Looks for static files in the additional locations as a fallback

Project description

A simple extension that makes it possible to define the additional static locations your Flask application will traverse as a fallback.

Only works when app.debug is set to True.


Let’s have an example from the scratch:

>>> from flask.ext.staticify import mount_folders
>>> app.debug = True

# Ah, snap!
>>> app.test_client().get('/static/app.js')
<Response [404]>

...    os.path.join(app.root_path, 'tmp'),
...    ('prefix', 'path/to/folder')
>>> )
# Mounting will override the endpoint='static' view function
# to look also into the additional folders as a fallback.
>>> mount_folders(app, STATICIFY_FOLDERS)

# And that's it!
>>> app.test_client().get('/static/app.js')
<Response [200]>


mount_folders(app, locations)

A single top-level function where the all magic comes from.

an iterable of strings with the additional static locations. It also accepts a 2-tuple of the form (prefix, folder) and using a prefix is a way to connect specific urls with a folder directly.


$ pip install Flask-Staticify
