This is a Django app that provides helpers for uploading static files.

It is based off of but only uploads all the files in the collected STATIC_ROOT to S3 using the storages.backends.s3boto.S3BotoStorage storage backend in the django-storages app.


  • Use your favorite Python packaging tool to install uploadstatic from PyPI, e.g.:

    pip install django-uploadstatic
  • Added "uploadstatic" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting:

        # ...
  • Set your STATIC_URL setting to the URL that handles serving static files from S3:

    STATIC_URL = ""
  • Once you are ready to upload all static files that have been collecte in your site's STATIC_ROOT, use the uploadstatic management command:

    python uploadstatic

    Then your files will be accessible from the STATIC_URL setting.
