Hey Guys,

In this tute, we will discuss how to create dynamic sitemap in laravel. Here you will learn how to create dynamic xml sitemap in laravel. you can see how to generate sitemap in laravel. This tutorial will give you a simple example of laravel create sitemap dynamic automatically. Let's see below example laravel generate sitemap.xml.

A sitemap is a file that contains a list of all the pages on a website, organized in a hierarchical structure. It is intended to help search engines and users navigate and understand the structure of a website's content.

In this example, we will create a posts table with a title, slug, and body. Then, we will create a factory for generating dummy posts. Finally, we will generate an XML file and list all the URLs for the posts. This is a very basic example, so let's follow along, and you will have a sitemap file for your website that you can submit to the webmaster's tool.

You can use this example with laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9, laravel 10 and laravel 11 versions.

Let's follow below steps:

Step 1: Install Laravel

This step is not required; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Create Post Migration and Model

In this step, we will create migration and model. So let's run below command to create posts table.

php artisan make:migration create_posts_table

Next, simple update below code to migration file.



use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

return new class extends Migration



* Run the migrations.


* @return void


public function up(): void


Schema::create('posts', function (Blueprint $table) {









* Reverse the migrations.


* @return void


public function down(): void





Then run created new migration with below command:

php artisan migrate

Now, run below command to create Post model.

php artisan make:model Post

Then update following code to Post model.



namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Post extends Model


use HasFactory;

protected $fillable = [

'title', 'slug', 'body'



Step 3: Create Post Factory

In this step, we will create Post factory class and generate dummy records using tinker command. so let's run below command to create post factory.

php artisan make:factory PostFactory

Next, copy below code and update PostFactory.php file.



namespace Database\Factories;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\Factory;

use Illuminate\Support\Str;

use App\Models\Product;


* @extends \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\Factory<\App\Models\Product>


class ProductFactory extends Factory



* The name of the factory's corresponding model.


* @var string


protected $model = Product::class;


* Define the model's default state.


* @return array


public function definition(): array


return [

'name' => $this->faker->name,

'slug' => Str::slug($this->faker->name),

'detail' => $this->faker->text,




Then simply run tinker command and create dummy posts.

php artisan tinker


Step 4: Create Route

In this step, we will create one route sitemap.xml. so let's add it.



use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\SitemapController;



| Web Routes



| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!



Route::get('sitemap.xml', [SitemapController::class, 'index']);

Step 5: Create Controller

In this step, we have to create new controller as SitemapController with index(). we will get all posts and pass to blade file. we will return response as xml file. so let's update follow code:



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\Post;

use Illuminate\Http\Response;

class SitemapController extends Controller



* Write code on Method


* @return response()


public function index(): Response


$posts = Post::latest()->get();

return response()->view('sitemap', [

'posts' => $posts

])->header('Content-Type', 'text/xml');



Step 6: Create View File

In Last step, let's create sitemap.blade.php for display all posts and put following code:


<?php echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>'; ?>

<urlset xmlns="">

@foreach ($posts as $post)


<loc>{{ url('/') }}/post/{{ $post->slug }}</loc>

<lastmod>{{ $post->created_at->tz('UTC')->toAtomString() }}</lastmod>
