Thanks, Dude! This was handy. I extended it to use different locations (/static/ and /media/), instead of domains, but same concept and this helped...

No prob - glad it helped you out!

Unless Im mistaken this just uses two buckets, not mapping onto the one which IMHO is more desirable.

@madteckhead yep you're right. The purpose of this gist was to allow two separate buckets for media and static. If you only set DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE it will do the behavior you mention by default.

Is there a good way to migrate existing media to S3—something similar to ./manage collectstatic?
