Gloom - Opensooq URL shortener

Admin

Gloom allows you to shorten URLs just as you would on your domain. Users can create these short links through the web interface For example, to shorten the URL http://www.google.com/, access UI admin:

Admin

Put your url then submit, you will see the shortner url.

or they can programatically create them through the Gloom API. With the Gloom API you can write applications that use simple HTTP methods to create short links from desktop, mobile, or web.

API Doc

API : /shorten
Method : POST
Params : longURL

For instance, you could issue the following curl command (POST request):

curl https://YourDomain/shorten \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{"longUrl": "http://www.google.com/"}'

If successful, the response will look like:

{ 
  shorten: "XXX",
  link : "XXXXXXX"
}

Links that users create through the Gloom can also open directly in your mobile applications that can handle those links. This automatic behavior provides the best possible experience to your app users who open your domain links, no matter what platform or device they are on.
