express-static-angular-seo

A simple reverse proxy that takes any URL and uses PhantomJS to fetch a version that has the JavaScript executed. Set the Host HTTP header to use this for more than one domain.

This app listens on port 8888 by default, it can be changed by setting the environment variable NODE_PORT.

When loading is done on your webpage (all XHR, rendering, etc), you should call

if(typeof window.callPhantom === "function") {
	window.callPhantom({rendered: true});
}

Or if you prefer coffeescript

if typeof window.callPhantom is "function"
	window.callPhantom rendered: true

Angular.js

If you are using angular.js, you can use my module angular-static-seo. Instructions are on that readme.

Nginx Setup

You can setup nginx to automatically send Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc to the pre-rendered versions. Nginx can also automatically cache the results:

nginx.conf

...
http {
	...
	# caching options
	proxy_cache_path /var/cache/nginx levels=1:2 keys_zone=node_express_cache:8m max_size=1000m inactive=600m;
	proxy_temp_path /var/cache/tmp;

	server_names_hash_bucket_size 64;
	...
}

sites-enabled/demo

upstream node_express {
    server localhost:9000;
}

upstream express_static_angular_seo {
	server localhost:8888;
}

server {
	listen 80;

	access_log on;
	error_log on;

	root /www/var/express/public;
	index index.html;

	server_name example.com;

	set $is_bot '0';

	if ($http_user_agent ~ '(facebookexternalhit|googlebot|bingbot|twitterbot|teoma|Baiduspider)') {
		set $is_bot '1';
	}

	location / {
		add_header X-Bot $is_bot;

		proxy_cache node_express_cache;

		proxy_redirect off;
		proxy_set_header Host $host;
		proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
		proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
		proxy_cache_key "$scheme$host$request_uri$is_bot";

		proxy_cache_valid 1d;

		add_header X-Cached $upstream_cache_status;

		proxy_pass http://node_express;
		if ($is_bot = '1') {
			proxy_pass http://express_static_angular_seo;
		}
	}
}

Clearing/purging the cache

find /var/cache/nginx/ -type f -delete
service nginx restart

Restarting nginx is important after clearing the cache.
