generate-sitemap 1.10.1 Released

TL;DR

I just released generate-sitemap 1.10.1, a GitHub Action for generating XML sitemaps for static websites. The generate-sitemap GitHub Action is implemented in Python, and generates an XML sitemap by crawling the GitHub repository containing the html of the site, using commit dates to generate <lastmod> tags in the sitemap.

Changelog 1.10.1 – 2024-06-08

Fixed

  • Escape characters that must be escaped in XML.

Dependencies

More Information

Please consider starring generate-sitemap’s GitHub repository:

Generate an XML sitemap for a GitHub Pages site using GitHub Actions

Check out all of our GitHub Actions: https://actions.cicirello.org/

The generate-sitemap GitHub action generates a sitemap for a website hosted on GitHub
Pages, and has the following features:

  • Support for both xml and txt sitemaps (you choose using one of the action’s inputs).
  • When generating an xml sitemap, it uses the last commit date of
    each file to generate the <lastmod> tag in the sitemap entry. If the file
    was created during that workflow run, but not yet committed, then it instead uses
    the current date (however, we recommend if possible committing newly created files first).
  • Supports URLs for html and pdf files in the sitemap, and has inputs
    to control the included file types (defaults include both html and pdf files in the sitemap).
  • Now also supports including URLs for a user specified list of
    additional file extensions in the sitemap.

For more information, see my earlier post about generate-sitemap here on DEV, as well as its webpage.
