Chrome Plugin error?


Can't find much info about this, but my plugin reguraly stop working
with the following error:

Unknown error happened: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'True'

I'm on Chormium Version 22.0.1229.94 with Ubuntu 12.10 (161065)

Restarting the browser fixes it, but it doesn't take long until it's back.

All responses

can you remember under which circumstances does this issue occur? It would greatly help us fix this issue if we would be able to identify it by reproducing it and therefore if there is any pattern that you can notice when this happens (maybe always if you add a task with a specific date or a specific label etc.), please let us know.

Best regards,

Hi and thanks for the quick response,

It occurred to me that this error is probably caused by cache cleaning which I do frequently as I'm a web developer. If I were to guess Chrome plugins are HTML-based and thus cleaning out the browsers cache also cleans out the login info for the plugin?

If so I guess there isn't much that can be done about this error.

The plugin is a frame connecting to a HTML5 website located at http://todoist.com/?mini=1 and it indeed uses your browser's cache. Clearing just the cache should not remove your login data, clearing the cookies will, though. We also use offline storage and application data to allow offline access.

Unfortunately, it may indeed not be possible to fix due to the online construction of the plugin and using the browser's cache for its data storage. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,
