Development Environment (Local)
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.
- 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.
- Go to
.../packages/amplication-serverand execute the following command:
npm run start
- Go to
.../packages/amplication-clientand 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.
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 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.
