AWS Amplify vs AWS Shell: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Amplify as "JavaScript Open Source Library with React, React Native Extensions". A JavaScript library for frontend and mobile developers building cloud-enabled applications. The library is a declarative interface across different categories of operations in order to make common tasks easier to add into your application. The default implementation works with Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources but is designed to be open and pluggable for usage with other cloud services that wish to provide an implementation or custom backends. On the other hand, AWS Shell is detailed as "An integrated shell for working with the AWS CLI (by AWS)". The AWS Command Line Interface is a unified tool to manage your AWS services.
