This guide will show you how to host a static site from a local Amplify project using Amplify hosting.

In this example you will be deploying a React app, but you can also use any of the following types of projects or frameworks:

  • Static HTML
  • Vue
  • Angular
  • Solid
  • Svelte

Create a new web app and change into the directory

npx create-react-app amplifyapp
cd amplifyapp

Initialize a new Amplify project

amplify init
# Follow the steps to give the project a name, environment name, and set the default text editor.
# Accept defaults for everything else and choose your AWS Profile.

Add hosting

amplify add hosting
? Select the plugin module to execute: Hosting with Amplify Console
? Choose a type: Manual Deployment

Deploy the app

Now, the app is ready to deploy. To do so, you can run the publish command.

amplify publish
