A cleaner way to manage production vs local static assets for django.
from django.conf import settings
def static_file(request):
This static context processor makes the {{ STATIC_FILE }}
template tag available to any view you create, without explicitly having to add it.
Useful if you want to manage local vs. deployment assets without using the staticfiles
module provided by django ( and its default {{ STATIC_URL }} template tag ) -- which is
a haphazard way of managing things in a single application environment.

jQuery contextLoader - a DOM - contextual loader for your web app!
View gist:4601197
createLoadPane is a simple function that handles creation and positioning,
as well as text options for adding "contextual loaders" into the dom --
a loader that covers a certain area where content may be loading via ajax.
This works with the box-model and takes the basic discrepencies into account.
