THE AWS GENERAL RELEASE OF AMPLIFY FLUTTER

The Amazon Web Service has announced that the Amplify Flutter is now generally available in a way to help make flutter apps easier and more accessible. According to Martin Beeby, the principal advocate for Amazon Web Services, “AWS Amplify is a set of tools and services for building secure, scalable mobile and web applications.” The service supports cross-platforms like iOS, Android, and JavaScript, and is right now the quickest tool to construct apps on mobile, web, and desktop with a single code base.

The Amplify Flutter was released last year in a preview version and now became fully available in an official launch. The official launch came with new features, that were not on the preview version, like new APIs, with GraphQL API and REST APIs, the Amplify DataStore that will allow developers to work with cross-user data, and the Hosted UI with a streamlined way to add authentication pages on the apps.

The Amplify Flutter is the conjunction of the AWS Amplify and the Flutter, bringing together the Flutter ecosystem and the power of the AWS for the customers that have already invested it in the past.

A DEEPER LOOK INTO THE NEW FEATURES

The preview version of the Amplify Flutter in August 2020 did not come with the three new features introduced with the general release. They were developed to facilitate the process of building incredible Flutter apps.

The first feature is the addition of a GraphQL API with GraphQL API and REST APIs backed by the AWS AppSync.

Second, was the Amplify DataStore that gives the developers the possibility to use a programming model to clout shared and distributed data without needing to write additional code for online and offline scenarios. So they will be cross-user data but as simple as local-only data.

And the third feature was the Hosted UI that allows the implementation of authentication pages in apps, that works with the Amazon Cognito and other social media that requires social identity, like Facebook, Google and Amazon. This way, it’s possible to add a login page on the app without needing to embed the SDK for Cognito or a social provider.
