Webpack Robots.txt

A webpack plugin for generating robots.txt files.

Why is this plugin useful

When you have multiple environments such as dev, qa and production to want to ensure your non-production environments are not exposed to search engines such as Google.

This plugin allows you to include this in your environment settings to generate a file.

Install the plugin

npm install --save-dev @tanepiper/robots-webpack-plugin

How to I use this plugin?

In your webpack config:

const RobotsPlugin = require('@tanepiper/robots-webpack-plugin');

const webpackConfig = {
  entry: 'src/index.js',
  output: {
    path: '/public',
    filename: 'index.js'
  },
  plugins: [new RobotsPlugin()]
};

The default output is an Allow directive for all user agents. To configure, pass in an array to userAgents option. Each one is an object with a name:string, disallow:array and allow:array in any combination.

There is also the sitemap options which will output a Sitemap directive at the end. Just provide a full url to the sitemap file.

plugins: [new RobotsPlugin({
  sitemap: 'https://example.com/sitemap.xml',
  userAgents: [{
    name: '*',
    disallow: ['/', '/cgi-bin'],
    allow: ['/blog']
  }, {
   name: 'Googlebot',
   disallow: ['/cgi-bin', '/some-path'],
   allow: ['/']
 }]
})]
