SEO Renderer

Pub

A flutter plugin (under development) to render text, link, image widgets as html elements for SEO purpose.

Created specifically for issue github.com/flutter/flutter/issues/46789 It will automatic detect the crawler using regex and navigator userAgent and add the HtmlElement you choose to the DOM.

All PR's are welcome :)

Getting Started

  • Add this to your pubspec.yaml

    dependencies:
      seo_renderer: ^0.6.0
    
  • Get the package from Pub:

    flutter packages get
    
  • Import it in your file

    import 'package:seo_renderer/seo_renderer.dart';
    

Usage

It's required to add a RobotDetector to detect if page is visited by a robot and add seoRouteObserver to observe when widgets change their visibility. To do this simply wrap MaterialApp within RobotDetector and add seoRouteObserver in navigatorObservers:

runApp(
  RobotDetector(
    debug: true, // you can set true to enable robot mode
    child: MaterialApp(
      home: MyApp(),
      navigatorObservers: [seoRouteObserver],
    ),
  ),
);

For more complex projects it's recommended to add these lines in index.html which will force html web renderer in case robot is detected. It's because canvaskit has some stricter limits and potenitally can break.

<body>
  ...
  <script>
    const regExp = new RegExp("bot|google|baidu|bing|msn|teoma|slurp|yandex", "i");
    if (regExp.test(navigator.userAgent)) {
      window.flutterWebRenderer = "html";
    }
  </script>
  ...
</body>

TextRenderer

To render html text element above a child you pass Text, RichText as the child or simply set the text.

TextRenderer(
  child: Text(
    'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.',
  ),
)

TextRenderer(
  text: 'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.',
  child: CustomWidget(),
)

Optionally you can change the html element between <h1> to <h6> and <p> by setting style. Default value is TextRendererStyle.paragraph.

TextRenderer(
  style: TextRendererStyle.paragraph,
  child: Text(
    'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.',
  ),
)

TextRenderer(
  style: TextRendererStyle.header1,
  child: Text(
    'Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.',
  ),
)

LinkRenderer

To render html link element above a child set text and href.

LinkRenderer(
  text: 'Try Flutter',
  href: 'https://www.flutter.dev',
  child: ...,
)

ImageRenderer

To render html image element above a child set alt and pass Image.network(...), Image.asset(...), Image.memory(...) as the child or simply set the src.

ImageRenderer(
  alt: 'Network Image',
  child: Image.network('https://fakeimg.pl/300x300/?text=Network'),
)

ImageRenderer(
  alt: 'Network Image',
  src: 'https://fakeimg.pl/300x300/?text=Network',
  child: CustomWidget(),
)
