Python bit.ly wrapper

This is a thin Python wrapper for the bit.ly API. Basic usage looks like this:

>>> import bitlyapi
>>> b = bitlyapi.BitLy(api_user, api_key)
>>> res = b.shorten(longUrl='http://www.google.com/')
>>> print res['url']
'http://bit.ly/6Hwstb'
>>> print res['long_url']
'http://www.google.com/'

The return from any method call is a dict containing the results of decoding the JSON returned from bit.ly. For example:

>>> import pprint
>>> pprint.pprint(res)
{'global_hash': '2V6CFi',
 'hash': '9gOd4I',
 'long_url': 'http://www.google.com/',
 'new_hash': 1,
 'url': 'http://bit.ly/9gOd4I'}

You can supply arbitrary keywords to method calls and they will be passed to the bit.ly API:

>>> res = api.shorten(domain="j.mp", longUrl="http://www.example.com/foobar.html")
>>> pprint.pprint(res)
{'global_hash': 'cITxl0',
 'hash': 'cY4460',
 'long_url': 'http://www.example.com/foobar.html',
 'new_hash': 1,
 'url': 'http://j.mp/cY4460'}
