releases we'll even allow you to go multi-region, instantly replicating your database close to your customers.



A guiding principle at Supabase is zero lock-in. So this month we are exposing your daily database backups on the dashboard, giving you a simple way to migrate off Supabase. We have a lot more to build in this space (WAL-G!), so watch this space.
