Runs processes along with runserver

Project Description


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:


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')

    ('sass', '--watch', '%s:%s' % (SASS_DIR, CSS_DIR)),
