Google sitemap generator
This plugin will handle requests of the URL /sitemap.xml and will produce XML suitable for submission to the Google sitemap service. The sitemap is a way to describe your site's content other than depending on a crawler that follows every link. It's suitable for dynamic sites with lots of different URLs for basically the same content.
The maintainer-ship of this plugin for Trac 0.11+ was taken over by martin_s in May 2010. The new Trac 0.11 version was written from scratch, mainly because of great API changes between the Trac versions. This wiki page is not yet fully updated to reflect the (sometimes missing) features of the new version.
The plugin will notify Google by sending a PING request to their site whenever content on your trac has changed (Trac 0.10 version only). For now, wiki pages are supported in the sitemap, but tickets will eventually follow.
The plugin was tested with Python 2.4 but should work with 2.3 as well. It uses API extensions of trac 0.10, so it wouldn't run with older versions of trac. Furthermore, you need setuptools to install and run the extension.
If the webadmin plugin is installed, this plugin will register a page to configure it.
Download the source code into a directory of your choice, open a command line terminal and run this command:
python setup.py install
Activate the plugin in your trac environment by adding this line to the section [component] of trac.ini
sitemap.* = enabled
Restart your webserver.
Download and Source
- Trac 0.10
- The project has been recently reactivated, since the original source code location has been switched off. In future, source will be on trac hacks SVN. Meanwhile, there's a trac.10 compatible egg available as an attachment here. Place it in the Trac plugins directory, e.g. /usr/share/trac/plugins. Visit http://svn.software-consultant.net/browser/sitemap-plugin/trunk to browse the source code.
This is how a sitemap XML could look like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84"> <url> <loc>http://localhost/wiki/ImageTest</loc> <lastmod>2006-11-07T15:37:07Z</lastmod> <changefreq>daily</changefreq> </url> </urlset>

Added encoding meta-comment and declared SVN keywords as unicode to avoid issues with non-english locales.
