Search syntax

  • Empty search: public timeline
  • search: search for statuses matching the search (requires login)
  • user_id:ID: get all media for a given user ID


Getting an user ID on Mastodon is not trivial. You can do it by opening a status from a given user, then opening https://domain/api/v1/statuses/STATUS_ID. There, you'll see the user ID in the "" JSON field.


You need an OAuth app to login. To do so, you need to have cURL (or equivalent) installed, and run this command:

curl -X POST -F "client_name=Grabber" -F "redirect_uris="

The output will output a client_id and client_secret that you can use for the OAuth login.
