django-assetfiles 0.8.0

Drop-in replacement for staticfiles which handles asset processing.

Django Assetfiles
=================

Django Assetfiles is a drop-in replacement for staticfiles which handles asset processing.


Installation
------------

1. Install package from PyPi:

``` sh
$ pip install django-assetfiles
```

2. Replace `'django.contrib.staticfiles'` in `INSTALLED_APPS` with `'assetfiles'`:

``` python
INSTALLED_APPS = (
# ...
# 'django.contrib.staticfiles',
'assetfiles',
)
```

3. That's it! Assetfiles will default to your [Staticfiles settings]https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/staticfiles/)


Usage
-----

1. Add an asset file that should be processed:

``` scss
// static/css/main.scss
$color: red;

body {
color: $color;
}
```

2. Add a link to the processed CSS file in your template (you can use standard Staticfiles conventions):

``` html+django
{% load staticfiles %}
<link href="{% static 'css/main.css' %}" rel="stylesheet">
```

Assetfiles will automatically serve up the processed version of `main.scss` at the static url of `/static/css/main.css`.

4. To serve assets in development, either use `runserver` as normal or add the following to your `urls.py`:

``` python
from assetfiles.urls import assetfiles_urlpatterns

# ... the rest of your URLconf goes here ...

urlpatterns += assetfiles_urlpatterns()
```

5. For deployment, run `collectstatic` as usual and Assetfiles will process and copy over the assets:

``` sh
$ python manage.py collectstatic
$ cat public/css/main.css
body {
color: red; }
```
