Supabase (PostgresSQL) Image Upload


Hey folks, I’m looking for insights from those working with SQL data on how you manage images within your application.

My backend is on Supabase, with image storages. I’ve experimented with the image upload component in Glide, but it seems to exclusively upload to Glide’s storage.

Any suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have any insights here @DarrenHumphries ?

I’m not really sure the best way to handle this. There may be a way to do it with APIs but I don’t know what that would be.

Thanks @DarrenHumphries and @ThinhDinh for your input! Do you happen to know anyone else we could reach out to for additional insights?

Surely someone on this forum has ran into similar issue before.

@Darren_Murphy or @Robert_Petitto do either of you know how to do this? Bob, I feel like you had an example at some point on how to use Make to grab an image from a URL…but might have been someone else.

If you wanted to still use the image picker component, you could create an action that takes the glide image URL (and RowID), send it to make, use an HTTPmodule to download the image, upload the image to a database of your choosing, hopefully that returns a response containing an image URL, and finally use the glide API to override your glide URL with your native hosting URL.

Very similar to the allow users to upload a video to your YouTube channel tutorial I did a few years back.


What Bob said :point_up:

What a machine! :slightly_smiling_face:

Amazing workaround. Thank @Robert_Petitto!

Hopefully Glide will release something more native soon :smiley:
