Google sitemap generator

Description

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 plugin will notify Google by sending a PING request to their site whenever content on your trac has changed. For now, wiki pages are supported in the sitemap, but tickets will eventually follow.

Requirements

The plugin was tested with Python 2.3 but should work with 2.4 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. Please note that (as of today 2006-11-09) this does not work, the admin page is not finished yet.

Installation

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.
