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 9: Setting Up a Custom Domain Name and the Amplify Admin UI

Welcome to Chapter 9, Setting Up a Custom Domain Name and the Amplify Admin UI – we've made it! It is time to publish your app on a website and then tell the world about it. In this chapter, we will show you how to purchase a domain name through AWS Route 53 and then hook that up to your Amplify app. AWS Amplify can connect to the domain name that you purchase through the AWS Route 53 service seamlessly. We will also show you how to connect the Amplify app with third-party DNS services such as GoDaddy. After that, we will show you how to set up the Admin UI in order to manage the content of the app. By doing this, you will be able to invite others to help you edit the content on your website. The Admin UI is like a traditional CMS that you can create, edit, and delete the content of a website or an app with. It is especially useful when you have dedicated team members to either create or moderate the content...
