2 days on the amalfi coast

We are hoping to tour amalfi and positano in one day. How doable is this? And what is the easiest way to get to positano from amalfi? Ferry?

Ferry is definitely the most pleasant way of getting from Positano to Amalfi. I would strongly suggest choosing that over a bus. Plus seeing both places from the water is an experience that should not be missed.

As for whether it is doable, that would depend on where you are starting your journey. Theoretically, it's definitely possible to see both towns in one day. If by "seeing" you mean visiting all the main landmarks and walking all the main streets, you probably need just 2-3 hours at most for either place. So yes, it's doable. It might feel a bit rushed, though, and may not allow for a long leisurely lunch, time on the beach, etc.

It’s doable. Ferry ride between the two is half an hour. Not sure where you are coming from or going to but keep in mind if using the ferries, they finish running around 6pm so dinner is not an option unless you return via land transportation.
