Housing

Introduction

This sample showcases how to build a housing page in AMP HTML. Explore how to use amp components, like amp-carousel, form and amp-list to create a housing page.

Setup

We use amp-carousel to show house images.

<script async custom-element="amp-carousel" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-carousel-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-accordion to hide and show additional data about an house product.

<script async custom-element="amp-accordion" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-accordion-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-list to show a list of properties.

<script async custom-element="amp-list" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-list-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-mustache as a format template for amp-list.

<script async custom-template="amp-mustache" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-mustache-0.2.js"></script>

We use amp-social-share for adding platform sharing buttons.

<script async custom-element="amp-social-share" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-social-share-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-iframe to embed a map of the house location.

<script async custom-element="amp-iframe" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-iframe-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-form to implement a mortgage calculator.

<script async custom-element="amp-form" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-form-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-fit-text to fit the title of the house page to the page.

<script async custom-element="amp-fit-text" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-fit-text-0.1.js"></script>

We use amp-analytics to track page users.

<script async custom-element="amp-analytics" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-analytics-0.1.js"></script>

Price

amp-fit-text can be used to fit the text to the available space. It works well for titles that vary not too much in length.

Cosy House in Central London

£430,000

London SW1A 1AA

<div>
  <h1>
    <amp-fit-text class="price-heading"
      width="300"
      height="45"
      layout="responsive"
      max-font-size="45">
      Cosy House in Central London
    </amp-fit-text>
  </h1>
  <div class="price-description">£430,000</div>
  <p class="housing-description">London SW1A 1AA</p>
</div>

The amp-carousel works very well for housing image galleries. Learn more about amp-carousel here.

<amp-carousel class="image-gallery"
  width="512"
  height="384"
  layout="responsive"
  type="slides">
  <amp-img src="/static/samples/img/buckingham_palace_building_1280x960.jpg"
    layout="fill"
    alt="Buckingham Palace"
    attribution="https://pixabay.com"></amp-img>
  <amp-img src="/static/samples/img/buckingham_palace_entrance_1280x853.jpg"
    layout="fill"
    alt="Buckingham Palace entrance"
    attribution="https://pixabay.com"></amp-img>
</amp-carousel>

Detail request section

These buttons are used for requesting details on the property.

Do you like this property?
<div class="contact-section">
  <div> Do you like this property?</div>
  <div class="contact">
    <a href="tel:012 3456789">Call agent</a>
    <a href="mailto:someone@example.com">Email agent</a>
  </div>
</div>

Social

The Social Share extension provides a common interface for share buttons. Learn more about amp-social-share here.

<p class="social-share">
  <amp-social-share type="twitter"
    width="60"
    height="44"></amp-social-share>

Collapsibles/Accordion

User analytics

Analytics must be configured in the body. Here we use Google Analytics to track pageviews.

<amp-analytics type="googleanalytics">
  <script type="application/json">
    {
      "vars": {
        "account": "UA-73836974-1"
      },
      "triggers": {
        "default pageview": {
          "on": "visible",
          "request": "pageview",
          "vars": {
            "title": "Housing"
          }
        }
      }
    }
  </script>
</amp-analytics>
