sitemap generator plugin for pelican

Project Description

A sitemap plugin for `Pelican`_.

It generates a sitemap.xml according to the specification of ``_ and considers the pelican index page, articles, pages and special pages (like tags, categories, authors).
Also comes with a XML stylesheet to be able to view the sitemap in browser without pain.

There is also a `sitemap plugin`_ within the official pelican plugin repo. The main differences in my package are:

* the overview pages for tags, pages aso are included
* there is a stylesheet
* used dates do not include time

**NOTICE: Backwards incompatible changes in 1.0.0:**

In version 1.0.0 the package naming has been fixed, it's now called "extended_sitemap" (instead "extended-sitemap") following PEP8.
Please adjust your usages in *PLUGINS* appropriately.
