Let me state at the outset that I have no idea what Harvestman is or what
you're trying to acheieve.

Looking at the stacktrace, I'll give you some pointers as to what I'd do if
I had got this error.

   1. File
   line 355, in apply_word_filter
   2.     if self._configobj.wordfilterre.search(data):
   3. AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'search'

This tells me that self._configobj is None, which clearly it shouldnt be.
Your first step should be to identify where is self._configobj gets defined.

search for "self._configobj = " or "self._configobj=" in the py files ( that
is if its something that gets defined automatically)

Since the error comes from one of the library files (

it shows something you've done wrongly. One of the things you should keep in
mind while using third party frameworks (Harvestman is some kinda framwork
right ? ) it needs to have all things in place to get it working. Read the
docs, search google for example programs/code snippets.

Another clue is configobj -> "config" .. so this has something to do with
config. Probably a bad config file ?

I know this is too vague, as I said I have no idea what this Harvestman is.

Good Luck
