I have implemented spirit on a website, I can see there is a notification system how does this actually work ?

does it send emails ? or does it do push notifications to your browser ?

currently it does not look like the notifications are working or i am missing some settings, my current django site can send email so should spirit hook into the default email sending or does it require extra config ?

The bell turn red when there is a new comment in a thread you are subscribed to or when someone mentions you.

Neither.

The things is it's not that easy. Sending notification emails would require a background tasks manager and a queue (ie: Celery + rabbitmq). Doing it synchronously is extremely sub-optimal, except maybe for very small communities. So, it's a ton of work and I didn't got to it, yet.
