Runs processes along with runserver
This app allows you to run external applications along with the runserver command. This is useful for example to run automatic compilation of your sass/less files without having to manually run sass --watch.
pip install django_runprocess
Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'runprocess' )
Add the commands you want to be executed in the RUNPROCESS_PROCESSES setting. For example, to automatically run sass --watch along with runserver, use the following:
SASS_DIR = os.path.join(STATIC_ROOT, 'sass') CSS_DIR = os.path.join(STATIC_ROOT, 'css') RUNPROCESS_PROCESSES = ( ('sass', '--watch', '%s:%s' % (SASS_DIR, CSS_DIR)), )
