Package software.amazon.awscdk.services.amplify Description

AWS Amplify Construct Library

---

cfn-resources: Stable

All classes with the Cfn prefix in this module (CFN Resources) are always stable and safe to use.

cdk-constructs: Experimental

The APIs of higher level constructs in this module are experimental and under active development. They are subject to non-backward compatible changes or removal in any future version. These are not subject to the Semantic Versioning model and breaking changes will be announced in the release notes. This means that while you may use them, you may need to update your source code when upgrading to a newer version of this package.


The AWS Amplify Console provides a Git-based workflow for deploying and hosting fullstack serverless web applications. A fullstack serverless app consists of a backend built with cloud resources such as GraphQL or REST APIs, file and data storage, and a frontend built with single page application frameworks such as React, Angular, Vue, or Gatsby.

Setting up an app with branches, custom rules and a domain

To set up an Amplify Console app, define an App:

 import software.amazon.awscdk.services.codebuild.*;
 
 
 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "MyApp")
         .sourceCodeProvider(GitHubSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create()
                 .owner("<user>")
                 .repository("<repo>")
                 .oauthToken(SecretValue.secretsManager("my-github-token"))
                 .build())
         .buildSpec(BuildSpec.fromObjectToYaml(Map.of(
                 // Alternatively add a `amplify.yml` to the repo
                 "version", "1.0",
                 "frontend", Map.of(
                         "phases", Map.of(
                                 "preBuild", Map.of(
                                         "commands", List.of("yarn")),
                                 "build", Map.of(
                                         "commands", List.of("yarn build"))),
                         "artifacts", Map.of(
                                 "baseDirectory", "public",
                                 "files", -"**/*")))))
         .build();
 

To connect your App to GitLab, use the GitLabSourceCodeProvider:

 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "MyApp")
         .sourceCodeProvider(GitLabSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create()
                 .owner("<user>")
                 .repository("<repo>")
                 .oauthToken(SecretValue.secretsManager("my-gitlab-token"))
                 .build())
         .build();
 

To connect your App to CodeCommit, use the CodeCommitSourceCodeProvider:

 import software.amazon.awscdk.services.codecommit.*;
 
 
 Repository repository = Repository.Builder.create(this, "Repo")
         .repositoryName("my-repo")
         .build();
 
 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "App")
         .sourceCodeProvider(CodeCommitSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create().repository(repository).build())
         .build();
 

The IAM role associated with the App will automatically be granted the permission to pull the CodeCommit repository.

Add branches:

 App amplifyApp;
 
 
 Branch master = amplifyApp.addBranch("master"); // `id` will be used as repo branch name
 Branch dev = amplifyApp.addBranch("dev", BranchOptions.builder()
         .performanceMode(true)
         .build());
 dev.addEnvironment("STAGE", "dev");
 

Auto build and pull request preview are enabled by default.

Add custom rules for redirection:

 App amplifyApp;
 
 amplifyApp.addCustomRule(Map.of(
         "source", "/docs/specific-filename.html",
         "target", "/documents/different-filename.html",
         "status", RedirectStatus.TEMPORARY_REDIRECT));
 

When working with a single page application (SPA), use the CustomRule.SINGLE_PAGE_APPLICATION_REDIRECT to set up a 200 rewrite for all files to index.html except for the following file extensions: css, gif, ico, jpg, js, png, txt, svg, woff, ttf, map, json, webmanifest.

 App mySinglePageApp;
 
 
 mySinglePageApp.addCustomRule(CustomRule.SINGLE_PAGE_APPLICATION_REDIRECT);
 

Add a domain and map sub domains to branches:

 App amplifyApp;
 Branch master;
 Branch dev;
 
 
 Domain domain = amplifyApp.addDomain("example.com", DomainOptions.builder()
         .enableAutoSubdomain(true) // in case subdomains should be auto registered for branches
         .autoSubdomainCreationPatterns(List.of("*", "pr*"))
         .build());
 domain.mapRoot(master); // map master branch to domain root
 domain.mapSubDomain(master, "www");
 domain.mapSubDomain(dev);
 

Restricting access

Password protect the app with basic auth by specifying the basicAuth prop.

Use BasicAuth.fromCredentials when referencing an existing secret:

 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "MyApp")
         .sourceCodeProvider(GitHubSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create()
                 .owner("<user>")
                 .repository("<repo>")
                 .oauthToken(SecretValue.secretsManager("my-github-token"))
                 .build())
         .basicAuth(BasicAuth.fromCredentials("username", SecretValue.secretsManager("my-github-token")))
         .build();
 

Use BasicAuth.fromGeneratedPassword to generate a password in Secrets Manager:

 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "MyApp")
         .sourceCodeProvider(GitHubSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create()
                 .owner("<user>")
                 .repository("<repo>")
                 .oauthToken(SecretValue.secretsManager("my-github-token"))
                 .build())
         .basicAuth(BasicAuth.fromGeneratedPassword("username"))
         .build();
 

Basic auth can be added to specific branches:

 App amplifyApp;
 
 amplifyApp.addBranch("feature/next", BranchOptions.builder()
         .basicAuth(BasicAuth.fromGeneratedPassword("username"))
         .build());
 

Automatically creating and deleting branches

Use the autoBranchCreation and autoBranchDeletion props to control creation/deletion of branches:

 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "MyApp")
         .sourceCodeProvider(GitHubSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create()
                 .owner("<user>")
                 .repository("<repo>")
                 .oauthToken(SecretValue.secretsManager("my-github-token"))
                 .build())
         .autoBranchCreation(AutoBranchCreation.builder() // Automatically connect branches that match a pattern set
                 .patterns(List.of("feature/*", "test/*")).build())
         .autoBranchDeletion(true)
         .build();
 

Adding custom response headers

Use the customResponseHeaders prop to configure custom response headers for an Amplify app:

 App amplifyApp = App.Builder.create(this, "App")
         .sourceCodeProvider(GitHubSourceCodeProvider.Builder.create()
                 .owner("<user>")
                 .repository("<repo>")
                 .oauthToken(SecretValue.secretsManager("my-github-token"))
                 .build())
         .customResponseHeaders(List.of(CustomResponseHeader.builder()
                 .pattern("*.json")
                 .headers(Map.of(
                         "custom-header-name-1", "custom-header-value-1",
                         "custom-header-name-2", "custom-header-value-2"))
                 .build(), CustomResponseHeader.builder()
                 .pattern("/path/*")
                 .headers(Map.of(
                         "custom-header-name-1", "custom-header-value-2"))
                 .build()))
         .build();
 

Deploying Assets

sourceCodeProvider is optional; when this is not specified the Amplify app can be deployed to using .zip packages. The asset property can be used to deploy S3 assets to Amplify as part of the CDK:

 import software.amazon.awscdk.services.s3.assets.*;
 
 Asset asset;
 App amplifyApp;
 
 Branch branch = amplifyApp.addBranch("dev", BranchOptions.builder().asset(asset).build());
