Yet Another URL Shortener (or Shrinker)
Casim.ir is inspired by — and tries to find its way between — both lilURL and xav.cc 's sfShortUrlPlugin, the first lacking some essential features and the later needing a whole symfony environment, as the location implies.
Casim.ir is both available online at casim.ir and as a download for self hosting.
It only needs PHP and MySQL to run. Just install it, following the instructions in the readme file, and enjoy it!
The development is hosted on GitHub, so you can fork it and help me enhance it at will!
Disclaimer: I didn't try to follow any PHP golden development rules, it just had to work as I needed.
See the included LICENSE.md file.
Create these tables in your MySQL database:
CREATE TABLE `casimir` ( `short_url` varchar(50) NOT NULL DEFAULT '', `long_url` text NOT NULL, `creation_date` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00', `last_use_date` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00', `uses` int(11) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', PRIMARY KEY (`short_url`) ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8; CREATE TABLE `casimir_stats` ( `short_url` varchar(50) NOT NULL default '', `use_date` timestamp NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00' ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;
user/casimir-conf.php and edit the configuration settings.
.htaccess according to your settings.
Optionnaly, you can add
user/footer.phpscript that will be added after Casim.ir's footer
user/screen.cssstylesheet that will be loaded after Casim.ir's one
