Heard - An enterprise React Native Social Messaging App

Built with AWS AppSync & AWS Amplify

Todo

  • Add subscriptions for real time updates / messages in feed
  • Add user profile section
  • Add "follower" tab

Getting Started

Cloning the project & creating the services

  1. Clone the project
git clone 
  1. Install dependencies
yarn
# or
npm install
  1. Create new AWS Mobile Project
awsmobile init
  1. Add Authentication service
awsmobile user-signin enable
  1. Push configuration to AWS Mobile Hub
awsmobile push

Configuring the AWS AppSync API

  1. Create & configure a new AppSync API
  • Visit the AWS AppSync console and create a new API.
  • In Settings, set the Auth mode to Amazon Cognito User Pool and choose the user pool created in the initial service creation.
  1. In index.js on line 11, change <YOURAPPSYNCENDPOINT> to the endpoint given to you when you created the AppSync API.

  2. Attach the following Schema:

input CreateFollowingInput {
	id: ID
	followerId: ID!
	followingId: ID!
}

input CreateMessageInput {
	messageId: ID
	authorId: ID!
	createdAt: String

}
  1. Create the following DynamoDB Tables
  • HeardMessageTable
  • HeardFollowingTable
  • HeardUserTable
  1. Add the following indexes:
  • In HeardMessageTable, create an authorId-index with the authorId as the primary / partition key.
  • In HeardFollowingTable, create a followingId-index with the followingId as the primary / partition key.
  • In HeardFollowingTable, create a followerId-index with the followerId as the primary / partition key.

To create an index, click on the table you would like to create an index on, click on the indexes tab, then click Create Index .

  1. Create the following resolvers:
