RC0 - Android - Initial Page utilizing pipes fails


This is my entire home.html file which works with Ionic Serve but FAILS on Android!!!

Total: {{123 | currency:‘USD’:true:‘1.2-2’}}

This succeeds on Android

Total: {{123}}

This is the first page which loads from my TutorialSlides Page…

7 814808 error EXCEPTION: Cannot convert undefined or null to object

12 814869 log end init
13 814876 error Uncaught TypeError: Cannot convert undefined or null to object,, Line: 3

This feels like a massive framework bug. What the heck is going on?!


I think I’m hitting the same issue.

The html page:

<p>Item Updated: {{ item.date_updated | date }}</p>

this is the page constructor:

export class ItemPage {
  item: any;

  constructor() {
    this.item = {
      "date_updated" : 1475537345945

Error when running on Android (ionic build) which uses the prod build:

main.js:3644 TypeError: Cannot convert undefined or null to object

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.3.1
Gulp version:  CLI version 3.9.1
Gulp local:
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0-rc.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.1

ios-sim version: 5.0.8

Node Version: v4.1.2
Xcode version: Xcode 8.0 Build version 8A218a

Any suggestions?


Same case here with “Date” filter.


Not the perfect answer… but i removed the pipes from my html pages and instead call a format method in my .ts page. In that page I construct a new static date filter, currency pipe etc…

I hadn’t tried it yet, but the ionic team just posted a blog on rc0 fixes. It updates some tooling and version in and could also fix the problem.


I haven’t gotten date pipes to work yet, when using the AoT compiler.

I’d think using it like this, would be safe:
<div class="pickup-time" *ngIf="order.pickupTime">{{order.pickupTime | date:'dd-MM-yy HH:mm'}}</div>

Where pickupTime is a string (can be empty), but it throws errors.
I’m avoiding pipes now.
