AMP Story Layouts

Introduction

The amp-story-grid-layer provides a few pre-defined layout templates.

Fill

The fill layout template makes the first child take up all the available space.

<amp-story-page id="fill-template-example-1">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="fill">
    <div class="content">Content</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

Images & videos should have a resolution of 720x1280 pixels when using the fill layout.

<amp-story-page id="fill-template-example-2">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="fill">
    <amp-img src="https://unsplash.it/720/1280/"
      width="720"
      height="1280"
      layout="responsive"></amp-img>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

Vertical

The vertical template lays its elements out along the y-axis. Each element takes as much space as it needs.

<amp-story-page id="vertical-template-example-1">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="vertical">
    <div class="content">A paragraph</div>
    <div class="content">A longer paragraph</div>
    <div class="content">A much longer paragraph</div>
    <div class="content">A veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery long Paragraph. By far. So very very long. It's
      actually so long that it spans over multiple lines.</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

Depending on the screen-size not everything might fit on a single story page.

<amp-story-page id="vertical-template-example-2">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="vertical">
    <div class="content">Paragraph 1</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 2</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 3</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 4</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 5</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 6</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 7</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 8</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 9</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 10</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 11</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 12</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 13</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 14</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 15</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

The content defines how much space each row takes.

<amp-story-page id="vertical-template-example-3">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="vertical">
    <amp-img src="https://unsplash.it/720/640/?image=10"
      width="720"
      height="640"
      layout="responsive"></amp-img>
    <amp-img src="https://unsplash.it/720/640/?image=11"
      width="720"
      height="640"
      layout="responsive"></amp-img>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

Thirds

The thirds template divides the screen into three equally-sized rows.

<amp-story-page id="thirds-template-example-1">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="thirds">
    <div class="content"
      grid-area="upper-third">Paragraph 1</div>
    <div class="content"
      grid-area="middle-third">Paragraph 2</div>
    <div class="content"
      grid-area="lower-third">Paragraph 3</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

You can place elements into specifics slots using the upper-third, middle-third and lower-third grid-area attributes.

<amp-story-page id="thirds-template-example-2">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="thirds">
    <div class="content"
      grid-area="middle-third">Middle</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

Horizontal

The horizontal template lays its elements out along the x-axis.

<amp-story-page id="horizontal-template-example-1">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="horizontal">
    <div class="content">Paragraph 1</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 2</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>

By default, its elements are aligned to the start of the line.

<amp-story-page id="horizontal-template-example-2">
  <amp-story-grid-layer template="horizontal">
    <div class="content">Paragraph 1</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 2</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 3</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 4</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 5</div>
    <div class="content">Paragraph 6</div>
  </amp-story-grid-layer>
</amp-story-page>
