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.

  1. Pick a font that you like from, and then we will use it as the font of our project:

    Figure 3.8 – Google Fonts

    As you can see, we have over 1,000 options here to choose from; let's pick something that you like and write down the name of it.

  2. In this example, we picked something that sounds cool – Great Vibes – but is not really readable for the users as an experiment to see how it looks with our app:

    Figure 3.9 – Google Fonts – Great Vibes

  3. Now open the App.css file and enter the following code block at the top of the file:
    @import url('');
  4. The CSS now...
