RipMe cannot extract imgur galleries (JSON error)

See original GitHub issue

RipMe cannot extract imgur galleries

I believe there was a new change on Imgur that is now preventing RipMe from automatically grabbing a gallery. The logfile shows a JSON error when reading the link. (I am now back to doing the downloading manually via the Imgur site).

Example; _ _ - has 107 images

RipMe runs but no images downloaded;

Ripping in RipMe ends up in an empty folder;

Error in logfile

2016-04-22 05:31:44,486 INFO  ripper.AbstractRipper .getImgurAlbum()     Retrieving
2016-04-22 05:31:45,087 DEBUG ripper.AbstractRipper .getImgurAlbum() Error while parsing JSON at, continuing
org.json.JSONException: JSONObject["description"] not a string.

Logfile attached.

This is what happens when I stop using software I wrote.

unt0uchablecommented, Apr 23, 2016

I can confirm this is a bug in v1.2.12.

The error is in and occurs for any image without a description. When the code attempts image.getString("description") it fails because the value mapped to description for the image is null.

Ripme can successfully extract images that do have a description. For example, it will successfully retrieve

Perform a proactive check for null beforehand using the JsonObject.isNull(String name) method:

if (!image.isNull("description")) {
    description = image.getString("description");

Is it possible to downgrade until this bug is resolved?

Any ETA on when a fix can be deployed?
