@WAHa_06x36 @tootapp Is that basically UUIDs? I suppose that really fucks with the ability to calculate toot gaps (although it should still be possible with more effort if their API responses include next/prev links)
That being said, the Mastodon REST API was never intended to be used by anything but Mastodon, so maybe it's a good thing.
@tootapp l we do it as well for the same reason and I made sure that SQLite will do the thing I need.
What do you use for such persistence?
@lain Also, Mastodon IDs are *not* sortable strings, they are sortable integers, represented as strings. "9" < "10" in the Mastodon API, which is not true for regular string comparison.
@lain They don't. They are are represented as regular integers, as far as I know. Comparing them as strings is wrong.
