Avec de vrais morceaux de 2.0 !

Major update in Mini-URL (TinyURL-like PHP5 stand-alone script)

Brand new Mini-URL application version 0.3 (last update before was 2006).

What's new?

  • Completely rewritten
  • Custom URL identifier could be 255 characters long (only 32 before)
  • 72 characters allowed, allowing to do very short URLs
  • API with JSON, Javascript, XML and plaintext support
  • Preview feature

How to use the API?

Just request the service URL with those parameters:

  • api (mandatory, could be js, json, xml or text)
  • url (mandatory, url to shorten)
  • id (optional, wanted id in shortened url)

Answer is two elements, first is success of URL creation, either 0 or 1. Second is error message in case of request failure or created URL in case of success.

How to use the preview feature?

Just append &preview at the end of the shortened URL.

Setup: just place the file on your server and run it in a web browser. You just need PHP5 with SQLite installed.
