Geolocation with amp-list

Introduction

If you need more fine-grained geolocation support than provided by the amp-geo extension, you can implement geo-based features with geolocation logic on your backend and amp-list. This adds an additional XHR request but you can mitigate the negative UX effects with a skeleton layout in the placeholder attribute.

Setup

Import the amp-list component ...

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

... and the amp-mustache component

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

Geo-based search results

amp-list makes a request to a server backend which does IP-based geolocation and returns relevant search results. For this demo, it calls an API to get nearby cities. The backend returns JSON results which amp-list renders with amp-mustache. The backend makes two remote API calls (and also adds 500ms of simulated delay); to mitigate the UX effects of this delay we use amp-list's placeholder to lay out a skeleton.

Since we need to have an initial fixed-size for amp-list we manually calculate that each card is 100 + 15px margin and the title is 16px + 20px margin:

16px + 20px + (5 * (100 + 15px)) = 611px

The placeholder list items largely use CSS to draw the skeleton elements as described in CSS-Tricks. The skeleton includes a tiny blurred map to add to the realism, and that map is also used while <amp-img> loads the actual images to prevent a flash when the placeholder is removed.
