==== Static files ====
 
Now we know how to create HTML within Django's templating language. For a good web application, though, you will probably want to embed stylesheets, scripts, images, and other files. How can we include static files such as these?
 
TODO: ls and copy static folder into mysite.bookmarks
 
Django automatically looks for a folder named 'static' inside any of your Django apps. You can also put static files in other places, such as inside /mysite/ directly. To do that, you would need to add the absolute path of the folder to STATICFILES_DIRS in settings.py.
 
We'll just leave our static files inside bookmarks/, for the sake of simplicity.
 
TODO: see how the old HTML looks here
 
Now let's add some more structure to our HTML templates to make them easier to style. First, base.html:
 
<source lang="html4strict">
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>My bookmarking app</title>
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Source+Sans+Pro:200,400,700,900' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/static/css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" charset="utf-8">
</head>
 
<body>
<div id="container">
<div id="header">
<div id="new-bookmark-widget">
<form>
<h3>New bookmark</h3>
<p><label>URL</label> <input></p>
<p><label>Title</label> <input></p>
<p><label>Tags (comma-separated)</label> <input></p>
<p><button>Submit</button>
</form>
</div>
<h1><a href="/">My bookmarking app</a></h1>
</div>
<div id="content">
<h2>{% block subheader %}{% endblock %}</h2>
{% block content %}
Sample content -- you should never see this, unless an inheriting template fails to have any content block!
{% endblock %}
</div>
<div id="footer">

</body>
</html>

And also index.html:
 
<source lang="html4strict">
{% block content %}
<ul class="bookmarks">
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">Bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jane Smith</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-29</span> | <span class="tags"><a href="">funny</a> <a href="">haha</a></span></div>
</li>
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">Another bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jeanne Doe</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-28</span></div>
</li>
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">A third bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jayne Cobb</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-28</span> | <span class="tags"><a href="">funny</a></span></div>
</li>
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">La la la bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jeanne Doe</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-28</span> | <span class="tags"><a href="">blah</a> <a href="">school</a></span></div>
</li>
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">Rhubarb rhubarb bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jeanne Doe</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-27</span></div>
</li>
</ul>
{% endblock %}
</source>
 
and tag.html:
 
<source lang="html4strict">
{% block content %}
<ul class="bookmarks">
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">Bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jane Smith</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-29</span> | <span class="tags"><a href="">funny</a> <a href="">haha</a></span></div>
</li>
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">Another bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jeanne Doe</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-28</span></div>
</li>
<li>
<a class="bookmark-link" href="">A third bookmark</a>
<div class="metadata"><span class="author">Posted by Jayne Cobb</span> | <span class="timestamp">2012-2-28</span> | <span class="tags"><a href="">funny</a></span></div>
</li>
</ul>
{% endblock %}
