Register new asset directory outside django project

Dear Django Fan,

Currently I am using python 3.8.1 and Django 3.0.3, my question is that could I register one asset directory outside django project? and call it for using in Django (refer to images)

Why I want to do that? because I don’t want to push my image directory into my gitlab.
If you have more idea on this, please help sharing with me. Thanks

You can use STATICFILES_DIRS to do this.
