Can you elaborate on Amplify? Is it really that good? It didn't take me terribly long to set up gitlab-ci with ECS and later Fargate; both of these feel more appropriate for web-serving apps.

I may see it in a full-JS app, but I still can't find a good fit for a JS-based backend. I've recently been exploring alternatives to Django for API backends and seriously considering a JS-based framework. I have yet to find one that is all three of: good, simple, in typescript. TypeORM looks excellent for the ORM side but there's still the matter of writing APIs; anything I've looked at (Express, Koa…) is atrociously repetitive compared to Django REST Framework -- NestJS is the best I've found, and it's still miles away.
