The Base API describes the common traits of every object in the platform.

You access an object by it’s ID with /:id.
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.
