Serve production static files with Django.

Project description

This is a modification of the original dj-static by Kenneth Reitz (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dj-static)

This is a simple Django middleware utility that allows you to properly serve static assets from production with a WSGI server like Gunicorn.

Django doesn’t recommend the production use of its static file server for a number of reasons. There exists, however, a lovely WSGI application aptly named Static.

It is suitable for the production use of static file serving, unlike Django.

Usage

Configure your static assets in settings.py:

STATIC_ROOT = 'staticfiles'
STATIC_URL = '/static/'

Then, update your wsgi.py file to use dj-static:

from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
from dj_static import Cling

application = Cling(get_wsgi_application())

or:

from django.core.wsgi import get_wsgi_application
from dj_static import Cling
import static

class BaseCling(static.Cling):
    ...

application = Cling(get_wsgi_application(), cling_class=BaseCling)
