Using jingo and django_compressor but miss offline compression?

For elitists (e.g. me) who use [jingo](https://github.com/jbalogh/jingo) to connect jinja2 with Django a major drawback is that you can’t do offline compression if you use [django_compressor](https://github.com/jezdez/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.
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.
Just like you’d run regular django_compressor you now run:
` ./manage.py compress_jingo `
And remember, unless you have COMPRESS_OFFLINE = True in your settings you might have to do:
` ./manage.py 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.
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 :)
