blog  Setting up the new 'staticfiles' app on Django 1.3.

Jan 2012

Even if I've been using Django 1.3 for a while now, I've been holding off on some of it new features, such as the new way to handle static files via a new app called (guess what) staticfiles . Essentially, what the new static app does is allowing you to leave all static files within the /static directory of each of the django apps you're using. This is for development; when you're deploying and (most likely) want these files to be served via a (faster) separate server process, the staticfiles app helps you gather all of them into a predefined directory by using a handy shell command.
