Serve static files and django templates in current folder, for prototyping
This is a command line utility that django-izes the current folder. This is primarily for prototyping.
Lets say the current folder contains a bunch of html file, this utility runs a django server, and makes the files available through it. The html files can use django’s powerfull template inheritance.
If there is a folder named static in current folder, that content of that folder will also become available on /static/ url.
This utility maps request to /favicon.ico to /static/favicon.ico.
Also if there is a ajax.yaml file in current folder, this utility will look for request the requested path in the yaml file, and if it exists, appropriate JSON will be returned.
Further if file names views.py or forms.py exist, the utility “imports” them, and if those files use importd style “decorated” views or forms, they too become available (example).
Take a look at an example folder, and compare it with the test suite.
