Amplication is an open‑source development tool. It helps professional Node.js developers develop quality Node.js applications without spending time on repetitive coding tasks.
Amplication auto-generates backend apps built with TypeScript and Node.js, and a client built with React
Build database applications with:
- Manage data models visually or through CLI
- Auto-generated human-editable source code
- Node.js server built with Nest.js and Passport
- REST API and GraphQL for CRUD with relations, sorting, filtering, pagination
- Custom code generated app
- Admin UI built with React-Admin
- Role-based access control
- Docker and docker-compose integration
- Automatic push of the generated code to your GitHub repo
Watch this video for a quick recap of everything you get with Amplication.
Amplication is constructed from multiple packages. To initialize the local development environment, run
npm run setup:dev, it will install all the required dependencies, run the necessary scripts and init Docker-based Postgres server.
To set up manually Amplication local development environment, 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.
Define your data model and generate apps faster using Amplication Command Line Interface (CLI). Execute pre-defined scripts to create your app instantly.
Amplication Data Service Generator is the component that generates the 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.
Amplication is currently in Beta version. It means that we are still working on essential features like production-ready hosting, migrations, and stability to our console.
How does it affect you? Well...., it mostly doesn't.
Every app generated using Amplication platform contains popular, documented, secured, and supported production-ready open source components & packages. Your app is stable, scalable, and production-ready you can deploy and rely on. You can read more about the generated app and its stack here https://docs.amplication.com/docs/getting-started
