you have to manually export the file to the Nevow object tree.

from nevow import rend, static
class MyPage(rend.Page):
    child_css = static.File('on_filesystem_css_directory/')

This will export the entire content of the on_filesystem_css_directory/ in an
'online' directory named css/ so considering MyPage as the root page (in /)
the css will be in /css/style.css

If you really want stuff like 'style.css' at root level you have 2 choices:

put in the class the dictionary:

class MyPage(rend.Page):
   children = { 'style.css':


class MyPage(rend.Page):
   setattr(MyPage, 'child_style.css', static.File('on_file.......'))
