ASP.NET5 MVC XML Sitemap Middleware
This post is about creating a XML Sitemap middleware in ASP.NET 5 MVC 6. Sitemaps provide a way of informing search engines about pages in your site. For small websites you could probably generate an XML sitemap file manually. For large sites with dynamic content, a programmatic approach is required. Recently there was some discussion on ASP.NET forum regarding how to create a dynamic sitemap based on the ontrollers and action methods. In this post I am building a middleware, which intercepts request for sitemap.xml file (which doesn’t exists) and returns xml based on contoller classes and action methods. Since it is difficult to get application url in ASP.NET5, it is provided as a configuraion parameter.
