The plugin adapter allows us to create custom plugins without modifying the core of the AMP player. The development of plugins can be done for the AMP integration team or customers developers, in the follow document it's describe the basic steps to work with the plugin adapter and best practices



On the side of AMP configuration, you must add the plugin in the follow way:








         data:{} // use it if you need another sources to load, id's etcetera




After setup your configuration, you need to create the plugin with the same name as was setup before, on your code you need to add the follow:



function createPluginNamePlugin (player, config){



* Registers a plugin factory function. This function is
* called when akamai.amp.AMP.create is called and the
* config object contains the plugin's key.
* @param {String} key
* The plugin's key. Used to configure the plugin.
* @param {Function} factory
* The factory function used to create plugin.
* @param {String|Array.<String>} [mode=["html", "flash"]]
* Optional player mode(s) in which the plugin can be used.
akamai.amp.AMP.registerPlugin("PLUGIN_NAME", createPluginNamePlugin);


A good practice is also to ensure the akamai player or instance is ready before loading the plugin, you can add on your custom plugin as: if (window.akamai ){}
