|Google AMP Joins OpenJS Foundation|
|Friday, 18 October 2019|
Google has announced its AMP framework will join the OpenJS Foundation. AMP has been open source for the last four years, but the move will make it less Google-centric.
To build AMP pages, you create another version of your site that follows the AMP project’s standards. Once you do that, your AMP site will have its own URL (site.com/page/amp) and be compatible with most popular web browsers like Chrome, FireFox, and Safari.
Google says that this goal fits well with AMP's mission to provide a user-first format for web content. Google also likes the fact that the OpenJS Foundation is happy for projects to maintain their identities.
Malte Ubl of AMP’s Technical Steering Committee said:
"Google will continue to be a strong supporter of AMP. Google is already a platinum member of the OpenJS Foundation, and will continue to provide additional financial and other forms of support to the foundation to ensure a thriving AMP community and ecosystem. The team of Google employees contributing full time to the AMP open source project will also continue to do so".
