_id format used in Meteor


#1

What’s the reason Meteor saves _id not in the format (we call it BSON ?)

"_id" : ObjectId("55ef940136a4c4e766a106d9")

but instead in "_id" : "8xPvzNj2hFggNDXCS" ?

Because they thought it would be easier to make a decision and stick to it, although you can change it, except for accounts.
