Sitemap helps Search Engine index your website. It give the search engine a list of all the links available.
If you don’t have a sitemap your website might not be indexed correctly and only some links will be shown in search result. Wintersmith is a really good static site generator. I have written a template for Wintersmith that generates the
sitemap.xml file so search engines can index your website. All you need to do is to clone this github repo and copy the
sitemap.json from the
contents directory and places it into your website source
contents directory. Next copy the
templates directory and place it in your website source
templates directory. This will automatically generate the sitemap required for your website.
