simple Python module to create XML sitemaps

Project description

THIS IS A FORK

The metadata for the Apesmit package by Florian Diesch indicates Python 3 compatibility, but it actually works fine with Python 2. This fork just removes the Python 3-only flag.

What is ApeSmit?

ApeSmit is a very simple Python module to create XML sitemaps as defined at http://www.sitemaps.org. ApeSmit doesn’t contain any web spider or something like that, it just writes the data you provide to a file using the proper syntax.

Usage

First we create an instance of SiteMap:

>>> sm=Sitemap(changefreq='weekly')

The changefreq keyword sets a default value for that parameter.

Now we add some URL’s to our sitemap:

>>> sm.add('http://www.example.com/')

We may use some parameters:

>>> sm.add('http://www.example.com/news/', changefreq='daily',
...                                        priority=1.0,
...                                        lastmod='1891-1-1')

There’s a shortcut for URL’s that changed today:

>>> sm.add('http://www.example.org/about.html', lastmod='today')

That’s all for now. Next we need a file to write the sitemap in:

>>> out=open('sitemap.xml', 'w')

Now we write our sitemap and then close the file:

>>> sm.write(out)
>>> out.close()

And that’s the content of our shiny new sitemap:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<urlset xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9
        http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd"
        xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
 <url>
  <loc>http://www.example.com/</loc>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
 </url>
 <url>
  <loc>http://www.example.com/news/</loc>
  <lastmod>1891-1-1</lastmod>
  <changefreq>daily</changefreq>
  <priority>1.0</priority>
 </url>
 <url>
  <loc>http://www.example.org/about.html</loc>
  <lastmod>2008-04-03</lastmod>
  <changefreq>weekly</changefreq>
 </url>
</urlset>
