Django robots.txt generator

Project description

Django robots.txt generator. Based on using decorated django.conf.urls.url. It gets urlpatterns and replaces ambiguous parts by *.

Installation & Usage

The recommended way to install django-url-robots is with pip

  1. Install from PyPI with easy_install or pip:

    pip install django-url-robots
    
  2. Add 'url_robots' to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    INSTALLED_APPS = (
        ...
        'url_robots',
        ...
        )
    
  3. Add url_robots view to your root URLconf:

    urlpatterns += [
        url(r'^robots\.txt$', url_robots.views.robots_txt),
        ]
    
  4. Describe rules by boolean keyword argument robots_allow using for it url_robots.utils.url instead django.conf.urls.url:

    from url_robots.utils import url
    
    urlpatterns += [
       url('^profile/private$', views.some_view, robots_allow=False),
       ]
    

django-url-robots tested with Django-1.8+. Encodes unicode characters by percent-encoding.

Settings

In this moment there are only one option to define template of robots.txt file:

urlpatterns += [
    url(r'^robots\.txt$', url_robots.views.robots_txt, {'template': 'my_awesome_robots_template.txt'}),
    ]

Example

robots_template.txt:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /*  # disallow all
{{ rules|safe }}

urls.py:

from django.conf.urls import include

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^profile', include('url_robots.tests.urls_profile')),
]

urls_profile.py:

from url_robots.utils import url

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^s$', views.some_view, name='profiles', robots_allow=True),
    url(r'^/(?P<nick>\w+)$', views.some_view),
    url(r'^/(?P<nick>\w+)/private', views.some_view, name='profile_private', robots_allow=False),
    url(r'^/(?P<nick>\w+)/public', views.some_view, name='profile_public', robots_allow=True),
    ]

Resulting robots.txt:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /*  # disallow all
Allow: /profiles$
Disallow: /profile/*/private*
Allow: /profile/*/public*
