PHP class to parse robots.txt rules according to Google, Yandex, W3C and The Web Robots Pages specifications.

Full list of supported specifications (and what's not supported, yet) are available in our Wiki.

Supported directives:

  • User-agent
  • Allow
  • Disallow
  • Sitemap
  • Host
  • Cache-delay
  • Clean-param
  • Crawl-delay
  • Request-rate (in progress)
  • Visit-time (in progress)

Installation

The library is available for install via Composer package. To install via Composer, please add the requirement to your composer.json file, like this:

composer require t1gor/robots-txt-parser

You can find out more about Composer here: https://getcomposer.org/

Usage example

Creating parser instance
use t1gor\RobotsTxtParser\RobotsTxtParser;

# from string
$parser = new RobotsTxtParser("User-agent: * \nDisallow: /");

# from local file
$parser = new RobotsTxtParser(fopen('some/robots.txt'));

# or a remote one (make sure it's allowed in your php.ini)
# even FTP should work (but this is not confirmed)
$parser = new RobotsTxtParser(fopen('http://example.com/robots.txt'));
Logging parsing process

We are implementing LoggerAwareInterface from PSR, so it should work out of the box with any logger supporting that standard. Please see below for Monolog example with Telegram bot:

use Monolog\Handler\TelegramBotHandler;
use Monolog\Logger;
use PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase;
use Psr\Log\LogLevel;
use t1gor\RobotsTxtParser\RobotsTxtParser;

$monologLogger = new Logger('robot.txt-parser');
$monologLogger->setHandler(new TelegramBotHandler('api-key', 'channel'));

$parser = new RobotsTxtParser(fopen('some/robots.txt'));
$parser->setLogger($monologLogger);

Most log entries we have are of LogLevel::DEBUG, but there might also be some LogLevel::WARNINGS where it is appropriate.

Parsing non UTF-8 encoded files
use t1gor\RobotsTxtParser\RobotsTxtParser;

/** @see EncodingTest for more details */
$parser = new RobotsTxtParser(fopen('market-yandex-Windows-1251.txt', 'r'), 'Windows-1251');

Contributing

First of all - thank you for your interest and a desire to help! If you found an issue and know how to fix it, please submit a pull request to the dev branch. Please do not forget the following:

  • Your fixed issue should be covered with tests (we are using phpUnit)
  • Please mind the code climate recommendations. It some-how helps to keep things simpler, or at least seems to :)
  • Following the coding standard would also be much appreciated (4 tabs as an indent, camelCase, etc.)

I would really appreciate if you could share the link to your project that is utilizing the lib.
