December 2020 and January 2021 Update

Johan Eliasson

In summary, this is what we've done in December 2020 and January 2021:

  • Image transformation on the fly for images in Nhost Storage.
  • Allowed roles option to be used during registration.
  • Ideas page updated with statuses and a roadmap.
  • James created a YouTube tutorial building a quiz app with Nhost.

Image transformation

Every image in Nhost Storage can now be transformed on the fly by specifying width, height, and quality. To transform an image, add w, h, and q as a query parameter.

Here's an example of transforming an image to width 150 and quality to 80%:

Transforming images can make your app and images load faster. If your user uploads large raw images, you can transform those images when they are being displayed in your app.

Allowed user roles option

You can now specify the allowed roles a user can apply to itself during registration.

We've added statuses (open, planned, in progress and live) for all ideas suggested by our community. We've also added a Roadmap where you can follow the progress of all ideas.
