Amazon Amplify Adds Flutter And Vue Support

Amazon Amplify, the open source library for interacting with cloud services that use JavaScript applications, now has support for Flutter and Vue 3.

The Amplify open-source client libraries provide interfaces across a range of cloud powered operations that developers of mobile and web apps can use to interact with their backends. The libraries are powered by the AWS cloud. Amplify supports iOS, Android, and JavaScript (web and React Native) and Amazon says is the quickest and easiest way to build applications powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).


Flutter is Google's open source mobile UI framework for crafting  native interfaces on iOS and Android. It is a combination of Google's Dart programming language and a runtime environment that is referred to as an app engine in Flutter.

Vue.js is a small, flexible JavaScript library for building interactive web applications. The developers say it offers simplicity, performance, and flexibility.  Amplify already supported earlier releases of Vue through the Amplify JavaScript library which offers modularization to reduce bundle size. The improved support for Vue in Amplify adds support for version 3 of Vue JS to accompany existing Vue support.

The Flutter support in Amplify was first shown in a developer preview last year, and has now been made generally available. The original developer preview supported three categories - Auth, Storage and Analytics. Auth provides an interface for authenticating a user, storage offers an interface for managing user content for your app in public, protected, or private storage buckets, and Analytics can be used to collect tracking data for authenticated or unauthenticated users in Amazon Pinpoint. The GA version of Amplify Flutter adds a GraphQL API backed by AWS AppSync, along with REST APIs and handlers using Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda. It also adds Amplify DataStore, which provides a programming model for using shared and distributed data without writing additional code. 

The final improvement is Hosted UI, a customizable OAuth 2.0 flow that can be used to launch a login screen without embedding the SDK for Cognito or a social provider in your application. Hosted UI works with Amazon Cognito and other social identity providers such as Facebook, Google and Amazon.
