Netlify Functions, MySQL & Gatsby


I wanted to know what databases Netlify functions can be used with (especially MySQL), and if I would be able to do CRUD operations through GatsbyJS?

Essentially, I would want to have forms that I can submit (using GatsbyJS), the submission of the forms would go through the Netlify API (Netlify functions), connect to my MySQL database, and perform the respective CRUD operation. I’m pretty new to Netlify, so I just want to make sure this is possible and all operations are supported.

we don’t have a guide for this specific use case, but the thread below:

might yield some useful practical guidance for you!

best of luck.
