Pleroma users should be aware that Pleroma has introduced breaking changes in their implementation of the Mastodon client API, which mean Toot! will no longer work at all with the latest version of Pleroma.

Pleroma is breaking some fundamental assumptions Toot! makes about IDs, and which can't easily be changed.

@WAHa_06x36 @tootapp What are they then? Mastodon sends its IDs as strings too because of JSON integer overflow

@Gargron @tootapp @WAHa_06x36 mastodon ids are sortable strings, new pleroma ids (flake ids) are sortable strings. I think if apps stop working they made assumptions that aren't valid according to the mastodon api docs.

@lain @tootapp @WAHa_06x36 If I understand correctly, the difference is in the encoding. Mastodon IDs are numeric in nature, so you can treat them as a big integer.

@Gargron @WAHa_06x36 @tootapp judging from the documented API this is incidental. It's unfortunate that some clients rely on this behaviour, but many don't, so I don't think it's too hard to fix if an app wants to support it.
