Switch from jingo-minify to django-pipeline for building and cache-busting assets.
The compressed assets should be stored in a STATICFILES_DIRS directory.

The name $path-to-images is more generic. https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/commit/a0731758fdc8f9414fa9019d8c580c34d90c4dbb Bug 1139490: Replace /media/img with variable Direct references to /media/img are updated to use the $path-to-images variable instead. The path will be updated when we switch to django-pipeline, so using a variable now will make the switch a little easier. https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/commit/82056cd2678ec60d95f1cc22f4d889b11ced2357 Bug 1139490: Replace /media/ with variable This will make updating the path a little bit easier in the future, which will help us switch to django-pipeline. https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/commit/7942730fb1f4ce1525628f3f77a16f1c80fa0995 Bug 1139490: Remove asset URL from comment The URL will change when we switch to django-pipeline. To be as generic as possible, let's just mention the filename. https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/commit/58dae9a95be2f5fc1bfe4ed377baff0fbdc51c2a Merge pull request #3389 from openjck/bug-1139490-update-stylus-paths Bug 1139490: Improve path-related code in Stylus
@openjck -- what are the next steps on this? What help will you need from IT?
At a high level, my task list looks something like this: 1. Fix hardcoded paths in source (in progress) 2. Host assets at /static/assets 3. Install and use django-pipeline We could use some help from IT on steps 2 and 3. For step 2, IT will need to manually set up production redirects from /media to /static/assets (see bug 1145793 for more on why we can't do this ourselves). For part 3, we may need to switch from clean-css to CSSMin. If we do, IT will need to install CSSMin on stage and production. Does that sound about right :jezdez? I wonder if IT would also need to do something special to get /static/assets hosted. In the last pull request , there was an issue hosting /static/assets/compressed/ locally.  https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/pull/3219

This allows ./manage.py collectstatic to compile stylesheets on deploys.
Hello Maybe I missed something but to get the site running again I had to manually install requirements in the vm through vagrant ssh. Was there a better way? I naively tried to provision but it didn't do the trick. Other question: is there any chance this commit resolved bug 1175618 too? (trying to find why the bug is not here anymore) Thanks!
