Bilk - URL Shortening Service

Bilk is a web application built with Python / Django that allows anyone to convert their long links to short snippets for better sharing across the web. It uses a PostgreSQL database to store original and shortened links.

Technologies and Frameworks Used

  • Front-end: Bootstrap
  • Back-end: Django, Python, PostgreSQL
  • Deployment: Heroku

Future Plans

Ideally, I would like to acquire a domain such as 'bilk.co' so links can be as succinct possible. The current herokuapp extension adds a significant amount of characters to shortened links.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
