This is a simple Node app that allows us to serve shortlinks that redirect places and retain ownership of our data. We run it on Heroku and serve links at http://c4a.me/. This software is in beta: it works pretty well, serves our needs, but could use some improvement. See our repo issues if you'd like to help improve it.
Note: The master branch of this repo automatically deploys to Heroku if it passes tests.
What it does
Redirect reads links in redirects.json and redirects visitors to the right place.
Branch or fork, add a new key/value pair in
redirects.json and submit a Pull Request.
What it uses
How to install and run locally
$ git clone https://github.com/codeforamerica/redirect.git $ cd redirect $ npm install $ npm start
How to run tests
$ npm test
Tests currently check to make sure the
redirects.json file is valid JSON, and that the application serves redirects for each line in the file correctly.
