Expected Behavior should not crash but come again to request mandatory input.

Current Behavior

When you don't enter anything when prompted for Slug (e.g. "conforg"): then crashes.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Follow documentation to setup pretalx development system
  2. When prompted for Slug (e.g. "conforg"): simply press return without entering anything.
  3. Enjoy the Traceback.
  4. There is no step 4.


Trying to get a pretalx dev setup running. But most likely to behave identical for the deployment setup.

It's unclear to me what this slug would be used for. Trying it as a path on the instance 404s. (I thought it would be what is to find the orga login screen under /orga but it's not.

If this is not used yet, maybe don't ask for it?
If it actually is used, make clear to the user that this is mandatory and ask again if no valid input is provided by the user.

Your Environment

  • Version used: pretalx 0.7.1 (actually master)
