Svelte sitemap.xml generator

Small helper which scans your Svelte routes and generates sitemap.xml


npm install svelte-sitemap --save-dev
# yarn add svelte-sitemap --dev


Use this library as a postbuild hook in your package.json file.

File: package.json

  "name": "my-awesome-project",
  "scripts": {
    "postbuild": "npx svelte-sitemap --domain"

It scans your routes in build/ folder and generates build/sitemap.xml file.

Alternative usage: TypeScript or JavaScript method

Sometimes it can be useful to call the script directly from JavaScript or TypeScript. Of course there is also this option, but in most cases you will need the CLI method as a postbuild hook.

File my-script.js:

import { createSitemap } from 'svelte-sitemap/src/index.js';

createSitemap('', { debug: true });

And now you can run your script like this: node my-script.js

How to exclude directory?

Let's say we want to ignore all admin folders and subfolders + just one exact page pages/my-secret-page

npx svelte-sitemap --domain --ignore 'pages/my-secret-page' --ignore '**/admin/**'

Ping Google Search Console

Every time I deploy a new version, I want to inform Google that there is a new update.

See this discussion with very useful tips.

Error: Missing folder

× Folder 'build/' doesn't exist. Make sure you are using this library as 'postbuild' so 'build/' folder was successfully created before running this script.

  • Make sure your output folder exists. If it has other name than the default build, you can use the outDir (--out-dir) option.

Vercel apdatper

  • If you are using Vercel hosting and adapter-vercel you'll probably want to use it like this:
npx svelte-sitemap --out-dir .vercel/output/static --domain

Or check out other solutions and join the discussion.

Cloudflare adapter

  • If you're using @sveltejs/adapter-cloudflare to deploy your app to Cloudflare Pages, you'll need to add some options to your adapter in svelte.config.js:
-import adapter from '@sveltejs/adapter-auto';
+import adapter from '@sveltejs/adapter-cloudflare';

/** @type {import('@sveltejs/kit').Config} */
const config = {
    kit: {
-       adapter: adapter()
+       adapter: adapter({ routes: { include: ['/*'], exclude: ['<all>', '/sitemap.xml'] }})

export default config;

Error: Missing html files

× There is no static html file in your 'build/' folder. Are you sure you are using Svelte adapter-static with prerender option?

This library is intended for the static adapter and prerender option (SSG). So if there are no static files, then my library will not work for you :/

I physically can't. I have nowhere to store it. I don't even have a server database to store it. So even if Justin Bieber asked nicely to see your data, I wouldn't have anything to show him.

That's why, with this library, what happens on your device stays on your device till disappear.
