AMP Linter

npm version


A linter for AMP documents: reports errors and suspicious constructions such as images missing or incorrectly sized, missing CORS headers, or invalid metadata.


Command-line (local build):

# from the amp-toolbox root
$ npm install
$ npm run build # generates packages/linter/src/cli.js
$ cd packages/linter
$ node src/cli.js

Command-line (from npm):

$ npx @ampproject/toolbox-linter


const fs = require("fs");
const linter = require("@ampproject/toolbox-linter");
const cheerio = require("cheerio");

const body = fs.readFileSync("amp-dev.html");
const context = {
  $: cheerio.load(body),
  headers: {},
  url: ""



One test has a dependency on the dump-signedexchange go binary. If this is available (installation instructions) at additional check of the application/signed-exchange response will be performed.


Important note! Many of the scripts below rely on binaries that are installed in the ../../node_modules/.bin directory, and will fail if invoked in the default configuration. To fix this, either:

  1. Add ../../node_modules/.bin to your path. A tool like direnv may make this easier.
  2. Invoke via "wrapper" scripts in ../../package.json. "test:node:linter" is an example of such a script.


npm run build

Builds *.js from *.ts. Use this instead of tsc to ensure the correct config (via command-line arguments) is in use. (@pika/plugin-ts-standard-pkg needs slightly different config, but it's essentially hardcoded to read from tsconfig.json, so we need to use that for pika.)

npm test

Runs the tests. (If this doesn't work, try running npm run test:node:linter from the root directory.

npm run lint

Checks the code for lint errors.

npm run watch

Automatically rebuild *.js whenever *.ts changes.

npm run package

Generates npm-installable version of the package in pkg/. From another directory install via npm install amp-toolbox/packages/linter/pkg.

Note: this command will emit multiple warnings of the form 'Valid relative imports must include the ".js" file extension' as well as complaints about require and module not being valid ESM globals; these can both be ignored.

(The first issue is due to extension-less imports not being valid ES2018; the second is that the globals require and module are not valid ESM globals. Not being valid ES2018 is not a problem here, since this code is not designed to run in the browser.)

npm run publish

Uses @pika's pack publish to publish to npm.

Suggested Development Workflow

  1. Create stub rule in rules/, that always "fails". e.g. it always returns qqqqqq. It should extend the Rule class.
  2. Write tests in tests/network.ts. (If HTTP requests are required; if not then create a directory in tests/local/MyNewTest-1 that contains a source.html (AMP HTML source) and expected.json (expected JSON output), and tests/local.js will automatically execute your "test".)
  3. Run the test using npm test. If the fixtures can't be found, they will be generated automatically (via real network requests). Hopefully your test will fail.
  4. Fix the implementation, and re-run the test.
  5. Use npm run publish to publish the new version to npm. (If you have two-factor auto turned on, this might not work, even though no errors are reported. To actually publish (or at least see the errors), run npm publish from the pkg directory.)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
