Pro Plan

Since we launched the new version of Nhost two months ago we've only had the free plan available.

Now we're launching our Pro plan ($25/mo). The Pro plan comes with generous resources and the ability to pay extra for extra resources such as database, storage, and network traffic.

Here are some benefits of the Pro plan:

  • Apps never go to sleep
  • Daily database backups
  • 10 GB database
  • 25 GB file storage
  • 50 GB network traffic

See the full pricing and comparison on our pricing page.

Btw, we're also working on providing enterprise plans which will include dedicated databases, premium support, SLA, horizontal scaling, and more. If you're interested in learning more please reach out to me at

Auto-generated documentation for our SDKs

Since our launch of React and Next.js SDKs last month we found it hard to keep our reference documentation in sync with the code. To spread out the same information in multiple locations is something we really don't like.

Luckily, all our SDKs are written in TypeScript so we could use a tool like TypeDoc to automatically generate all documentation. The problem with TypeDoc is that the output is technically correct but not very useful nor practical.

So we built a tool on top of TypeDoc that can understand the output of TypeDoc and converts it to useful and nice-looking markdown files for our documentation.

From now on, we only have to update our code and inline documentation in our code. The documentation will then be generated based on the code.

Here's an example of the method to change email in our JavaScript Client. This is the code:

And here's the automatically generated documentation:

If you want to help us keep our documentation and clients up to date, everything is open source at


We've also moved our whole documentation to use Docusauris. Docusaurus is an open-source framework to ship beautiful documentation websites with a focus on markdown files. It's built using React so it's easy to customize if needed. Also, the logo is cute!


Nhost Auth Updates

We've rolled out updates to Nhost Auth. Here's a short summary:

  • Error redirects to the client if there is an error during the OAuth sign-in flow [link].
  • Consistent error messages across all endpoints [link]
  • Consistent error redirects [link]
  • Validate emails against allowing and block lists for OAuth sign in flow [link]

Nhost Storage in Go

Nhost Storage was previously written in Node but has now been ported to Go. Going from Node to Go lowered our infrastructure footprint significantly (less CPU and RAM consumed) while also speeding up the performance.

We will have a comparison blog post between the Node and Go versions coming out soon.
