Rapid Application Development with AWS Amplify

By: Adrian Leung

Overview of this book

AWS Amplify is a modern toolkit that includes a command line interface (CLI); libraries for JS, iOS, and Android programming; UI component libraries for frameworks like React, Angular, and Vue.js for web development, and React Native and Flutter for mobile development. You'll begin by learning how to build AWS Amplify solutions with React and React Native with TypeScript from scratch, along with integrating it with existing solutions. This book will show you the fastest way to build a production-ready minimum viable product (MVP) within days instead of years. You'll also discover how to increase development speed without compromising on quality by adopting behavior-driven development (BDD) and Cypress for end-to-end test automation, as well as the Amplify build pipeline (DevOps or CI/CD pipeline) to ensure optimal quality throughout continuous test automation and continuous delivery. As you advance, you'll work with React to determine how to build progressive web apps (PWAs) with Amplify and React Native for cross-platform mobile apps. In addition to this, you'll find out how to set up a custom domain name for your new website and set up the AWS Amplify Admin UI for managing the content of your app effectively. By the end of this AWS book, you'll be able to build a full-stack AWS Amplify solution all by yourself.

Chapter 7: Setting Up an Amplify Pipeline

So far, we have made some significant progress with AWS Amplify. In this chapter, we will learn how to apply DevOps and even NoOps with the Amplify pipeline. DevOps or NoOps can help your development team deliver new features to production very quickly.

Some people would call DevOps a culture, a practice, an approach, a framework, or even a set of tools. Well, the fact is that all these names are correct and do not contradict each other. Because Devs and Ops are working more closely than ever before, there is definitely a culture change, especially with the AWS Amplify pipeline. It is a good practice to shorten the cycle time from build, test, and deployment to production. It is a better approach compared to manual deployment. It is a toolchain that helps you apply continuous integration, test automation, and deployment as easily as pushing a button. If you are using the Amplify pipeline, you might not even need to worry about Ops anymore...
