Python Question

Django: Not Found static/admin/css

I just deployed my first Django app on Heroku but I notice that it doesn't have any CSS like when I runserver on the local machine. I know there's something wrong with static files but I don't understand much about it even when I already read the docs. I can do

python3 manage.py collectstatic


to create a static folder but I don't know where to put it and how to change the DIRS in settings.py. I really need some help to get rid of it.

root directory

settings.py:

DEBUG = True

INSTALLED_APPS = [
'django.contrib.admin',
'django.contrib.auth',
'django.contrib.contenttypes',
'django.contrib.sessions',
'django.contrib.messages',
'django.contrib.staticfiles',
'household_management',
]

TEMPLATES = [
{
'BACKEND': 'django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates',
'DIRS': [os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'templates')],
'APP_DIRS': True,
'OPTIONS': {
'context_processors': [
'django.template.context_processors.debug',
'django.template.context_processors.request',
'django.contrib.auth.context_processors.auth',
'django.contrib.messages.context_processors.messages',
],
},
},
]

STATIC_ROOT = 'static'
STATIC_URL = '/static/'

Change STATIC_ROOT

STATIC_ROOT = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static')

And run collectstatic again
