AWS Amplify’s GraphQL API capabilities now available as AWS CDK construct

AWS Amplify announces an AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) construct for building GraphQL APIs backed by data sources such as Amazon DynamoDB tables or AWS Lambda functions using a single GraphQL schema definition. Launching an API for application frontends requires developers to author thousands of lines of repetitive, undifferentiated code to build and wire together API endpoints, custom business logic, and data sources. AWS Amplify removes this heavy-lifting by allowing developers to define their application data model in a single definition file and automatically generate the required AWS cloud resources to support common API operations like create, update, list, read, subscribe, and delete for their data sources. Today, we’re extending this capability, previously only available using the Amplify CLI to AWS CDK.
