jQuery longUrl: Uniform Resource Elongator

Version: 1.0, Last updated: 1/23/2010

jQuery Long Url uses the short URL lengthening API to expand short URLs from at least 80 services, including,, and more!

And not only has jQuery Long Url been written to take advantage of the API "batch" ability, where up to ten URLs can be lengthened per request, but it can optionally use any lengthening service, supporting any URL-per-request "batch" limitations, which minimizes the number of external requests made for faster performance.

Visit the project page for more information and usage examples!



This working example, complete with fully commented code, illustrates one way in which this plugin can be used.
