AWS Amplify Operation, Benefits, Features & Tools

Introduction

 
Amazon Amplify is the control center of full-stack mobile and web app development in Amazon web services. Amplify provides the two main services for application deployments, one is hosting and another one is Admin UI. AWS amplify makes work easier for mobile & web app developers to deploy & configure our backend in cloud servers.
 
In my previous article, I briefly gave an  “Introduction to Amazon Amplify”. In this article, I will explain Amplify's benefits, features & tools.
 
 

Benefits of Amazon Amplify

 
Configure Backends Easy & Fast
 
You can use the Amazon Amplify Admin UI and CLIs workflows to set up scalable backends with many use cases like authentication, storage, and data.
 
Seamlessly connect frontends
 
Amplify libraries easily connect your web and mobile apps with existing AWS resources using few lines of code.
 
Deploy in a few clicks
 
Amazon amplifies consoles to our static websites and single-page apps with a git-based workflow. It is easy and simply connects your repository.
 
Easily manage Content
 
Amplify admin UI to provide non-developers with administrative access to manage data without an Amazon web services account.
 

How does AWS Amplify work?

 
AWS Amplify is developed with three 3 beautiful steps for easily developing our web & mobile with AWS Amplify.
  • Develop
  • Deliver
  • Manage
Develop
 
In the first stage, wedevelop our application to configure our app backend using Amazon Amplify Admin UI or CLI to create your own AWS backend. Next we use the Amplify libraries to connect our app to amplify cloud backend, finally integrate Amplify UI components with our application.
 
Deliver
 
In the second stage, we deliver our application using Git repository or by uploading files from amplifying console, next we configure build settings for front end & backend from amplify console and finally we will deploy our app from Amplify to a globally available CDN (Content Delivery Network)
 
Manage
 
In the final stage, we manage our developed & delivered app content. You can manage the content by inviting team members to give access to amplify admin UI, next manage users to create or edit user groups, update user properties and auto verifies signups, and more, finally manage content to upload or update existing content using a text editor.
 

AWS Amplify Features & Tools

 
AWS Amplify provides many features for mobile & web app developers. These features make workflow easier for developers.
 
Authentication
 
Amplify authentication features give quick secure authentication flows with a fully managed user directory. Amplify auth has built-in authorization capabilities for controlling what users have access to in our apps.
 
Amplify Auth supports both web & mobile front-end libraries like react, VueJs, JavaScript, iOS, Android & flutter.
 
DataStore
 
Amplify datastore is an on-device storage engine. That storage engine synchronizes data between our mobile and web apps and our database in AWS cloud. It helps you build real-time and offline apps faster.
 
Amplify Datastore supports both web & mobile front-end libraries like react, VueJs, JavaScript, iOS, Android & flutter.
 
Hosting
 
AWS Amplify offers a fully managed service for deploying and hosting static web applications globally, served via amazon’s reliable content delivery network with hundreds of points of presence globally with CI/CD workflows that accelerate your app release.
 
Amplify hosting comes with many features including continuous workflows, pull request reviews, one-click custom domain setup, monitoring, instant automatic deployments, and password protection.
 
Predictions
 
Give more power to your application with Ai/ML features by using predictions. Amplify prediction easily achieves use cases like text translation, speech generation from text, entity recognition in the image, interpretation of the text, and transcribing the text. Amplify predictions are powered by Amazon Machine Learning services such as Amazon Sage Maker.
