Sitemap middleware for Assemble

Table of Contents


Install with npm:

npm i assemble-middleware-sitemap --save-dev

Next, register the middleware with Assemble:

assemble: {
  options: {
    middleware: ['assemble-middleware-sitemap', 'other/middleware/*']

Visit the middleware docs for more info or for help getting started.


See for detail XML tag definitions.


Type: String
Default: undefined

Sitemap destination. If not set, fallback to assemble destination.


Type: String
Default: homepage (from package.json)

Site URL


Type: String
Default: weekly

How frequently the page is likely to change. This value provides general information to search engines and may not correlate exactly to how often they crawl the page. Valid values are:

  • always
  • hourly
  • daily
  • weekly
  • monthly
  • yearly
  • never


Type: Float
Default: 0.5

The priority of this URL relative to other URLs on your site. Valid values range from 0.0 to 1.0. This value does not affect how your pages are compared to pages on other sites—it only lets the search engines know which pages you deem most important for the crawlers.


Type: Array
Default: ['404']

Pages to omit from the sitemap.

options: {
  sitemap: {
    exclusions: ["foo", "bar"],
  files: {


Type: String / Boolean
Default: false

Path to which the URLs in Sitemap and Robots should be relative to. true is equal to the destination path dest and false is equal to the root directory.


Type: Boolean
Default: true

Generate robots.txt from exclusions list.

Usage Examples


To simplify might do something like:

assemble: {
  blog: {
    options: {
      plugins: ['assemble-middleware-sitemap'],
    files: {
      './blog/': ['./templates/blog/*.hbs']




assemble: {
  blog: {
    options: {
      plugins: ['assemble-middleware-sitemap'],
      sitemap: {
        homepage: '',
            changefreq: 'daily',
            priority: '0.8',
            exclude: ['50x', 'foo'],
            robot: false
    files: {
      './blog/': ['./templates/blog/*.hbs']
