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.

So far, we have built a simple app that can let people create posts with text and images. Now, it is time to tell the world about our accomplishments. The best way to do that is to set up an easy-to-remember domain name that shows the meaning of your product itself. AWS offers a wide range of products that can help you take your business and product from zero to one. This includes Route 53, which lets you buy a domain name directly through AWS, without shopping for your domain name on a different platform. The good thing about choosing a single platform that provides the entire ecosystem of your digital product is that you can keep all your bills in a single invoice, instead of on multiple invoices. Let's go to the AWS Amplify Console:

  1. First, go to the Route 53 dashboard ( Then, enter the domain name that you want to purchase and hit the Check button to see if the domain is still up for...
