Preview and Validate
Preview the AMP page just as you would preview any other static HTML site. There’s no build step or preprocessing required. Either:
- Open it directly in the browser from the file system (certain elements might not work due to XMLHttpRequests failing).
- Use a local web server like Apache 2 or Nginx.
(Tip: For a quick web server, run
python -m SimpleHTTPServer.)
Next, make sure that your AMP page is actually valid AMP, or it won’t get discovered and distributed by third-party platforms like Google Search. To validate:
- Open your page in your browser.
- Add "
#development=1" to the URL, for example,
- Open the Chrome DevTools console and check for validation errors.
