If not specified, the list of zettel is sorted descending by the value of the zettel identifier.
The highest zettel identifier, which is a number, comes first.
You change that with the
_sort query parameter.
Alternatively, you can also use the
_order query parameter.
It is an alias.
Its value is the name of a metadata key, optionally prefixed with a hyphen-minus character (
According to the type of a metadata key, the list of zettel is sorted.
If hyphen-minus is given, the order is descending, else ascending.
If you want a random list of zettel, specify the value
_random in place of the metadata key.
_order=_random) is the query parameter in this case.
If can be combined with
_limit=1 to obtain just one random zettel.
Currently, only the first occurrence of _sort is recognized. In the future it will be possible to specify a combined sort key.
