Reliable sharing of Django project across GitHub

I have developed two small Django projects using a Desktop at home and a Desktop at work.  I need to work on it at both locations, but the local files are stored on different directories.  I copied files from home to a repository on GitHub.  I then cloned the GitHub repository onto the work computer.  This worked fine for one iteration.  Then, I updated the project on the work computer and the software (which ran on the home computer) no longer functioned correctly

Error:  No module named 'NadiasGarden_project', which is the name of the directory.

I do not know where this module is supposed to reside?

I removed the local repository and re-cloned the working GitHub repository.  Again, the same error.

I used the default .gitignore

Any suggestions as to how to obtain reliable project sharing across GitHub?

Hi,

>Error:  No module named 'NadiasGarden_project

You have an unresolved import somewhere in your code. You should see from where it is being imported, and if the module is actually located there.

In searching for the calling module, I am having a big problem diagnosing the Error from the extended output;  Initially, I had an error associated with the .virtualenvironment.  I deleted all of those environments and setup a new clone with a new pipenv.  However, there still seems to be an incorrect module call.  From this extended output, which file should I investigate?
