A simple Django app to provide access to a robots.txt file

Project Description

A simple Django app to serve a robots.txt file.


Django 1.2 or greater, Python 2.7 or greater.


Use your favorite Python installer to install it from PyPI:

pip install django-roberts

Or get the source from the application site:

hg clone

The robots package, included in the distribution, should be placed on the PYTHONPATH.


  1. Add robots to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

  2. Include the package’s url patterns in your root

    url(r'', include('robots.urls')),

If your run Django’s development server you should now be able to see the example robots.txt file at


For convenience the package defines the usable combinations of robots directives which can be used in your views and templates.

The following constants are defined:


Here’s a simple example of using these constants in practice…

In your view:

import robots

class MyView(ListView):
    meta_robots = robots.NOINDEX_FOLLOW

In your base template:

# base.html
  {% include 'robots/meta_robots.html' %}

  <!-- OR -->

  {% if view.meta_robots %}
    <meta name="robots" content="{{ view.meta_robots }}">
  {% endif %}
