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:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'tpls' of undefined

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token }
