Library to access the bit.ly API from CodeIgniter

Features

  • Processes all API v3 methods
  • Autoloads config settings and supports config override through the Initialize method
  • Simple, short output for default JSON and TXT requests to the API
  • Full response output for XML requests
  • Flag for full response on any request

Usage

$this->load->library('bitly', [ optional $params ]);

All methods will return the API response on a successful request. Any call that contains invalid or malformed parameters will return FALSE without calling the API, which would return an error in any case. All methods have an option $verbose flag, and if set to TRUE, the entire API response is returned.

// Shorten request
echo $this->bitly->shorten('http://www.example.com/');

Returns the bit.ly shortUrl, i.e. http://bit.ly/bldm16

// Expand request
echo $this->bitly->expand(array('http://bit.ly/bldm16'));

If there is only a single target, it will return the longUrl for that, otherwise it returns the entire response.

// Make a call and force the entire reponse to be returned
echo $this->bitly->shorten('http://www.example.com/', TRUE);

Returns full response in an array assuming the format is JSON, otherwise just a string for XML or TXT formats.

// Get the full response after a simple call is made
echo $this->bitly->shorten('http://www.example.com/', TRUE); // shortURL
$response = ($this->bitly->response());

Returns full response in an array assuming the format is JSON, otherwise just a string for XML or TXT formats.
