Use Supabase with Vue

Learn how to create a Supabase project, add some sample data to your database, and query the data from a Vue app.


Set up a Supabase project with sample data

Create a new project in the Supabase Dashboard.

After your project is ready, create a table in your Supabase database using the SQL Editor in the Dashboard. Use the following SQL statement to create a countries table with some sample data.

  -- Create the table
  CREATE TABLE countries (
    name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL
  -- Insert some sample data into the table
  INSERT INTO countries (name) VALUES ('United States');
  INSERT INTO countries (name) VALUES ('Canada');
  INSERT INTO countries (name) VALUES ('Mexico');

Create a Vue app

Create a Vue app using the npm init command.

npm init vue@latest my-app

Install the Supabase client library

The fastest way to get started is to use the supabase-js client library which provides a convenient interface for working with Supabase from a Vue app.

Navigate to the Vue app and install supabase-js.

1cd my-app && npm install @supabase/supabase-js

Create the Supabase client

Create a /src/lib directory in your Vue app, create a file called supabaseClient.js and add the following code to initialize the Supabase client with your project URL and public API (anon) key.

  import { createClient } from '@supabase/supabase-js'

  export const supabase = createClient('https://<project>.supabase.co', '<your-anon-key>')

Query data from the app

Replace the existing content in your App.vue file with the following code.

  <script setup>
  import { ref, onMounted } from 'vue'
  import { supabase } from './lib/supabaseClient'

  const countries = ref([])

  async function getCountries() {
    const { data } = await supabase.from('countries').select()
    countries.value = data

  onMounted(() => {

      <li v-for="country in countries" :key="country.id">{{ country.name }}</li>

Start the app

Start the app and go to http://localhost:5173 in a browser and you should see the list of countries.

1npm run dev
