Earlier this day, I read that Strapi is dropping its support for MongoDB. I was a bit bummed at first, but their reasoning was good and I moved from MongoDB Atlas to CloudSQL.
From that point on my day got so much better: Now my strapi backend is so much faster than before! I cannot believe, that I just got to migrate to SQL. Should have done this a long time before.
All operations are literally 2-3 times as fast as before. Thank you @strapiDevelopers for forcing me to migrate :D
Fuck! I frkn hate supabase right now.
Row Level Security seems like a nice feature but it does not fckn work for me.
Background: I am currently working with a DB that has websocket functionality ("notify a client on insert/etc."). However, you do have to whitelist tables in order to use them with sockets.
I wanted to optimize my code and didn't want to mess with my coworkers dev-data, therefore I duplicated the table. After improving some small things I noticed that the interface does not change with new socket data. I have spent the last hour or so trying to figure out where I broke it.
I just realized that I forgot to whitelist that duplicated table 😐 Most relieving moment today 😅
Bonus side effect: The code is much cleaner now since I refactored a lot of the realtime-logic in order to understand it/fix the bug.3
Picking up the work on an existing Wordpress site.
When a non-tech person started a WP page and you as a software engineer should "improve it a little bit, since [the client] already did most of the work"...
By now - unless I really cannot get around it - I refuse to start working extensively on existing wordpress sites.
