AWS Amplify is a service to deploy your full-stack web and mobile applications. Initially introduced by AWS in November of 2018. AWS Amplify is great for Continuous Deployment (CD/CI) operations with your application. This blog post takes you through a simple demonstration of how to work with AWS Amplify and handle all application deployments. This is an attempt to answer your question such as “How do I deploy AWS amplify?”

Auto Detecting your App Settings

One of the main features of Amplify is how once you connect your code repository, it will auto-detect the tech stack of the application.


Add Environment Variables

If there are any Environment Variables that are hosted in your application, you can then add them here. AWS Amplify makes sure that these variables are then securely inserted in your application code wherever required.

For the purpose of this demo, we will not add any environment variables. Let’s click on next to continue.
