Project description

sitemap.xml generation using lxml with support for alternates. It uses Python 3’s keyword-only arguments for self-documenting code.


Simply pip install django-sitemaps. The package consists of a single python module, django_sitemaps, containing the single class; there’s no additional configuration necessary.



from app.pages.sitemaps import PagesSitemap

def sitemap(request):
    sitemap = Sitemap(
        # All URLs are passed through build_absolute_uri.

    # URLs can be added one-by-one. The only required argument
    # is the URL. All other arguments are keyword-only arguments.
    for p in
        url = p.get_absolute_url()
                code: urljoin(domain, url)
                for code, domain in PAGE_DOMAINS[p.language].items()

    # Adding conventional Django sitemaps is supported. The
    # request argument is necessary because Django's sitemaps
    # depend on django.contrib.sites, resp. RequestSite.
    sitemap.add_django_sitemap(PagesSitemap, request=request)

    # You could get the serialized XML...
    # ... = sitemap.serialize([pretty_print=False])
    # ... or use the ``response`` helper to return a
    # ready-made ``HttpResponse``:
    return sitemap.response(
        # pretty_print is False by default


from django_sitemaps import robots_txt
from app.views import sitemap

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^sitemap\.xml$', sitemap),
    url(r'^robots\.txt$', robots_txt(timeout=86400)),

The robots_txt function returns a view which can be used to generate a robots.txt file containing sitemap URLs. The default sitemap only contains:

User-agent: *
Sitemap: <protocol>://<host>/sitemap.xml

The list of sitemap URLs may be overridden by setting sitemaps:

from django.urls import reverse_lazy

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^robots\.txt$', robots_txt(
