Integrate django_compressor with celery

Project Description

A extension of django_compressor which compress the files by celery workers. The system behind the scene is very simple. The first request on a page with a {% compress %} block will create a celery task which compress this specific block. Instead to wait for the compressed version the first request gets the uncompressed version. After the compress task is finished compressor will deliver the compressed code from the cache directory.

  • Support all features of template inheritance
  • No offline compression by deployment


  • Install as usual django-compressor and celery for django
  • Install django-compressor-celery
  • Add compressor_celery to your installed apps
  • Replace in your template {% load compress %} with {% load compress_celery %}


If you want to change some task options you should use the settings key COMPRESS_CELERY_TASK_CONFIG which contains a dict with the options. (Inspired by django-celery-email)


    'name': 'compressor.lets_compress',
    'queue': 'compressor',
    'ignore_result': False

The default config should work well for the most use cases.
