taupe

… is a tiny Twitter status ID server.

When you visit http://tau.pe/http://twitter.com/elliottcable/status/5680923477, taupe becomes aware of the location of the Twitter status with an ID of ‘5680923477.’ Subsequent visits to http://tau.pe/5680923477 will redirect with an HTTP status code of 301 (“permanent redirect”) to http://twitter.com/elliottcable/status/5680923477.

taupe is backed by Node.js and Redis. I wrote it at Village Inn. Well, mostly… my battery died. It took about twenty songs on Grooveshark to write.

But yeah, it’s a pretty cool guy.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
