@ashwin31 There are difficulties in setting up the project on a local ubuntu machine. The documentation for setting it up is mainly lacking, the commands shown are not the ones you need to run to get it working and there is no explanation of what how to set up the seemingly unknown requirements.
SECRET_KEY is not even mentioned in the readme.md, but even setting that as its a common django environment variable still does not give much clue what more needs to be done. What database should be used? how do you setup redis? do you need to create a superuser before you do the migration? All this information is lacking from the documentation.
So my suggestion is that the steps needed to setup this on a fresh ubuntu machine should be documented. I will probably manage to figure it out by the time the documentation is updated, but for any other wanting to use or contribute to this project, the bar of entry does seem a bit convoluted.
