I decided to share the tool that I use to search for toots/posts/replies.https://github.com/verretor/fediscrape
It is meant to be easy to import into other projects that need a Fediverse scraper. It currently only supports Mastodon and Pleroma.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
