django-storages provides a variety of storage backends in a single library. Unfortunately it hasn’t seen a release since March of 2013 despite widespread usage and support for the library.
django-storages-redux is a Python 3 & Django 1.8+ compatible fork of the original library that’s thankfully seeing lots of ongoing maintenance and updates.
Switching over was fairly painless, with just a couple method signatures needing updates.
I highly recommend switching over if you haven’t already.
If you use the popular Django Compressor package, it’s finally getting a few much needed updates including the latest rJSmin, support for rCSSMin, as well as a variety of bug fixes.
I contributed support for yUglify now that YUI Compressor has been officially deprecated (although it lives on under a new contributor model). You can use the new filters like this:
||COMPRESS_CSS_FILTERS = ['compressor.filters.yuglify.YUglifyCSSFilter']
||COMPRESS_JS_FILTERS = ['compressor.filters.yuglify.YUglifyJSFilter']
You can install the latest development version using Pip:
