Using jingo and django_compressor but miss offline compression?

Project Description

(c) Peter Bengtsson, <>, 2012 License: MIT

For elitists (e.g. me) who use [jingo]( to connect jinja2 with Django a major drawback is that you can’t do offline compression if you use [django_compressor](

The compress command that comes with django_compressor only works for regular Django templates. :( Note though, that you can happily use jingo with django_compressor but it only works its magic during runtime. This package aims to solve that with a new command called compress_jingo.

To install

First install it by:

` pip install django-jingo-offline-compressor `

To start with, this assumes that you have django_compressor and jingo set up and working.

Add jingo_offline_compressor to your INSTALLED_APPS.

To run

Just like you’d run regular django_compressor you now run:

` ./ compress_jingo `

And remember, unless you have COMPRESS_OFFLINE = True in your settings you might have to do:

` ./ compress_jingo --force `

That should now have created all the minified and concatenated files in your STATIC_ROOT in a sub-directory called CACHE.

Note: If you have other apps in INSTALLED_APPS that have been added to JINGO_EXCLUDE_APPS some of their templates might actually be included in warnings when you run compress_jingo. Just ignore at will.

What’s next

It’s early days but hopefully if this stabilize and prove its existence. Hopefully it can lead to a decent refactor and to have tests so it can be patched upstream to django_compressor. Hint hint @jezdez, keep an eye on me :)
