Project description

paka.sitemaps is a Python library that helps generate XML files according to protocol.


  • Python 2.7 and 3.5 are supported
  • PyPy (Python 2.7) is supported
  • does not depend on any web framework
  • automatically splits all added URLs into sitemaps and sitemap indexes
  • lazily writes to file system


>>> from paka import sitemaps

Create directory for resulting XML files (here it is a temporary directory):

>>> import tempfile
>>> fs_root = tempfile.mkdtemp()

Create sitemap building context, add few URLs to it, and close the context:

>>> ctx = sitemaps.Context(
...     fs_root=fs_root, base_url=u"")
>>> ctx.add(u"/some/path-here/", priority=0.1)
>>> ctx.add(u"/other")
>>> ctx.close()

Now fs_root contains one sitemap and one sitemap index:

>>> import os
>>> sorted(os.listdir(fs_root))
['i1.xml', 's1-1.xml']

Results can be checked with XML parser (here lxml is used):

>>> from lxml import etree
>>> doc = etree.parse(os.path.join(fs_root, "s1-1.xml"))
>>> ns = {"s": sitemaps.XMLNS}
>>> url_els = doc.xpath("//s:url", namespaces=ns)
>>> sorted([el.findtext("s:loc", namespaces=ns) for el in url_els])
['', '']

Remove directory and files created for demonstration:

>>> import shutil
>>> shutil.rmtree(fs_root)
