This project aims at providing a compromise between dynamic error pages for Django (that use template tags etc and therefore potentially error too) and having to write static error pages by hand.
It does so by providing a management command that can be invoked to turn a dynamic Django template into a static HTML page with no template tags whatsoever in it.
Note that this means that every time you change your error pages, you need to re-run this script. Ideally this is part of your deploy process.
pip install django-statictemplate inside your virtualenv.
statictemplate to your
django-statictemplate does not require any configuration. by default.
django-statictemplate overrides the configured middlewares for
enhanced compatibility and to avoid incompatibilities.
However this may not be always feasible: if you need a specific set of middlewares to be loaded set:
STATICTEMPLATE_OVERRIDE_MIDDLEWARE = False
in you settings files.
Please note that
django-statictemplate has not been tested with every
possible middleware, thus you may encounter failures and strange behaviors
especially fi you use middlewares that changes the response type.
python manage.py statictemplate dynamic_500.html > 500.html
python manage.py statictemplate dynamic_500.html -f 500.html
The management command renders a template given by name (standard Django template name resolution applies) and writes the output to stdout or to a file.
template: standard django template name to render
language: sets the client django_language cookie to render page in the given language
extra_request: extra parameters injected in the request. Parameters must be serialized in querystring format (e.g.:
'variable=value&variable=value'; please note the single quote ' to protect ampersand &).
--file: file destionation for command output
