A URL shortener using Redis and Node.js

Requirements

redis-node-client (included; authored by Brian Hammond, Fictorial)

Node.js

Redis

Usage

Start the server:

$ node little.js
Server running at http://localhost:8080

Shorten a URL by sending a request to http://localhost:8080?url=http://example.com

The server will respond with a short URL.

By default, the server runs on port 8080 and uses Redis database No. 5. Different values can be given in command-line arguments:

$node little.js -p 8888 -db 2

In action

Go to ltlr.us/?url=http://example.com

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
