Description FelixReimann 2014-03-05 16:34:05 UTC
If adding a claim, two types of errors are thrown in case of a deleted item:

item = pywikibot.ItemPage(repo, "Q726")
target = pywikibot.ItemPage(repo, "Q14854094")
c = pywikibot.Claim(repo, u'P171')
item.addClaim(c) # Error if item or target were deleted

At the last line, you get either

pywikibot.exceptions.NoPage: Page [[wikidata:-1]] doesn't exist.

if item (Q726) has been deleted or invalid-snak-value: Q14854094 not found

if the target (Q14854094) has been deleted.

It would be great, if for the latter a specific "InvalidValueError" or similar would be thrown. Then, the error could be caught and handled specifically without the need to parse the (possibly changing) API error message itself.
