AWS Amplify announces command hooks to execute custom scripts when running Amplify CLI commands

With today’s launch, customers can execute custom scripts before, during, and after Amplify CLI commands (“amplify push”, “amplify api gql-compile”, and more). This allows you to extend Amplify’s best-practice defaults to meet your organization’s specific security guidelines and operational requirements. AWS Amplify CLI is a command line toolchain that helps frontend web and mobile developers create cloud backends and connect them to their app for common use cases. To create a command hook, customers place their bash shell scripts into the “amplify/hooks” folder with the associated Amplify CLI command as the script file name, such as “” or “”. Command hooks support bash scripts by-default but customers can extend it with their preferred scripting runtime.
