Most of the auto-suggestions in sites would be normal strings but sometimes users look for more that, s, where this becomes useful rich content auto-suggestions, provide more information and clarity. Google AMP makes it easier for developers to use this option using amp-autocomplete.

To Suggest rich contents using amp-autocomplete we pass the data, s into an array of JsonObjects in items as given below




{ "items" : [
    {
        "city" : "Albany",
        "state" : "New York", 
        "areaCode" : 518,
        "population" : 98251
    }, {
        "city" : "Annapolis",
        "state" : "Maryland",
        "areaCode" : 410,
        "population" : 39321
    }, {
        "city" : "Trenton",
        "state" : "New Jersey",
        "areaCode" : 609,
        "population" : 84964
    }
] }

Display of these data are given through a template as given below






<template type="amp-mustache" id="amp-template-custom">
  <div class="city-item" data-value="{{city}}, {{state}}">
      <div>{{city}}, {{state}}</div>
      <div class="custom-population">Population: {{population}}</div>
  </div>
</template>
