Static Files Organization

All* JavaScript code should be in a .js file and encapsulated as a module using hqDefine.

JavaScript files belong in the static directory of a Django app, which we structure as follows:

myapp/
  static/myapp/
    css/
    font/
    images/
    js/       <= JavaScript
    less/
    lib/      <= Third-party code: This should be rare, since most third-party code should be coming from yarn
    spec/     <= JavaScript tests
    ...       <= May contain other directories for data files, i.e., `json/`
  templates/myapp/
    mytemplate.html

* There are a few places we do intentionally use script blocks, such as configuring less.js in CommCareHQ’s main template, hqwebapp/base.html. These are places where there are just a few lines of code that are truly independent of the rest of the site’s JavaScript. They are rare.
