#19670 closed Bug (fixed)

CachedFilesMixin Doesn't Limit Substitutions to Extension Matches

The format of the patterns attribute seems to imply that substitutions will only be performed in files with the corresponding extension. However, if a file matches *any* of the filename patterns, then *all* of the listed substitutions will be performed. For example:

    patterns = (
        ("*.css", (
        ("*.js", (

Not only will url_converter() be called for any occurrences of the word "whatever" in JavaScript files, but also for any occurrences of url('something') and @import('something') (in JavaScript files).

I have a patch for this, just need to put the tests together.

We are affected by this. It seems that changing for patterns in self._patterns.values(): to for patterns in self._patterns.get(extension, []): will do the trick.

Just in case I don't get around to finishing this, I'll attach my WIP patch. From memory it was all working fine apart from an isolation issue whereby an unrelated test method would cause failure depending on the order in which the tests were run.
