Remix SEO

Collection of SEO utilities like sitemap, robots.txt, etc. for a Remix

Features

  • Generate Sitemap
  • Generate Robots.txt

Installation

To use it, install it from npm (or yarn):

npm install @balavishnuvj/remix-seo

Usage

For all miscellaneous routes in root like /robots.txt, /sitemap.xml. We can create a single function to handle all of them instead polluting our routes folder.

For that, lets create a file called otherRootRoutes.server.ts (file could be anything, make sure it is import only in server by ending with.server.{ts|js})

// otherRootRoutes.server.ts

import { EntryContext } from "remix";

type Handler = (
  request: Request,
  remixContext: EntryContext
) => Promise<Response | null> | null;

export const otherRootRoutes: Record<string, Handler> = {};

export const otherRootRouteHandlers: Array<Handler> = [
  ...Object.entries(otherRootRoutes).map(([path, handler]) => {
    return (request: Request, remixContext: EntryContext) => {
      if (new URL(request.url).pathname !== path) return null;
      return handler(request, remixContext);
    };
  }),
];

and import this file in your entry.server.tsx

import { renderToString } from "react-dom/server";
import { RemixServer } from "remix";
import type { EntryContext } from "remix";
+import { otherRootRouteHandlers } from "./otherRootRoutes.server";

export default async function handleRequest(
  request: Request,
  responseStatusCode: number,
  responseHeaders: Headers,
  remixContext: EntryContext
) {
+  for (const handler of otherRootRouteHandlers) {
+    const otherRouteResponse = await handler(request, remixContext);
+    if (otherRouteResponse) return otherRouteResponse;
+  }
  let markup = renderToString(
    <RemixServer context={remixContext} url={request.url} />
  );

  responseHeaders.set("Content-Type", "text/html");

  return new Response("<!DOCTYPE html>" + markup, {
    status: responseStatusCode,
    headers: responseHeaders,
  });
}

Sitemap

To generate sitemap, @balavishnuvj/remix-seo would need context of all your routes.

If you have already created a file to handle all root routes. If not, check above

Add config for your sitemap

import { EntryContext } from "remix";
import { generateSitemap } from "@balavishnuvj/remix-seo";

type Handler = (
  request: Request,
  remixContext: EntryContext
) => Promise<Response | null> | null;

export const otherRootRoutes: Record<string, Handler> = {
  "/sitemap.xml": async (request, remixContext) => {
    return generateSitemap(request, remixContext, {
      siteUrl: "https://balavishnuvj.com",
    });
  },
};

export const otherRootRouteHandlers: Array<Handler> = [
  ...Object.entries(otherRootRoutes).map(([path, handler]) => {
    return (request: Request, remixContext: EntryContext) => {
      if (new URL(request.url).pathname !== path) return null;

      return handler(request, remixContext);
    };
  }),
];

generateSitemap takes three params request, EntryContext, and SEOOptions.

Configuration

  • SEOOptions lets you configure the sitemap
export type SEOOptions = {
  siteUrl: string; // URL where the site is hosted, eg. https://balavishnuvj.com
  headers?: HeadersInit; // Additional headers
  /*
    eg:  
        headers: {
            "Cache-Control": `public, max-age=${60 * 5}`,
        },
  */
};
  • To not generate sitemap for a route
// in your routes/url-that-doesnt-need-sitemap
import { SEOHandle } from "@balavishnuvj/remix-seo";

export let loader: LoaderFunction = ({ request }) => {
  /**/
};

export const handle: SEOHandle = {
  getSitemapEntries: () => null,
};
  • To generate sitemap for dynamic routes
// routes/blog/$blogslug.tsx

export const handle: SEOHandle = {
  getSitemapEntries: async (request) => {
    const blogs = await db.blog.findMany();
    return blogs.map((blog) => {
      return { route: `/blog/${blog.slug}`, priority: 0.7 };
    });
  },
};

Robots

You can add this part of the root routes as did abovecheck above. Or else you can create a new file in your routes folder with robots[.txt].ts

To generate robots.txt

generateRobotsTxt([
  { type: "sitemap", value: "https://balavishnuvj.com/sitemap.xml" },
  { type: "disallow", value: "/admin" },
]);

generateRobotsTxt takes two arguments.

First one is array of policies

export type RobotsPolicy = {
  type: "allow" | "disallow" | "sitemap" | "crawlDelay" | "userAgent";
  value: string;
};

and second parameter RobotsConfig is for additional configuration

export type RobotsConfig = {
  appendOnDefaultPolicies?: boolean; // If default policies should used
  /*
  Default policy
    const defaultPolicies: RobotsPolicy[] = [
    {
        type: "userAgent",
        value: "*",
    },
    {
        type: "allow",
        value: "/",
    },
    ];
  */
  headers?: HeadersInit; // Additional headers
  /*
    eg:  
        headers: {
            "Cache-Control": `public, max-age=${60 * 5}`,
        },
  */
};

If you are using single function to create both sitemap and robots.txt

import { EntryContext } from "remix";
import { generateRobotsTxt, generateSitemap } from "@balavishnuvj/remix-seo";

type Handler = (
  request: Request,
  remixContext: EntryContext
) => Promise<Response | null> | null;

export const otherRootRoutes: Record<string, Handler> = {
  "/sitemap.xml": async (request, remixContext) => {
    return generateSitemap(request, remixContext, {
      siteUrl: "https://balavishnuvj.com",
      headers: {
        "Cache-Control": `public, max-age=${60 * 5}`,
      },
    });
  },
  "/robots.txt": async () => {
    return generateRobotsTxt([
      { type: "sitemap", value: "https://balavishnuvj.com/sitemap.xml" },
      { type: "disallow", value: "/admin" },
    ]);
  },
};

export const otherRootRouteHandlers: Array<Handler> = [
  ...Object.entries(otherRootRoutes).map(([path, handler]) => {
    return (request: Request, remixContext: EntryContext) => {
      if (new URL(request.url).pathname !== path) return null;

      return handler(request, remixContext);
    };
  }),
];
