Custom redirect page

This is a super simple script to host your own redirection page directly on Github Pages. Think of it like your own version of bit.ly without the fancy add-ons.

How does it work?

Links are defined links.json, a dictionary mapping short version to long version. On landing, the page serves and index.html with a tiny JavaScript that does the redirection. Everything is logged on Google Analytics.

See some examples:

Why?

Because I want to keep track of the links I post online and I don't want bit.ly or the likes owning my links and stats. With this script everything goes directly posted to Google Analytics.

Can I use it?

Sure, fork and set up your links, Github pages, and stuff. Remember to set your own GA tracking code in index.html.
