Category:Ecmascript & Duktape
Target version:4.10
Found in version:4.9.33 Platform:Linux


The code:

                    page.appendItem(url, 'video', {
                    title: new showtime.RichText(json.items[i].title + colorStr(bytesToSize(json.items[i].fileSize ? json.items[i].fileSize : json.items[i].quotaBytesUsed), blue) + ' ' + dateToHuman(json.items[i].modifiedDate)),
                        icon: json.items[i].thumbnailLink ? json.items[i].thumbnailLink : json.items[i].iconLink

url = undefined (null) makes:

gdrive          [ERROR]: TypeError (invalid base value) at showtime/page:237
gdrive          [ERROR]: STACK DUMP: TypeError: invalid base value

Use appendPassiveItem if you don't have an URL

I will light the details why I raised this:
In gdrive plugin which was working flawlessy on duktape before - today and got that error. That is because google decided to send empty urls in json for built in file types like spreadsheets etc.

So rewriting plugins just because url become empty seems to be less logically then to make api v1 be empty url proof.

I made follwing change in the plugin code: var url = ''; if (json.value) url = json.value;
But IMHO its better to fix that internally.
