Fedi/Mastodon programmers… with the #MastodonAPI, and given a url to a post on any instance (assuming I have access to the toot from my account), how might I get my instance to fetch it and give me a “local” ID that is suitable for passing as the “inReplyToID” in a toot payload?
Wondering if I need to:
- perform a search (https://docs.joinmastodon.org/methods/search/)
- find the relevant status in the results
- use the ID for the status
Would that be the “local” ID?
