django serving static files


In order to serve static files, you need to configure settings.py.  In this example, say we are hosting our static files under a folder called 'static' (and app) with a filename called index.html.


TEMPLATES = [
    {
        'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
        'DIRS': ['static', 'app'],
        'APP_DIRS': True,
        'OPTIONS': {
            'context_processors': [
                'django.template.context_processors.debug',
                'django.template.context_processors.request',
                'django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth',
                'django.contrib.messages.context_processors.messages',
            ],
        },
    },
]

And finally set your "urls.py" 

from django.conf.urls import url
from django.views.generic.base import TemplateView

urlpatterns = [
    #url(r'^$', views.index, name='index2'),
    url(r'^$', TemplateView.as_view(template_name='index.html')),
]


Please note : You should always use default web server to serve static files. The code above is best used for development purposes only.
