[BUG] - Retrieve Tiktok on specific date or range

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

I have tried to retrieve tiktok between a time range (one month) when using minCursor and maxCursor

The buggy code

tiktoks = api.trending(count = 2, minCursor=1580511600, maxCursor=1583017199)
for tiktok in tiktoks:

Expected behavior

1580511600 corresponds to ‘01-1-2020 00:00:00’ timestamp 1583017199 corresponds to ‘31-1-2020 23:59:59’ timestamp

Documentation says :

:param minCursor: time stamp for the earliest TikTok to retrieve
:param maxCursor: time stamp for the latest TikTok to retrieve

So i expected to have Tiktok’s [‘createtime’] between them. Unfortunatly trending, byHashtag or others methodes seems to not use minCursor/maxCursor anymore. I see in others issues that yu’ve mentionned that point but i’m not sure.

Error Trace

print from the code below


Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: [ Windows 10]
  • TikTokApi Version [3.6.0] - if out of date upgrade before posting an issue

Additional context

I think that the documentation is out of the date. Do you know a way to retrieve video between a range of dates or a specific one ?

Thank you for you help !

TikTok won’t index by IDs you could create a function to filter out TikToks that don’t have a createTime value between the returned list though.

Again thank you for your reactivity !

It’s more clear now.

Not even a start date for retrieve ? Such a shame, that can be really useful. I’ve seen that Tiktok’s ID is composed of the posting date (like presents here but i dont know if it can be useful.
