Bringing sitemaps to WordPress

It’s not often one can say they contributed to 32% of the web, but yes today is that day. I’m proud to have been part of the HumanMade team that worked with Google on the first iteration of the effort to bring sitemap functionality into WordPress!

Sitemaps help WordPress sites become more discoverable by providing search engines with a map of content that should be indexed.

WordPress 5.5 might ship sitemaps out of the box, and will make millions of sites easier to index, and provide a foundation for plugin authors to extend.

This should help increase the relevancy of information from WordPress sites in search engines.

I have setup a new site, it’s still WIP as far as features is concerned. However I’d like to know if I’ve broken anything for you. Any 404 page not found errors should redirect to my old site. Thanks.

Repoman 0.1

Repoman is a script to export and import a list of git repositories using an intermediate repoman.lst file.

When exporting, Repoman scans the working directory for .git folders and save its relative path with the git remote.

When importing, repoman will restore this directory structure and clone each repository.

Why use this?

It’s considered bad practice to use cloud sync solutions to sync working copies.

Repoman helps you work on the same projects on multiple devices, by syncing repoman.lst instead.
