Front-end designers and developers are excited about AWS Amplify Studio, which adds front-end UI development to AWS Amplify app hosting service. Announced on December 2, 2021 in (public preview), Amplify Studio accelerates UI development (with minimal coding) by automatically translating designs made in Figma to human-readable React UI component code. Within Amplify Studio, developers can visually connect UI components to app backend data supporting configuration and management capabilities.
