Introduction

This is a sample template for a news article in AMP. It demonstrates the usage of AMP components which works well in news articles. Examples include social sharing, image galleries, personalized content, ads, and more.

Additionally used AMP components must be imported in the header. Import amp-carousel to create a list of auto advancing promotions.

Use the amp-sidebar component to give customers the chance to quickly jump to any of your product categories

<amp-sidebar id="drawermenu"
  layout="nodisplay">
  <a href="/documentation/examples/e-commerce/product_browse_page">Products</a>
  <hr>
  <a href="#">Fruit</a>
  <a href="#">Vegetable</a>
  <a href="#">More</a>
</amp-sidebar>

AMP supports forms, which means you can directly integrate a product search into your AMPs. Here we implemented autosuggest, try searching for "Apple" and you should be able to select "Apple". Take a look at autosuggest sample for more details how autosuggest is implemented.

AMP doesn't support custom Javascript, but you can use CSS3 animations to enrich your page. The expanding text field when the search box is focused is implemented with CSS only.

A hero slider

The amp-carousel component can be used to quickly create full-bleed, auto-advancing slideshows showcasing your latest promotions. We

use the amp-fit-text component for the slide headers to automatically size the text to fit into the carousel.

<amp-carousel id="hero-images"
  width="1024"
  height="480"
  layout="responsive"
  type="slides"
  autoplay>
  <a href="#">
    <amp-img src="/static/samples/img/product_hero1_1024x683.jpg"
      layout="fill"
      alt="product hero 1"
      attribution="visualhunt"></amp-img>

    <amp-fit-text class="caption"
      width="300"
      height="200"
      layout="responsive"
      max-font-size="36">
      The 10 best Apples
    </amp-fit-text>
  </a>
  <a href="#">
    <amp-img src="/static/samples/img/product_hero2_1024x683.jpg"
      layout="fill"
      alt="product hero 2"
      attribution="visualhunt"></amp-img>
    <amp-fit-text class="caption"
      width="300"
      height="200"
      layout="responsive"
      max-font-size="36">
      So much orange!
    </amp-fit-text>
  </a>
  <a href="#">
    <amp-img src="/static/samples/img/product_hero3_1024x683.jpg"
      layout="fill"
      alt="product hero 3"
      attribution="visualhunt"></amp-img>
    <amp-fit-text class="caption"
      width="300"
      height="200"
      layout="responsive"
      max-font-size="36">
      So healthy!
    </amp-fit-text>
  </a>
</amp-carousel>

Products configuration

The initial state and helper variables for the products are configured by amp-state.

<amp-state id="products">
  <script type="application/json">
    {
      "sortChoiceValue": "price-descendent",
      "searchProduct": "",
      "searchColor": "all",
      "listSrc": "/documentation/examples/api/products?sort=price-descendent&searchColor=all&_=RANDOM"
    }
  </script>
</amp-state>

Filter and sorting

We implemented filtering and ordering by combining amp-bind and amp-list. For filtering, we update, via amp-bind, the src of amp-list based on the color selection.

Similarly, we use a select option to allow the user to sort products based on price and we then modify the src url of amp-list.

We implemented an additional lightbox for the filter section on mobile.

Bestsellers

With AMP, you can easily pull in different latest offers or highlights without changing the page. To do so, just use amp-list to fire a CORS request to a JSON endpoint which supplies the list of related products. These are populated into an amp-mustache template on the client.

Bestsellers

<div class="bestsellers">
  <h3>Bestsellers</h3>
  <amp-list class="items"

Autosuggest configuration

The initial state and helper variables for the product autosuggest are configured by amp-state.

<amp-state id="autosuggest">
  <script type="application/json">
    {
      "endpoint": "/documentation/examples/api/products-autosuggest?q=",
      "emptyAndInitialTemplateJson": [{
        "query": "",
        "results": []
      }],
      "showDropdown": false,
      "query": ""
    }
  </script>
</amp-state>

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-80609902-1"
