A tiny library that adds asset pre-processor support to Django’s contrib.staticfiles.
The bundled contrib.staticfiles does most of what I want from an asset manager, but not quite all. Rather than replace it entirely with another asset manager, I wrote this little hack to add the missing piece. Now assets that need pre-processing (like LESS stylesheets, or Sprocketized JS files) get compiled dynamically in development and then written out as static files for serving in production.
- Seamleess integration with contrib.staticfiles: Continue to use the static template tag and collectstatic command as normal.
- Very simple API for defining new pre-processors.
- Not a single line of my code needs to run in production: once you’ve run collectstatic, its work is done.
