Building AMP Templates

The following steps are required to build and deploy AMP: create an AMP-compliant template, and provide a link from the native template to the AMP template.

After implementing these steps, the Brightspot server intercepts requests for native templates that have a corresponding AMP-compliant template, and delivers the latter to the visitor.

Step 1: Create an AMP-compliant template

After completing the standard (non-AMP) template, create a parallel AMP-compliant template in the same directory. The filename must end with the compound extension .amp.hbs. For examples and tools for developing AMP-compliant templates, see Create your first AMP page.

Step 2: Add a discovery link to an AMP template

In the native template’s tag, add a <link> tag to the AMP template.

<!-- Filename: MyTemplate.hbs --> 
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <link rel="amphtml" href=""> 
    <body> </body>
  • Indicates that the template’s filename is MyTemplate.hbs. The associated AMP template’s filename is therefore MyTemplate.amp.hbs.
  • Adds a tag. This tag informs AMP providers that the native version of the template also has an AMP-compliant version. (For details about this form of the tag, see Make your page discoverable.)
