Dyo is an open-source link management tool for modern marketing teams to create, share, and track short links. Built with Vercel Edge Functions, Upstash Redis, and Planetscale MySQL.

Here are some of the features that Dyo provides out-of-the-box:

Built-in Analytics

Dyo provides a powerful analytics dashboard for your links, including geolocation, device, and browser information.

Custom domains

You can easily configure custom domains on Dyo – just add an A/CNAME record to your DNS provider and you're good to go. This is built on the Vercel Domains API.

QR Code Generator

You can easily generate and customize QR codes for your links, which can be used for flyers, posters, powerpoint presentations, etc.

Tech Stack


Dyo is built as a standard Next.js application with Middleware to handle multi-tenancy, inspired by the Vercel Platforms Starter Kit.

Redis is used as the caching layer for all short links. Redis also has the Sorted Set data type, which is perfect for storing & retrieving time-series analytics data. Here's the full schema:

  • {domain}:clicks:{key} – sorted set of all clicks for a given link (e.g.
  • {domain}:root:clicks – sorted set of all root link clicks for a given domain (e.g.

MySQL is used as the database for storing user data, project data, and link metadata. You can refer to the Prisma schema here.
