Flutter support in AWS Amplify is now generally available (GA). Amplify is a set of tools and services that help frontend web and mobile developers build secure, scalable, full-stack applications. Flutter is an open-source UI software development kit created by Google for developing applications for Android and iOS from a single codebase. Amplify Flutter brings together Amplify and Flutter. It is designed for developers who have invested in the Flutter ecosystem and now want to take advantage of the power of AWS. You can use the Amplify Flutter libraries with Amplify-created backends, as well as existing AWS backends.
Compared to the initial Developer Preview, the GA release adds Data, API, and Auth capabilities. Amplify DataStore, now supported in Amplify Flutter, provides a local programming model that makes working with distributed, cross-user data as simple as working with local-only data. No additional code is required for offline and online scenarios. Amplify Flutter’s new API capabilities provide clients for making signed HTTP requests to both GraphQL and REST endpoints. Finally, today’s GA release adds support for authenticating app users using Hosted UI. Hosted UI is a customizable OAuth 2.0 flow that allows developers to launch a login screen without embedding the SDK for Cognito or a social provider—such as Facebook, Google, and Amazon—in your application.
