A Django app to copy static media files over to a remote place, optionally minifying css and js.

Project description

New in version 0.6: Added checksum-based selective copying of files. Fixed several bugs relating to combining files. Changed how application media was copied so it will override its own changes.

New in version 0.5: Added a context processor to add STATIC_URL to the request context as well as a setting for STATIC_ROOT. This allows you to store your regular media separately from uploaded media (which is in MEDIA_ROOT). Also added a setting to exclude apps from copying their media and a specialized way of handling django admin media copying.

New in version 0.4: Fixed a bug where copying multiple directories into the same directory with the purge options would only allow the last copy to work. Now multiple source directories can be copied into one destination, with each successive copy potentially overwriting the previous files.

New in version 0.3: Added support for external javascript compression commands, such as Google’s compressor.

New in version 0.2: Ability to combine multiple files into a new file before copying and/or compressing them.

This app provides a way to copy and consolidate static media files to one or more configured locations. This is incredibly helpful if you have your media served from another server.

It consists of a management command, copy_static_media, and several settings including:

  • STATIC_MEDIA_COPY_PATHS A tuple of dictionaries specifying the from/to for copying files.

  • STATIC_MEDIA_PURGE_OLD_FILES Should old files be purged from the destination directory.

  • STATIC_MEDIA_COMPRESS_CSS Should CSS files be compressed during copy using the included port of YUI Compressor

  • STATIC_MEDIA_COMPRESS_JS Should javascript files be compressed during copy using the included python port of Douglas Crockford’s jsmin

  • STATIC_MEDIA_APP_MEDIA_PATH Where (and if) should the application media be copied to automatically.

  • STATIC_MEDIA_FILE_COMBINATIONS Configuration of combining multiple files into one.


  • Allow lossless image compression for pngs, gifs and jpegs using external tools like optiPNG.

  • Create a template tag to minify inline CSS and javascript with caching
