Handling django app media

Project Description

the intention of this application is to enable static app files (css, js, pics) in the app folder itself.

<application1>/media/<application1>/js/script.js <application2>/media/<application2>/js/script.js


To use this view in development you should add something like the following to if settings.DEBUG: urlpatterns += (r’^media/(?P<path>.*)$’, ‘’, {‘document_root’ : settings.MEDIA_ROOT})

For deployment there is a managament command called symlinkmedia that will create symlinks to each applications media directory in MEDIA_ROOT.

Now all apps in INSTALLED_APPS that have a “media” directory in them will be reachable as ‘/media/<application_name>/’.

You can then have the admin media files served by setting ADMIN_MEDIA_PREFIX = ‘/media/admin/’
