The following constants are defined:

  • NOINDEX_FOLLOW
  • INDEX_NOFOLLOW

Here’s a simple example of using these constants in practice…

In your view:

# views.py
import robots

class MyView(ListView):
    meta_robots = robots.NOINDEX_FOLLOW
    ...
    ...

In your base template:

# base.html
<html>
  <head>
  ...
  {% include 'robots/meta_robots.html' %}

  <!-- OR -->

  {% if view.meta_robots %}
    <meta name="robots" content="{{ view.meta_robots }}">
  {% endif %}
  ...
  ...
