Configure templates to render

To configure the templates that should be rendered as static files, add the STATIC_TEMPLATES setting to your configuration.

    ('some-template.html', 'rendered.html'),
    ('500.html', 'errors/500.html'),

The setting should be a iterable that returns tuples with to elements. The tuple’s first element is the template path, the second is the path inside settings.STATIC_ROOT where the rendered content should be stored.

Providing extra context to the templates

Remember that the templates are rendered using Django’s render_to_string. If you need extra context when rendering the templates, configure STATIC_TEMPLATES_CONTEXT as a dictionary.

    'DEBUG': False,
    'RAVEN_DSN': 'Some token'

Using a different renderer

If you want to change the way the templates are rendered, you can override the used renderer by configuring the STATIC_TEMPLATES_RENDERER setting.

By default, static_templates.renderer.Renderer is used. Feel free to sub-class and extend the functionality.

Rendering the templates

To render the templates, use the management command render_static_templates.

$ python render_static_templates
