Usage

To get started with Amplication, the hosted version of the product can be used. You can get started immediately at app.amplication.com. After the login page, you will be guided through creating your first service. The website provides an overview of the application, additional information on the product and guides can be found in the docs.

Tutorials

Development

Alternatively, instead of using the hosted version of the product, Amplication can be run locally for code generation purposes or contributions - if so, please refer to our contributing section.

Pre-requisites
To be able to start development on Amplication, make sure that you have the following prerequisites installed:

  • Node.js
  • Docker
  • Git
Running Amplication

Note It is also possible to start development with GitHub Codespaces, when navigating to < > Code, select Codespaces instead of Local. Click on either the +-sign or the Create codespace on master-button.

Amplication is using a monorepo architecture - powered by Nx Workspaces - where multiple applications and libraries exist in a single repository. To setup a local development environment the following steps can be followed:

BEFORE you run the following steps make sure:

  1. You have typescript installed locally on you machine npm install -g typescript

  2. You are using a supported node version (check engines node in the package.json)

  3. You are using a supported npm version (check engines npm in the package.json)

  4. You have docker installed and running on your machine

  5. Clone the repository and install dependencies:

git clone https://github.com/amplication/amplication.git && cd amplication && npm install
  1. Run the setup script, which takes care of installing dependencies, building packages, and setting up the workspace:
npm run setup:dev
  1. Option 1: Running the required infrastructure - view infrastructure component logs
npm run docker:dev
  1. Option 2: Running the required infrastructure - run the infrastructure components in background
npm run docker:dev -- -d
  1. Apply database migrations
npm run db:migrate:deploy
  1. To start developing, run one or more of the applications available under serve:[application] scripts of the package.json.
# running the server component
npm run serve:server

# running the client component
npm run serve:client

# running the data-service-generator component
npm run serve:dsg

# running the git-sync-manager component
npm run serve:git

# running the plugin-api component
npm run serve:plugins

Note In order to run the Amplication client properly, both the client and server need to be started by the npm run serve:[application] command, as well as an additional component for development on a specific component.

The development environment should now be set up. Additional information on the different application components can be found under packages/[application]/README.md file. Happy hacking! 👾
