@ueffel wrote PackageControl, a package manager that eases the install of third-party packages. It must be installed manually.


Once the URLShortener.keypirinha-package file is installed, move it to the InstalledPackage folder located at:

  • Keypirinha\portable\Profile\InstalledPackages in Portable mode
  • Or %APPDATA%\Keypirinha\InstalledPackages in Installed mode (the final path would look like C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Keypirinha\InstalledPackages)


Open Keypirinha and type 'URL Shortener'. There are three catalog items implemented by this plugin:

  • URL Shortener: Use this to shorten a URL using the default service specified in the configuration. Select this item, paste or type the URL you want to shorten and wait for the output.
  • URL Shortener: History: Navigate through list of your shortened URLs. The history can be disabled in configuration. Once this item is selected the history will appear as suggestions.
  • URL Shortener: Clear history: Wipe the history of shortened URLs.


# Here you can specify the main service used to shorten the url
# Accepted values: google, tinyurl, isgood, bitly
# * Default: google
main_service = google

# Enabling history will allow you to see all your shortened urls
# * Default: yes

  • TinyURL ( - No further configuration necessary.
  • ( - No further configuration necessary.
  • Bitly ( - An API key is required. Generate an API KEY on's website.
