Project description


There are times when your site is too big to serve the ``sitemap.xml`` by your Django application. This little app is meant to help you with such cases. Instead of serving the sitemap.xml from Django, it features a **management command** that generates the ``sitemap.xml`` to the separate files.

Feature highlights:

* Generate sitemap files to your STATIC directory
* Split sitemap files when limit for size is reached
* Gzip the sitemap files when required
* Set different domain for sitemap file
* Ping google that sitemap has changed


Install via standard Python way::

pip install django-static-sitemaps

Add to you ``INSTALLED_APPS``:


Set ``STATICSITEMAPS_ROOT_SITEMAP`` variable in your ```` to point to dictionary holding the sitemaps configuration (as seen in Django docs)::

STATICSITEMAPS_ROOT_SITEMAP = 'myproject.sitemaps.sitemaps'

Include ``static_sitemaps.urls`` to your ```` to serve the root ``sitemap.xml`` if needed::

urlpatterns = patterns('',
url(r'^sitemap.xml', include('static_sitemaps.urls')),


Advanced settings

Defaults to ``True``. If ``True``, gzip compression will be used when generating the sitemaps files (which is very possible by sitemaps specification).

Template for sitemap parts. Defaults to ``sitemap-%(section)s-%(page)s.xml``.

Set this to the domain from which you serve static files in case it it different from domain of your Django application. Defaults to current site's domain.
