Shorty client

Shorty makes is easier to implement your very own URL shortener. The client is designed to be used with a Shorty server to make it easier to shorten URLs from your ruby application.

Shorty::Client.new "http://my.shorty.server/" do |s|
  if short_url = s.shorten "http://www.google.com/"
    puts "It worked! See it at #{short_url}"
  else
    puts shorty.errors.join(', ')
  end
end

Pretty rad!

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
