Note: This concerns django 1.3 but the tags does not yet exist.

We have a couple of apps, including 3rd party apps, that have the 'static' files in 'media' dirs. These files aren't found with collectstatic in django 1.3. With this snippet they will be.

To use it:

  • paste the code in a file e.g. yourproject/finders.py.

  • include the finder in settings.STATICFILES_FINDERS:

STATICFILES_FINDERS = ( 'django.contrib.staticfiles.finders.FileSystemFinder', 'django.contrib.staticfiles.finders.AppDirectoriesFinder', 'yourproject.finders.AppMediaDirectoriesFinder',

)

  • ./manage.py collectstatic -n -l

    source_dir = 'media'


class AppMediaDirectoriesFinder(AppDirectoriesFinder):
    storage_class = AppMediaStorage
