Contributions to Web Platform Interoperability (First Half of 2020)
Web developers continue to face challenges with web interoperability issues and a lack of implementation of important features. As an open-source project, the AMP Project  can help represent developers and aid in addressing these challenges.  In the last few years, we have partnered with Igalia to collaborate on helping advance predictability and interoperability among browsers.  Standards and the degree of interoperability that we want can be a long process.  New features frequently require experimentation to get things rolling, course corrections along the way and then, ultimately as more implementations and users begin exploring the space, doing really interesting things and finding issues at the edges we continue to advance interoperability. Both AMP and Igalia are very pleased to have been able to play important roles at all stages of this process and help drive things forward.  During the first half of this year, here’s what we’ve been up to… Default Aspect Ratio of Images In our previous blog post we mentioned our experiment to implement the intrinsic size attribute in WebKit. Although this was a useful prototype for standardization discussions, at the end there was a consensus to switch to an alternative approach. This new approach addresses the same use case without the need of a new attribute. The idea is pretty...

AMP as a Service: 2020 Roadmap
This blog is part of a series that we are starting to share AMP’s roadmap with the wider web community. We first unveiled our vision of AMP as a Service on a spring morning in Tokyo at AMP Conf 2019, our flagship conference. We talked about how engineering teams can accelerate their workflow by using AMP. So what has changed since the last time we talked about AMP as a Service? And what does the future look like for AMP? In today’s post we’d like to provide some further insight into our 2020 roadmap. What is AMP as a Service? AMP as a Service is our focus on making AMP the easiest way for developers to create high quality web experiences without being burdened by issues such as performance and infrastructure. AMP’s “evergreen” release schedule also means that these AMP experiences, once created, improve over time by becoming faster and more delightful without AMP users investing additional engineering resources.  Last month, Google announced the Core Web Vitals program to shine a spotlight on a set of real-user performance and experience metrics that should be measured by all site owners. The AMP Project shared that a majority of AMP page loads already meet the thresholds set out in Core Web Vitals, which are a key component of a newly-announced Google Search page experience ranking signal. This means that AMP is really living up to its goal of being a...

Forbes serves up shots of rich, visual content with Web Stories
Editor’s note: We’re starting a series of blogposts on Web Stories, a content format that lets publishers and other content creators easily produce fast-loading, full-screen experiences that bring together visual narratives, engaging animations, and tappable interactions that belong entirely to them. For this first entry of the series, we sat down with Forbes Design Director Alicia Hallett-Chan to learn about her Web Stories publishing experience. Forbes magazine is best known for its coverage of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful, most successful business people. The traditional and online publisher reports on innovation, leadership, money, business, and lifestyle. Recently, Forbes.com began working with Google to add Web Stories to their content mix.

Looking back at five years of AMP
Update 6/26/2020: Since this blog post went live, AMP has officially graduated from the OpenJS Foundation Incubation Program. See the news here. This summer marks five years since the first line of code for AMP was written. The project has evolved, impacted by things like the dynamic nature of the web, changing user expectations, ideas and code contributions from the ecosystem, and more. We’ve listened carefully to publishers and the developer community, and have constantly iterated AMP in response to their feedback. With the support of the AMP community, we have aimed to live up to our mission of providing a content format that puts users first, and in doing so, helps support the success of every publisher, merchant, and advertiser on the web. With a half-decade of experience and many insights gained, we’re looking back at the origins of the project, lessons learned along the way, and what might lie in the future for AMP. The beginnings: A swiftly changing web and a fortuitous conversation Before I was even a software engineer at Google, the web was beginning to grapple with its future, famously captured by Wired in its “The Web Is Dead” feature. Today, the web has evolved and continues to thrive, but in 2010 this article held more than a grain of truth. With the rise of mobile devices, apps and social platforms, many industries, news publishers in particular,...
AMP Camp: Cross-origin user state in AMP
tl;dr: This article will teach you how to track user actions between your domain and AMP Caches. Welcome to the latest in our series of posts about AMP Camp, our demo that shows how to create an interactive site with AMP! In this series, we’ll discuss the techniques and tools we used in creating it, as well as best practices we developed. If you’re interested in creating an interactive site with AMP, we hope you’ll learn something! In the previous post, we talked about how to use templates on both the client and your server. In this post, we’ll discuss best practices for tracking user state between your origin and AMP caches. User state and AMP caches If a user visits your site on an AMP cache and again on your own domain, it’s important to recognize that both visitors are the same person. This can take a little work. Fortunately, there’s a solution! Imagine this: you run BestClips, a site that sells the most effective paper clips in the world. Each clip can hold up to 50 sheets of paper, and they’re completely made from 100% biodegradable soybeans! Since you want users to see your clips as fast as possible, you built your product pages with AMP. You serve AMP pages from your domain, bestclips.com. And when web spiders like Google’s and Bing’s discover these AMP pages, they get stored in AMP caches. So when...
