Woah, that wasn’t easy.
I managed to get it running using Django SVN trunk revision 8222 (pre-signals/dispatcher rewrite), and latest SVN Satchmo 1404.
It’s not easy on a PC to get the required files, got to be said. Most of the easy_installs don’t work.
I wasn’t sure where trml2pdf should be placed (install instructions: “put it where you want!” – thanks :-p). I put the folder in python/site-packages, and tested with “import trml2pdf” at the python line.
Finally, all was running well and I started the shop, when I hit:
‘WSGIRequest’ object has no attribute ‘session’
This is because I used the recommended setting.py almost directly. However, their setting-customize.py doesn’t include the “standard” stuff. I’ve no idea why – it should have everything needed to run. Anyway, it missed the middleware settings for the sessions. My middleware settings now read:
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (“django.middleware.locale.LocaleMiddleware”,
I still have some outstanding errors for the languages. I had to set my LANGUAGE_CODE to “us” – pretty odd, because that’s a country code. Doh. Plus, I want proper English (GB), and I’ll have to make sure I can do that.
I don’t know if that’s connected to the errors I got when doing:
python manage.py satchmo_load_l10n
But I ignored that and it still seems to be running 🙂
Final note: For a Django App, that demo store is bloody ugly ;-P
