Followed the install here: https://github.com/nitely/Spirit/tree/master/example

Its not quite right. I found that I had to perform "export SECRET_KEY="My dev box"" before the migration command would work.

Now when I run I get the following stack trace: http://dpaste.com/098756D

Hoping to get a little advice.

I found that I had to perform "export SECRET_KEY="My dev box"" before the migration command would work.

Thanks!, I will fix it.

Now when I run I get the following stack trace: http://dpaste.com/098756D

Try:

$python manage.py migrate --settings=project.settings.dev$ python manage.py runserver --settings=project.settings.dev

It'll run with the developer settings. Don't do that in production.

Let me know if works.

Edit: I just made some changes, now it will run the dev box by default, no need to export SECRET_KEY or anything else. If you run the example steps all over again (including the clone or you may pull the changes), it should work this time.

Hello Esteban.

The example expired?

Best.

Yes. That was the old and awful way of installing spirit. The installation guide is the replacement for it.
