Project description

A tiny library that adds asset pre-processor support to Django’s contrib.staticfiles.

The bundled contrib.staticfiles does most of what I want from an asset manager, but not quite all. Rather than replace it entirely with another asset manager, I wrote this little hack to add the missing piece. Now assets that need pre-processing (like LESS stylesheets, or Sprocketized JS files) get compiled dynamically in development and then written out as static files for serving in production.


  • Seamleess integration with contrib.staticfiles: Continue to use the static template tag and collectstatic command as normal.

  • Ships with support for LESS stylesheets and Sprockets-like JavaScript concatenation and minification.

  • Very simple API for defining new pre-processors.

  • Not a single line of my code needs to run in production: once you’ve run collectstatic, its work is done.
