Having trouble getting upfront editing to work, js errors

Hello, trying to play around with the upfront theme, specifically spirit but running into problems.

How should I run upfront with a caching system in place?

Also when I try to run it from https I am getting javascript errors and it doesn't loaded the editing features:

ie: https://networkingname.com/subblogname/?editmode=true

Will result in the following javascript errors:

/subblogname/wp-content/themes/upfront/scripts/upfront/upfront-views-editor.js:79
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'tpls' of undefined

/samsmith/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=upfront_data:4
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token }
