Source code for django.views.static

Views and functions for serving static files. These are only to be used
during development, and SHOULD NOT be used in a production setting.

def serve(request, path, document_root=None, show_indexes=False):
    Serve static files below a given point in the directory structure.

    To use, put a URL pattern such as::

        from django.views.static import serve

        url(r'^(?P<path>.*)$', serve, {'document_root': '/path/to/my/files/'})

    in your URLconf. You must provide the ``document_root`` param. You may
    also set ``show_indexes`` to ``True`` if you'd like to serve a basic index
    of the directory.  This index view will use the template hardcoded below,
    but if you'd like to override it, you can create a template called
    path = posixpath.normpath(path).lstrip('/')
    fullpath = Path(safe_join(document_root, path))
    if fullpath.is_dir():
        if show_indexes:
            return directory_index(path, fullpath)

    if not fullpath.exists():
        raise Http404(_('"%(path)s" does not exist') % {'path': fullpath})
    # Respect the If-Modified-Since header.

def was_modified_since(header=None, mtime=0, size=0):
    Was something modified since the user last downloaded it?

      This is the value of the If-Modified-Since header.  If this is None,
      I'll just return True.

      This is the modification time of the item we're talking about.

      This is the size of the item we're talking about.
