django-fresh will auto-refresh your browser whenever you update to any of the files in your project. Very useful for development, not intended for production!
How It Works
- Install fresh by running
pip install django-fresh.
SITE_ROOTvariable set to the absolute path of your projects files.
This will dynamically grab the location of your settings file and make it your site root, django-fresh will recursively watch everything in the settings file's folder.
SITE_ROOT = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
Note: Be sure you
import os before using the above code or you'll get an
Optional Custom Settings
You have two customizable choices:
FRESH_ACCEPTED_EXTENSIONSis an array that is checked when files are updated, if an extension is not in the list it won't trigger a refresh.
FRESH_IGNORED_PAGESis an array that is checked before injecting the refresh code, if page in list it won't have the code injected.
FRESH_ACCEPTED_EXTENSIONS = [ '.py', '.html', '.js', '.css', ]
FRESH_IGNORED_PAGES = [ '/admin/', '/admin_keywords_submit/', ]
django-fresh checks to see if
True, if it is
False it doesn't do
anything to prevent you from accidently including it in production.
