django-mediagenerator 1.11

Extensible media/asset manager for Django
django-mediagenerator is an asset manager app for Django. With django-mediagenerator you can combine and compress your JS and CSS files. It also takes care of automatically versioning your files (including images), so browsers will load an updated version when you change any of your files. This works by adding a version hash to the file name. That way you can still use HTTP caches.

An important advantage of the media generator is that it works in sandboxed hosting environments like App Engine.

With its backend API the media generator allows you to flexibly add new features and adjust it to your needs. It also comes with several backends pre-installed. For example, you can use Sass, Python (via pyjs/Pyjamas), and PyvaScript.

Also, the media generator provides a development mode in which files don't get combined and compressed. This simplifies debugging because you can easily see which file contains a bug. Moreover, some backends add extra debug information in development mode to further simplify debugging.
