Installation

Downloading

As usual with Composer packages, there are two ways to install:

You can install via Composer. Pick the "master" as the version of the package.

composer require cybercog/robots-txt

Or add the following to your composer.json in the require section and then run composer update to install it.

{
    "require": {
        "cybercog/robots-txt": "^1.0"
    }
}

Usage

Laravel

Once installed via Composer you need to add the service provider. Do this by adding the following to the 'providers' section of the application config (usually app/config/app.php):

Cog\RobotsTxt\Providers\RobotsTxtServiceProvider::class,

The quickest way to use Robots is to just setup a callback-style route for robots.txt in your /app/routes.php file.

<?php

Route::get('robots.txt', function() {

    // If on the live server, serve a nice, welcoming robots.txt.
    if (App::environment() == 'production')
    {
        RobotsTxt::addUserAgent('*');
        RobotsTxt::addSitemap('sitemap.xml');
    } else {
        // If you're on any other server, tell everyone to go away.
        RobotsTxt::addDisallow('*');
    }

    return Response::make(RobotsTxt::generate(), 200, array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'));
});

Native PHP

Add a rule in your .htaccess for robots.txt that points to a new script/template/controller/route/etc.

The code would look something like:

<?php
use Cog\RobotsTxt\RobotsTxt;

$robotsTxt = new RobotsTxt();
$robotsTxt->addUserAgent('*');
$robotsTxt->addSitemap('sitemap.xml');

header("HTTP/1.1 200 OK");
echo $robotsTxt->generate();

And that's it! You can show different robots.txt files depending on how simple or complicated you want it to be.
