I’m trying to use python (and mastodon.py I guess?) to do some basic stuff on Mastodon.
Does anyone have an example?
What I want to do: 1.) Search for a mastodon account by name, not id, I don’t have the id of course.
2.) Get in return that account’s id, name, followers, etc.
To solve this problem: Once I can do a basic “pull” of information, I can understand how all this works better.
For instance, why do we create an “application” Before logging in? I don’t understand that but please do anyone have a script to help with the aforementioned? Thank you.
