The Base API describes the common traits of every object in the platform.
You access an object by it’s ID with
IDs can be internal Hull ids, or external objects, which we call
entities (More below).
The latter is a Base64-encoded string that can be anything. You can use a unique ID in your database, or a URL that we’ll parse to extract OpenGraph Data and embed it in the Entity. This way you can seamlessly access internal and external objects using the same API schema.
