The fast collectstatic for Django-apps with S3 as storage backend.

Custom management command that compares the MD5 sum and etag from S3 and if the two are the same skips file copy. This makes running collect static MUCH faster if you are using git as a source control system which updates timestamps.


Install the app using pip:

pip install Collectfast

Make sure you have this in your settings file and add 'collectfast' to your INSTALLED_APPS:

STATICFILES_STORAGE = "storages.backends.s3boto.S3BotoStorage" AWS_PRELOAD_METADATA = True INSTALLED_APPS = (

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 25)

Unexpected indentation.
… 'collectfast',

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 27)

Block quote ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.



Collectfast overrides Django's builtin collectstatic command so just run python manage.py collectstatic as normal. You can disable collectfast by using the --ignore-etag option.
