Updated crotal, now it doesn't work anymore.
There are not "tags: " entries in my post source files. That wasn't a problem in version 0.6.
But with the most recent version, site generation doesn't work any more.
If I run the generate command, the I get an attribute error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the bug. Now I have fixed the attribute error and published a newer version 0.9.8. Please update crotal and try again.

Please notice that crotal has changed the template engine from Jinja2 to Mako due to performance. So the template you used in 0.6.0 may not be working anymore.

However, you can create a new site using the newer version crotal, and move your posts into the newer site folder.

crotal init new_site

Move the posts into the newer site folder.

cp -rf old_site/source/* new_site/source/

Generate the site.

cd new_site
crotal generate -f
crotal server

Also, please notice that the port number has changed from 8000 to 1124 due to conflicts with other service. However, you can change the port manually by this:

crotal server -p 8088

Thank you for your interest in this project and wish you a pleasant day!

Dear Ding,

site generation works fine with the new version (0.98). Thank you so much for the quick response and the bug fix!
But as you supposed: my old template is broken. However, the new default template looks fine, too! Gotta adjust this over the weekend.. :)
