Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that its Amplify Studio visual development environment for web apps is now generally available.
Amplify Studio helps developers to build fully-customisable web apps on AWS with minimal coding. Until now, the solution has been in preview.
“Developers tell us that they want tools that help make them more productive when building on AWS without sacrificing the precision they need to deliver tailored experiences to their end-users,” said Ken Exner, Director of AWS Developer Tools at AWS.
“With AWS Amplify Studio, we are extending the same fast, flexible backend development experience that customers love when using AWS Amplify to the UI creation process, so they can build feature-rich web applications with minimal coding.”
When Amplify Studio was first announced in December 2021, AWS noted that it would be making the following improvements to its UI library before general availability:
- Ability to define event-based actions within Studio (e.g. on clicking a component, go to a specific page)
- Add search, pagination, and filtering on collections
- Ability to define S3 storage bindings (e.g. link an avatar to a user’s profile picture)
- More UI components (colour pickers, maps, avatar, file uploader)
Developers can now use Amplify Studio to build their UI using prebuilt components, incorporate data or capabilities from AWS, and even collaborate with UX designers through integration with the popular Figma tool—all without needing to write any code.
“AWS Amplify Studio is a game-changer for any developer building web applications on AWS because it enables greater productivity without compromising control throughout the application development process,” added Exner.
A number of AWS customers have found success with Amplify Studio. Among them is cloud and digital transformation consultancy firm CirrusHQ.
“We use AWS Amplify to help us create rapid application prototypes, test our hypotheses, iterate on the design, and quickly build and deploy web and mobile applications for our customers that address a variety of use cases,” commented John Walker, Head of Architecture at CirrusHQ.
“AWS Amplify Studio will enable us to achieve this with even greater efficiency, while empowering our developers to quickly create pixel-perfect UIs using Amplify Studio’s library of pre-built UI components, without the need for deep design expertise. This will allow us to deliver robust, feature-rich prototypes and finished applications that closely reflect the needs of our clients in a fraction of the time.”
AWS Amplify Studio is available from today in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific(Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo).
