Installation

You can install the package via composer:

$ composer require spatie/laravel-robots-middleware

Usage

By default, the middleware enables indexing on all pages. You'll probably want to inherit your own class containing you application's indexing rule handler.

// app/Http/Middleware/MyRobotsMiddleware.php

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Spatie\RobotsMiddleware\RobotsMiddleware;

class MyRobotsMiddleware extends RobotsMiddleware
{
    /**
     * @return string|bool
     */
    protected function shouldIndex(Request $request)
    {
        return $request->segment(1) !== 'admin';
    }
}

Next, simply register the newly created class in your middleware stack.

// app/Http/Kernel.php

class Kernel extends HttpKernel
{
    protected $middleware = [
        // ...
        \App\Http\Middleware\MyRobotsMiddleware::class,
    ];

    // ...
}

That's it! Responses will now always have an x-robots-tag in their headers, containing an all or none value.
