AWS Amplify

AWS Amplify is an open source JavaScript library provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that enables developers to build applications with cloud services on web or mobile platforms.

AWS Amplify aims to both enable apps to scale via cloud services and accelerate them to production.

Under Apache License, a developer can use the AWS Amplify declarative API to integrate cloud-based services into their applications. Some of these services, which support automatic and manual setup options, include user authentication, content management, push notifications and analytics.

AWS designed Amplify to be "open and pluggable" with other back-end components and services. In addition, Amplify includes extensions for JavaScript-based front-end development platforms, such as Angular, Ionic and React Native, and also offers localization for multiple human languages.

On GitHub, AWS provides documentation, an API reference and other materials to help developers get started.
