@aclindsa: Fortunately this issue has just been opened:

Ah, my locale on this particular machine had been overlooked and was simply "C". I've changed it to "en_US.UTF-8" and that allowed sigal to work. Are you aware of a reason this results in a TypeError rather than a clean error message telling me my locale is incompatible?

Thanks for your help!

@aclindsa: I can't reproduce, what is your locale ?
The issue is in click, where this line should use (b'.utf-8', b'.utf8').

I'm getting the following message with the latest when just running `sigal`:

@omrihar, @anatolik: This is fixed with the new version, sorry for the delay.

@omrihar: sigal works on python 3, did you get any errors ?
On the website you can read "Sigal is compatible with Python 2.7 and 3.3.". Where did you read that it is python2 only ? I will be happy to fix this.

omrihar commented on 2015-01-15 14:22

For some reason when I install it, it installs to my Python 3 directory instead of Python 2 (which according to the website is what it supports). Did I do something wrong? I installed it using packer.

Thanks :-)

@drcouzelis: oops sorry, I forgot to add it. This is now fixed, thanks for the report.

drcouzelis commented on 2014-09-01 23:29

Surprise! Apparently "python-blinker" is now a dependency for version 0.8.0. :)

gigitux commented on 2014-05-03 19:54


No problem :)

Mmm, ok :)

saimn commented on 2014-04-30 21:31

@gigitux: sorry I forgot to answer you :/
afaik argcomplete is compatible only with bash, so I have added it but as an optional dependency.

gigitux commented on 2014-03-11 17:40

Add in dependencies:


Thanks :)
