re: What would you use as a sortable, globally unique, ID? VIEW POST


Was just talking about this recently and we settled on ULID as potential solution.


Yes. Unique, sortable, more compact Base32 encoding


That's definitely an option!

The only alternative to ULID I found is github.com/segmentio/ksuid which has a smaller set of bits for timestamp.

Let me know how it goes? Have you checked the implementation in the language you need?
