A small extension to download css and js vendor files from CDNs and host them locally.

Project description



Install using pip:

pip install django-vendor-files

Add vendor_files to INSTALLED_APPS in your Django settings:


Put the vendor directory in STATICFILES_DIRS in your Django settings:

    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'vendor/'), 


  • stay first if you wont load vendor libs first
  • stay second after you own static if you wish ovveride (patch) vendor lib

Add a VENDOR setting to your Django settings, and add your vendor files with URL and SNI, e.g.:

    'jquery': {
        'url': '',
        'js': [
                # final url will be:
                'path': 'jquery.min.js', 
                'sri': 'sha512-894YE6QWD5I59HgZOGReFYm4dnWc1Qt5NtvYSaNcOP+u1T9qYdvdihz0PPSiiqn/+/3e7Jo4EaG7TubfWGUrMQ==',
    'bootstrap': {
        'url': '',
        'js': [
                'path': 'js/bootstrap.min.js',
                'sri': 'sha384-Tc5IQib027qvyjSMfHjOMaLkfuWVxZxUPnCJA7l2mCWNIpG9mGCD8wGNIcPD7Txa',
        'css': [
                'path': 'css/bootstrap.min.css',
                'sri': 'sha384-BVYiiSIFeK1dGmJRAkycuHAHRg32OmUcww7on3RYdg4Va+PmSTsz/K68vbdEjh4u',


Put {% load vendor_tags %} at the top of your Django template and the vendor tag , e.g.: {% vendor 'jquery' %}, somewhere in your HTML:

{% load staticfiles %}
{% load vendor_tags %}

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>{{ }}</title>
        {% vendor 'jquery' %}
        {% vendor 'bootstrap' %}

Extended tags, extract only js or css (can be usefull example for django-compressor):

{% vendor 'jquery' 'js' %}
# or you can use
{% vendor_js 'jquery' %}

{% vendor 'jquery' 'css' %}
# or you can use
{% vendor_css 'jquery' %}

Then, you have 2 options:

  1. To use a CDN, put VENDOR_CDN = True in your Django settings and the vendor tag will be replaced by a <link> or <script> tag using the URLs in the settings.

  2. To use a local copy, put VENDOR_CDN = False (or nothing at all) in your Django settings and the vendor tag will be replaced by a <link> or <script> tag using your STATIC_PATH. The files can be downloaded:

    python ./ download_vendor_files
