AMP standards


is there any chance that Beans will support AMP?

Hi Anna,

Beans is very flexible when it comes to controlling what is output on the page, you have full control over every elements loading (Assets, HTML etc). Therefore it makes your life easy to create AMP layouts! That said, it is not on the road map to include AMP layouts in Beans core at this stage, you have to do it yourself πŸ˜‰

Happy coding,

Thank very much you both for response!

Beans is supporting Schema though, why not AMP then?

Hi Anna,

Proper AMP support is a lot more complex that Schema, it uses completely different HTML tags, assets loading etc. Beans philosophy is not to do things half way, and to add proper AMP support is a big job which isn't on the priority list.

That said, Beans flexible will definitely allow you to add AMP support in a very easy way, especially because your can add, modify or remove any markup on the page like beans_modify_markup( 'beans_post_image', 'amp-img' ); would change the post img markup to amp-img. You have the same type of control over all markup attributes, all that via the Beans HTML API (see documentation). You also have full control over every fragments (little blocks) loading on the page and indeed all the assets as well. As far as I know, no other theme provide this level of control πŸ˜‰

Have fun,
