There's a way to get the current history data through a non-api url:
/history/current_history_json

...but, I don't believe those are accessible through any of the bio/blend
libraries.

Failing the above, is there some way to get the history ID from the UI?


You can click the information button ('i' with a circle around it) for any
dataset in a history. The encoded history API id will be listed under:
history api id.
