In this talk we explain how you can use a Python library called Webassets to automatically compile your assets as you work. Automatically compiling your Less and Coffeescript files as they change will greatly simplify and accelerate your testing, so you can spend more time doing the fun stuff – writing code. Even better, Webassets scripts are simple Python scripts, meaning you can write more Python code.
For those using common frameworks like Django and Flask, we show how you can use Webassets built in hooks to make this process even more streamlined. We demonstrate how the hooks make cache busting a breeze.
