Accelerated Mobile Pages

From IndieWeb
Jump to: navigation, search


Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is a Google-led project that speeds up a subset of HTML through caching and dependencies on google: https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml

IndieWeb Support

The pull request https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/pull/499 by Aaron Parecki adds h-entry support to AMP example(s) and thus makes AMP more IndieWeb friendly by default

The PR was subsequently closed with the comment "We decided to remove metadata requirements from AMP." See: https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/pull/593

Issues

XML like fragility

It appears that initial implementation(s) of AMP HTML consuming code treat it similarly to old XML consuming code, which is to fail in a fragile way, e.g. as noted in https://twitter.com/bryanrieger/status/651782717676216320
