After a successful Launch Week in September, we’re back for updates related to Postgres, Serverless Functions, Database UI, and more.
It’s now possible to install Postgres extensions for your database. We’ve added support for PostGIS, and we plan to add support for more Postgres extensions soon.
Here’s how you can activate PostGIS. First, connect to your database.
Then, run the following command to activate PostGIS.
create extension postgis;
Do you want a particular extension added to Nhost? Please let us know in this GitHub discussion.
All Serverless Functions are now running Node v16 (prev v14). This will take effect next time you make a deployment. This now means that Serverless Functions are deployed with the following options:
1024 MB memory (can be upgraded)
10 seconds timeout (can be upgraded)
6 MB request and response payload size limit
Learn more about Serverless Functions.
We've pushed a UI update making it impossible to change your production database schema IF your project is connected to a GitHub repository. This way, you will avoid accidentally changing the database schema in production and potentially messing up your migrations. We think this will help you sleep better at night.
We’ve improved the logs for Auth. The previous logs for Auth were very verbose and not very useful. The new log format is denser, showing only the most valuable information.

It's a great introduction to Nhost, and we highly recommend you watch it.

@MartinP460, one of our community members, has created an open source alternative to unsplash using Nhost. The source code is available on GitHub, and Martin has also written a detailed blog post about his process when developing Onsplash.
