@erikj79 I don't follow how removing the fast return is correct? The `fetch` will then result in an `404` which I don't think the rest of the code will handle? I _think_ returning `Promise.resolve([])` (i.e. an empty array wrapped in promise) would be better. `apply` should be able to handle that `lines` is empty, so things "should" just work.
