Asset Management

grouprise assets are compiled during build time. If you want to use additional assets you can add them via the theming mechanism (overriding templates). You should as well adjust the CSP directives.

Adjusting CSP directives

If you add new assets (e.g. scripts oder styles) to your setup, you have to check your CSP setup. See the Django-CSP documentation for all options.

Local external assets are allowed by default. If you want to add assets from another host, add something to your config like:



You can also use inline scripts in local templates:

CSP_SCRIPT_SRC += ("'sha256-0123456789abdcef'",)

Use Sentry to track CSP errors:


Overriding Styles

FIXME: Revise this section after adding theming support.

If you want to override styles or colors you can do that by adding a custom stylesheet. The easiest way to do this is to add the following line to your local configuration (or /etc/grouprise/

from core.assets import add_style_reference

This will add a stylesheet reference to /stadt/static/stadt/custom.css. On your local machine this matches the $PROJECT_DIR/build/static/custom.css path. On a production server you would add a configuraton to the webserver that creates an alias for the mentioned path to the local filesystem. A simple nginx example:

location /stadt/static/stadt/custom.css {
    alias /var/www/custom.css;

Take a look at the next section about style variables to learn about easy style overrides with CSS variables.

Note: Please refrain vom using the add_style_inline function from the core.assets module as it will break JavaScript-generated inline-styles in HTML.

Style Variables

To ease the process of overriding styles, grouprise supports CSS variables where applicable. CSS variables are a nice thing because with a single rule you can override a setting on the entire platform. Please mind that support for these type of variables is a browser feature and rather new, so you may still want to override individual styles depending on your target audience.

Supported Variables

The following variables are supported:

--color-primary : used throughout the platform as brand color. determines the appearance of links, buttons, focus rings, etc.

-color-primary-dark : used for active states where --color-primary is used. if you override --color-primary you want to override this variable.

CSS Example

:root {
    --color-primary: red;
    --color-primary-dark: crimson;
