Loading data from the DB

In this page we learn how to load data from the Supabase database and display it in our Next.js application.

Now that our database supports the data we need, we can start loading it into our application. We will use the @makerkit/data-loader-supabase-nextjs package to load data from the Supabase database.

Please check the documentation for the @makerkit/data-loader-supabase-nextjs package to learn more about how to use it.

This nifty package allows us to load data from the Supabase database and display it in our server components with support for pagination.

In the snippet below, we will

  1. Load the user's workspace data from the database. This allows us to get the user's account ID without further round-trips because the workspace is loaded by the user layout.
  2. Load the user's tasks from the database.
  3. Display the tasks in a table.
  4. Use a search input to filter the tasks by title.

Let's take a look at the code:

import { use } from 'react'; import { ServerDataLoader } from '@makerkit/data-loader-supabase-nextjs'; import { getSupabaseServerComponentClient } from '@kit/supabase/server-component-client'; import { Button } from '@kit/ui/button'; import { Heading } from '@kit/ui/heading'; import { If } from '@kit/ui/if'; import { Input } from '@kit/ui/input'; import { PageBody } from '@kit/ui/page'; import { Trans } from '@kit/ui/trans'; import { createI18nServerInstance } from '~/lib/i18n/i18n.server'; import { withI18n } from '~/lib/i18n/with-i18n'; import { TasksTable } from './_components/tasks-table'; import { UserAccountHeader } from './_components/user-account-header'; import { loadUserWorkspace } from './_lib/server/load-user-workspace'; interface SearchParams { page?: string; query?: string; } export const generateMetadata = async () => { const i18n = await createI18nServerInstance(); const title = i18n.t('account:homePage'); return { title, }; }; function UserHomePage(props: { searchParams: SearchParams }) { const client = getSupabaseServerComponentClient(); const { user } = use(loadUserWorkspace()); const page = parseInt(props.searchParams.page ?? '1', 10); const query = props.searchParams.query ?? ''; return ( <> <UserAccountHeader title={<Trans i18nKey={'common:homeTabLabel'} />} description={<Trans i18nKey={'common:homeTabDescription'} />} /> <PageBody className={'space-y-4'}> <div className={'flex items-center justify-between'}> <div> <Heading level={4}> <Trans i18nKey={'tasks:tasksTabLabel'} defaults={'Tasks'} /> </Heading> </div> <div className={'flex items-center space-x-2'}> <form className={'w-full'}> <Input name={'query'} defaultValue={query} className={'w-full lg:w-[18rem]'} placeholder={'Search tasks'} /> </form> </div> </div> <ServerDataLoader client={client} table={'tasks'} page={page} where={{ account_id: { eq: user.id, }, title: { textSearch: query ? `%${query}%` : undefined, }, }} > {(props) => { return ( <div className={'flex flex-col space-y-8'}> <If condition={props.count === 0 && query}> <div className={'flex flex-col space-y-2.5'}> <p> <Trans i18nKey={'tasks:noTasksFound'} values={{ query }} /> </p> <form> <input type="hidden" name={'query'} value={''} /> <Button variant={'outline'} size={'sm'}> <Trans i18nKey={'tasks:clearSearch'} /> </Button> </form> </div> </If> <TasksTable {...props} /> </div> ); }} </ServerDataLoader> </PageBody> </> ); } export default withI18n(UserHomePage);

Let's break this down a bit, shall we:

  1. We import the necessary components and functions.
  2. We define the SearchParams interface to type the search parameters.
  3. We define the generateMetadata function to generate the page metadata.
  4. We define the UserHomePage component that loads the user's workspace and tasks from the database.
  5. We define the ServerDataLoader component that loads the tasks from the database.
  6. We render the tasks in a table and provide a search input to filter the tasks by title.
  7. We export the UserHomePage component with the withI18n HOC. This helps bootstrap the i18n instance for the component.

Tasks Table

Now, let's show the tasks table component:

'use client'; import Link from 'next/link'; import { ColumnDef } from '@tanstack/react-table'; import { Pencil } from 'lucide-react'; import { useTranslation } from 'react-i18next'; import { Button } from '@kit/ui/button'; import { DataTable } from '@kit/ui/enhanced-data-table'; import { Database } from '~/lib/database.types'; type Task = Database['public']['Tables']['tasks']['Row']; export function TasksTable(props: { data: Task[]; page: number; pageSize: number; pageCount: number; }) { const columns = useGetColumns(); return ( <div> <DataTable {...props} columns={columns} /> </div> ); } function useGetColumns(): ColumnDef<Task>[] { const { t } = useTranslation('tasks'); return [ { header: t('task'), cell: ({ row }) => ( <Link className={'hover:underline'} href={`/home/tasks/${row.original.id}`} > {row.original.title} </Link> ), }, { header: t('createdAt'), accessorKey: 'created_at', }, { header: t('updatedAt'), accessorKey: 'updated_at', }, { header: '', id: 'actions', cell: ({ row }) => { const id = row.original.id; return ( <div className={'flex justify-end space-x-2'}> <Link href={`/home/tasks/${id}`}> <Button variant={'ghost'} size={'icon'}> <Pencil className={'h-4'} /> </Button> </Link> </div> ); }, }, ]; }

In this snippet, we define the TasksTable component that renders the tasks in a table. We use the DataTable component from the @kit/ui/enhanced-data-table package to render the table.

We also define the useGetColumns hook that returns the columns for the table. We use the useTranslation hook from the react-i18next package to translate the column headers.
