AMP releases new official plugin for WordPress
Alberto Medina, AMP and WordPress Developer Advocate at Google has announced the launch of official AMP plugin for WordPress.
This AMP WordPress plugin provides essential tools and functionality for AMP content creation to the WordPress users. In future this plugin will help bloggers to offer a seamless AMP experience to their visitors.
Talking about the features of this new plugin, Medina says, “Version 1.0 of the plugin integrates AMP content creation seamlessly with standard WordPress content creation workflows across both classic editing, or Gutenberg-based editing. In particular, a native AMP experience is supported in this release, allowing for WordPress sites to be built entirely with AMP, without a duplicate AMP version of a page in ‘paired mode’.
Features and capabilities of the 1.0 release include:
- Content sanitizers: to help substituting HTML tags for their corresponding AMP components ones, implement optimizations, and feed validation information to the plugin compatibility’s tool (see below)
- Compatibility tool: to assist the development of AMP experiences by enabling AMP debugging based on exposing extensive and detailed information about validation errors that may exist, the markup/scripts causing them, and the specific components on site (e.g theme, plugin, core) bearing the responsibility of that page content.
- CSS Tree Shaking: to assist in the process of putting the CSS-house in order in cases where existing CSS rule exceed the maximum limited permitted on single AMP pages”.
