django-gulp 3.0.0

Run your gulp tasks with runserver and collectstatic

django-gulp overrides ./manage.py runserver and ./manage.py collectstatic so that they also run your gulp tasks.

I’ve used this in conjunction with watchify and livereload in gulp, so that my simple unadorned runserver automatically watches and compiles new JavaScript files with browserify and live reloads new CSS that’s been automatically compiled from SASS.

Installation

Add "django_gulp" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this, making sure that it comes before django.contrib.staticfiles (or other apps that override runserver or collectstatic in the list if they’re listed):

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    'django_gulp',
    ...
)

Now when you run ./manage.py runserver or ./manage.py collectstatic your gulp tasks will run as well!

Settings

GULP_PRODUCTION_COMMAND defaults to gulp build --production. GULP_DEVELOP_COMMAND defaults to gulp.

Heroku

django-gulp works on Heroku! You’ll just need to use buildpack-multi and make sure your .buildpacks file looks like this:

https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-nodejs.git
https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-python.git

To use buildback-multi set your configuration like so:

$ heroku config:set BUILDPACK_URL=https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-multi.git

Example output

$ ./manage.py runserver
