Amplication provides the following features:

  • Production-ready APIs
  • Data Model
  • Role Based Access Control
  • Microservice Support
  • Continuous Github Sync
  • TypeScript and Node.js Source Code
  • Plugin System
  • Monorepo or Polyrepo
  • Custom Code
  • Ready-to-deploy-app
  • Admin UI
  • Amplication console & CLI

Getting Started

You can get started with Amplication immediately on the Amplication Cloud.

Alternatively you can set up a local development environment.

See Amplication website or Amplication docs for more details.


Amplication Cloud (SaaS)

Launch Amplication from

Development Environment (Local)

System Requirements

💡 Before you begin, make sure you have all the below installed:

Initializing all the packages

Amplication is using a monorepo with multiple packages. To initialize all the packages on a local development environment, including running a docker image for the DB and seeding the DB.

  1. Execute the following commands in the project root folder:
npm install
npm run setup:dev

This will install all the required dependencies, run the necessary scripts and init a Docker-based Postgres server.

  1. Go to .../packages/amplication-server and execute the following command:
npm run start
  1. Go to .../packages/amplication-client and execute the following command:
npm run start

Setting Up Amplication Manually

You can use a manual step-by-step approach to set up Amplication in a local development environment. To do that, you should follow the following instructions for Setting Up Amplication Server, and Setting Up Amplication Client.

Setting up Amplication Server

Amplication Server is the main component of the platform that provides all the core functionality to design and create low-code applications. The server exposes a GraphQL API for all actions. The server is built with the following awesome open-source technologies: Node.js, NestJS, Prisma over PostgreSQL, GraphQL API, and many more...

Setting Up Amplication Client

Amplication Client is the front end of the platform that provides you with an easy-to-drive UI for building your next low-code application. The client is based on React, Apollo client, Primer components, React Material Web Components, Formik, and more.

Version 1.0.0

Amplication is currently in its version 1.0. This is the first major release of Amplication with enterprise-grade production readiness & scale. In this version, we have introduced multiple new features and enhanced the existing ones. The feature set is listed above in the README file.


Ask your questions and participate in discussions on Amplication-related and web-dev topics at Amplication Discord channel.
