Setup AWS Amplify

It is recommended to configure Amplify library at the entry point of application. Here we choose main.js

import Amplify from 'aws-amplify';
import { components } from 'aws-amplify-vue'; 
import aws_exports from './aws-exports'




new Vue({
  el: '#app',
  router: router,
  template: '<App/>',
  components: { 

We then install the AmplifyPlugin in the application's router/index.js file:

import { AmplifyPlugin } from 'aws-amplify-vue';


Vue.use(AmplifyPlugin, AmplifyModules);

This makes the Amplify library available throughout the application as a Vue Plugin.

Authentication Components

This sample uses three auth-related components from the aws-amplify-vue package:

  • Authenticator

    • allows new users to signup, signin, and complete verification/multifactor authentication steps.
    • included in the router as the default route that is shown when the user is not logged in.
  • SetMFA

    • included in the profile page
    • allows users to select their preferred MFA types
    • you can configure the MFA options that are dispayed in the SetMFA component by binding a mfaConfig object to the component like so:
      <amplify-set-mfa v-bind:mfaConfig="mfaConfig"></amplify-set-mfa>


    mfaConfig = { mfaTypes: ['SMS', 'TOTP', 'None'] }

Storage Components

In this sample, src/amplify package register a group of Amplify related components. Other than Auth components, there are two storage related components:

  • PhotoPicker
    • showcase usage of Amplify Storage on binary data uploads
  • S3Image
    • showcase usage of Amplify Storage on binary data display


This application uses verbose logging by default. You can change the log level by altering the line window.LOG_LEVEL = 'VERBOSE'; in App.vue.
