Satchmo installation

November 14th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Been playing with Satchmo today. One issue I ran into, is I installed the Trunk version of Django, which Satchmo apparently isn’t compatible with; it apparently expects Django 1.3. The easiest way to get started with a very fresh install of Satchmo is to go through the following steps.

Setup and activate virtual environment:

~/projects$ virtualenv test
~/projects$ cd test
~/projects/test$ source bin/activate

Make sure you have PIL installed:

sudo apt-get install python-imaging

Install Satchmo:

~/projects/test$  hg clone https://chris1610@bitbucket.org/chris1610/satchmo
~/projects/test$ cd satchmo
~/projects/test/satchmo$ python setup.py install

Install all the other requirements:

~/projects/test/satchmo$ pip install -r scripts/requirements.txt

Setup sample store

/projects/test$ python source/satchmo/scripts/clonesatchmo.py
/projects/test$ cd store
/projects/test/store$ python manage.py runserver

Then just shoot your browser to:

    I am not aware of a problem with Satchmo tip and Django trunk. What error are you seeing?

    Hi Chris, When I used trunk and then ran the clonesatchmo script there was an error “ingesting” the fixture data, which I don’t get with Django 1.3 (everything else being equal).

    ConstructorError: could not determine a constructor for the tag ‘tag:yaml.org,2002:python/long’

    satchmo_store.contact.models.DoesNotExist: ContactRole matching query does not exist.

    It is fixed now in Satchmo. It has been caused by Django Changeset 17062 made in trunk 2 weeks ago. You was the first who reported it.

    Just as an FYI, we’ve updated the YAML fixture so it will work with the latest version of satchmo.

    Amazing response to that issue. Thanks a lot. Keep up the great work!
