Performance of Full List Repeating Groups

Suppose my DB has 1000 “things” in scope for this search.

If I set an RG to “full list” then “:filtered” to return first 10 items, is that as performant as using the “fixed number of cells” option showing 10 items?

I.e. does Bubble interpret the :filter correctly and only fetches the first 10 items, or does it still fetch 1000 items then only present the first 10?


If you need only the first 10 results, vertical scrolling will be better.

  1. Full lists are slow
  2. :filtered will make it more slow as it’s done client side.

You could do vertical scrolling and limit it to first 10 results using :items until
