    ToDo app example broken?


      I've been playing around with the JiveSDK trying to get a handle on how things work, I can build and install the photoalbum example, but everytime I try to run ToDo I get the following error:


      [2015-08-27 13:42:39.671] [ERROR] jive-sdk - Error: TypeError: Cannot read property 'indexOf' of undefined

      FATAL - [Error: TypeError: Cannot read property 'indexOf' of undefined]



      any idea what's going on?

      Ryan Rutan? anyone? (who is the best person to @mention with jiveSDK issues?)

          Okay so I found the issue.  Turns out that the Jive-SDK doesn't like case-sensitive filesystems.


          Aron Racho  the problem turns out to be one of the Tiles in the todo app.  The activity-stream component of the Todo example is named todoActivity.  This causes the marshalling of the extension_src (and therefore extension.zip) to crash.


          lines 697 - 702 of service.js:

          if ( !processedTile['config']) {
               // compute if a configure URL is required based on presence of the autowired route
               var path = _dir('/tiles') + '/' + name.toLowerCase() + '/backend/routes/configure/get.js';
               if ( fs.existsSync(path) ) {
                    processedTile['config'] = host + '/' + processedTile['definitionDirName'] + '/configure';


          As you can see, it forces the path from "/tiles/todoActivity/backend/routes/configure/get.js" to "/tiles/todoactivity/backend/routes/configure/get.js" which are not the same thing in a case-sensitive filesystem.  As a result 'processedTile['config']' is never set.  This causes the error above when it gets to line 747

          if (processedTile['config'].indexOf('/public') == 0) {



          The work-around was to rename the directory to todoactivity.  But it would be nice if a proper fix was implemented to deal with the fact that some filesystems are case-sensitive.


          (I know you and a lot of jivers are Mac users presumable on the default case-insensitive HFS+ so never noticed this)
