What is Supabase
Supabase is the Open Source Firebase Alternative.
Create a backend in less than 2 minutes. Start your project with a Postgres Database, Authentication, instant APIs, Realtime subscriptions and Storage.
Its goal is to offer an alternative to the Firebase platform, a vendor locked-in platform offering many features and used worldwide.
Its goal is not to have a 1 to 1 alternative for each feature of Firebase, but to offer similar services based on Open Source technologies. If it alredy exists, the Supabase team supports it (such as PostgREST). If not, they build it.
For instance, unlike Firebase, Supabase uses Postgres as its database, instead of a NoSQL engine.
So far, I’ve only contributed by translating the README into French and making several frontend improvements.
For example, I added the annoucement nav bar you can see above the header.
I look forward to contributing more when I have time, especially to the studio now that it is open source.
