Table of Contents

Installation

npm install @nuxtjs/sitemap

or

yarn add @nuxtjs/sitemap

Setup

Add @nuxtjs/sitemap to the modules section of your nuxt.config.js file:

{
  modules: [
    '@nuxtjs/sitemap'
  ],
}

notice:
If you use other modules (eg. nuxt-i18n), always declare the sitemap module at end of array
eg. modules: ['nuxt-i18n', '@nuxtjs/sitemap']

Configuration

Add a custom configuration with the sitemap property:

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  modules: [
    '@nuxtjs/sitemap'
  ],
  sitemap: {
    // options
  },
}

The module option parameter can be:

Object

A single item of sitemap or sitemap index:

{
  sitemap: {
    // ...
  },
}

Array

A list of sitemap or sitemap index items:

{
  sitemap: [
    {
      // ...
    },
    {
      // ...
    },
  ],
}

Function

A function that returns a valid sitemap configuration:

{
  sitemap: function () {
    return {
      // ...
    }
  },
}

Boolean

You can disable the sitemap module with a boolean value at false:

{
  sitemap: false
}

Usage

Setup a Sitemap

By default, the sitemap is setup to the following path: /sitemap.xml
All static routes (eg. /pages/about.vue) are automatically add to the sitemap, but you can exclude each of them with the exclude property.
For dynamic routes (eg. /pages/_id.vue), you have to declare them with the routes property. This option can be an array or a function. In addition, the routes defined in generate.routes will be automatically used for the sitemap.

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  sitemap: {
    hostname: 'https://example.com',
    gzip: true,
    exclude: [
      '/secret',
      '/admin/**'
    ],
    routes: [
      '/page/1',
      '/page/2',
      {
        url: '/page/3',
        changefreq: 'daily',
        priority: 1,
        lastmod: '2017-06-30T13:30:00.000Z'
      }
    ]
  }
}

Setup a Sitemap Index

To declare a sitemap index and its linked sitemaps, use the sitemaps property.
By default, the sitemap index is setup to the following path: /sitemapindex.xml
Each item of the sitemaps array can be setup with its own sitemap options.

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  sitemap: {
    hostname: 'https://example.com',
    lastmod: '2017-06-30',
    sitemaps: [
      {
        path: '/sitemap-foo.xml',
        routes: ['foo/1', 'foo/2'],
        gzip: true
      }, {
        path: '/folder/sitemap-bar.xml',
        routes: ['bar/1', 'bar/2'],
        exclude: ['/**']
      }
    ]
  }
}

Setup a list of sitemaps

To declare a list of sitemaps, use an array to setup each sitemap with its own configuration.
You can combine sitemap and sitemap index configurations.

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  sitemap: [
    {
      path: '/sitemap-products.xml',
      routes: [
        // array of URL
      ]
    }, {
      path: '/sitemap-news.xml',
      routes: () => // promise or function
    }, {
      path: '/sitemapindex.xml',
      sitemaps: [{
        // array of Sitemap configuration
      }]
    }
  }
}

Sitemap Options

routes (optional) - array | function

The routes parameter follows the same way than the generate configuration.

See as well the routes declaration examples below.

path (optional) - string

  • Default: /sitemap.xml

The URL path of the generated sitemap.

hostname (optional) - string

  • Default:
    1. sitemap.hostname value from your nuxt.config.js
    2. build.publicPath value from your nuxt.config.js (⚠️ deprecated)
    3. os.hostname() in generate or spa mode, or dynamically based on request URL (headers.host) in ssr mode

This value is mandatory for generation sitemap file, and you should explicitly provide it in generate or spa mode.

⚠️ The usage of build.publicPath as default value is deprecated and will be removed on release v3.0.
To disable it on the current release, set a falsy value (eg. hostname: false).

cacheTime (optional) - number

  • Default: 1000 * 60 * 15 (15 Minutes)

Defines how frequently sitemap routes should be updated (value in milliseconds).
Setting a negative value will disable the cache.

Please note that after each invalidation, routes will be evaluated again (see routes declaration section).

This option is only available in ssr mode.

etag (optional) - object

Enable the etag cache header on sitemap (see etag docs for possible options).

To disable etag for sitemap set etag: false

This option is only available in ssr mode.

exclude (optional) - string array

  • Default: []

The exclude parameter is an array of glob patterns to exclude static routes from the generated sitemap.

filter (optional) - function

  • Default: undefined

If the filter option is set as a function, all routes will be filtered through it.

This option is useful to customize or extend the features of the module, before the sitemap generation.

Examples:

// nuxt.config.js
 
// Filter routes by language
{
  sitemap: {
    filter ({ routes, options }) {
      if (options.hostname === 'example.com') {
        return routes.filter(route => route.locale === 'en')
      }
      return routes.filter(route => route.locale === 'fr')
    }
  }
}
 
// Add a trailing slash to each route
{
  sitemap: {
    filter ({ routes }) {
      return routes.map(route => {
        route.url = `${route.url}/`
        return route
      })
    }
  }
}

gzip (optional) - boolean

  • Default: false

Enable the creation of the .xml.gz sitemap compressed with gzip.

xmlNs (optional) - string

  • Default: undefined

Set the XML namespaces by override all default xmlns attributes in <urlset> element.

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  sitemap: {
    xmlNs: 'xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"'
  }
}

xslUrl (optional) - string

  • Default: undefined

The URL path of the XSL file to style the sitemap.

trailingSlash (optional) - boolean

  • Default: false

Add a trailing slash to each route URL (eg. /page/1 => /page/1/)

notice: To avoid duplicate content detection from crawlers, you have to configure an HTTP 301 redirect between the 2 URLs (see redirect-module or nuxt-trailingslash-module).

i18n (optional) - string | object

  • Default: undefined

Configure the support of localized routes from nuxt-i18n module.

If the i18n option is configured, the sitemap module will automatically add the default locale URL of each page in a <loc> element, with child <xhtml:link> entries listing every language/locale variant of the page including itself (see Google sitemap guidelines).

Example:

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  modules: [
    'nuxt-i18n',
    '@nuxtjs/sitemap'
  ],
  i18n: {
    locales: ['en', 'es', 'fr'],
    defaultLocale: 'en'
  },
  sitemap: {
    hostname: 'https://example.com',
    // shortcut notation (basic)
    i18n: true,
    // nuxt-i18n notation (advanced)
    i18n: {
      locales: ['en', 'es', 'fr'],
      routesNameSeparator: '___'
    }
  }
}
  <url>
    <loc>https://example.com/</loc>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://example.com/"/>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="https://example.com/es/"/>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="https://example.com/fr/"/>
  </url>
  <url>
    <loc>https://example.com/es/</loc>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://example.com/"/>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="https://example.com/es/"/>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="https://example.com/fr/"/>
  </url>
  <url>
    <loc>https://example.com/fr/</loc>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://example.com/"/>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="https://example.com/es/"/>
    <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="https://example.com/fr/"/>
  </url>

    sitemaps: [
      {
        path: '/sitemap-foo.xml',

  • Default: false

Enable the creation of the .xml.gz sitemap index compressed with gzip.

xmlNs (optional) - string

  • Default: undefined

    sitemaps: [...]
  }
}

xslUrl (optional) - string

  • Default: undefined

The URL path of the XSL file to style the sitemap index.

Routes Declaration

By default, the dynamic routes are ignored by the sitemap module.
Nuxt cannot automatically provide this type of complex routes.

Example:

-| pages/
---| index.vue  --> static route
---| about.vue  --> static route
---| users/
-----| _id.vue  --> dynamic route

If you want the module to add any route with dynamic parameters, you have to set an array of dynamic routes.

eg. add routes for /users/:id in the configuration:

From a static list

// nuxt.config.js
 
{
  sitemap: {
    routes: ['/users/1', '/users/2', '/users/3']
  }
}

From a function which returns a Promise

// nuxt.config.js
 
const axios = require('axios')
 
{
  sitemap: {
    routes: async () => {
      const { data } = await axios.get('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users')
      return data.map((user) => `/users/${user.username}`)
    }
  }
}

Hooks

Hooks are listeners to Nuxt events. Learn more

You can register hooks on certain life cycle events.

Hook Arguments When
