Django robots.txt generator

Project description

Fork of dimka665

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 django2-url-robots is with pip

  1. Install from PyPI with easy_install or pip:

    pip install django2-url-robots
  2. Add 'django2_url_robots' to your INSTALLED_APPS:

  3. Add django2_url_robots view to your root URLconf:

    urlpatterns += [
        url(r'^robots\.txt$', django2_url_robots.views.robots_txt),
  4. Describe rules by boolean keyword argument robots_allow using for it django2_url_robots.utils.url instead django.conf.urls.url:

    from django2_url_robots.utils import url
    urlpatterns += [
       url('^profile/private$', views.some_view, robots_allow=False),

django2-url-robots tested with Django-2.0.5+. Encodes unicode characters by percent-encoding.


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

urlpatterns += [
    url(r'^robots\.txt$', django2_url_robots.views.robots_txt, {'template': 'my_awesome_robots_template.txt'}),



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

from django.conf.urls import include

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^profile', include('django2_url_robots.tests.urls_profile')),

from django2_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*
