pelican-extended-sitemap 1.0.2

sitemap generator plugin for pelican

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.
