Amplication is constructed of multiple packages. To start working on Amplication follow the "Amplication Server" and "Amplication Client" installation instructions.
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...
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.
Amplication Data Service Generator is the component that generates the server-side code of apps built with Amplication. It generates the models, Prisma client, REST API, GraphQL, authentication and authorization filters, and more. This package is used internally by Amplication server.
To use this package as a library or as a CLI with other projects, follow the instructions on the package page.
Please note that Amplication is currently in alpha version. This means that any app data hosted on our cloud can get reset at any time. At this point if you want to use your app in a production environment, you'll need to download the app as a Docker container and deploy on your own cloud service.
