Django is the most popular Python-based web framework for a while now. Django is powerful, robust, full of capabilities and surrounded by a supportive community.

In this video, we are going to take a look into how to set up static file serving in our app, such as CSS, javascript, images etc... in our simple Django application. which we built and deployed in Part 1 of the series

Static files on Django should be served by nginx directly rather than our Django app. So you need to add a few lines to your nginx configuration, to tell where your static files are. I have tried to explain things neatly in this video. feel free to as any doubts.

Let me know the suggestions, thoughts & the doubts in the comments. Subscribe to the channel & Share this with your friends & colleagues
