Introduction

A URL shorten web site powered by Node.js and Express.js.

Setup

First, I am using MySQL (data storage) and Redis (cache), so you have to configure MySQL/Redis in config.js:

 exports.config = {
  	mysqlHost:"localhost",
	mysqlUser:"root",
	mysqlPassword:"",
	mysqlDB:"shorten",
	
	redisHost:'localhost',
    redisPort:6379,

    site:'http://localhost:3000',
	linkMinLength:10,
	linkBits:6
}

It includes the user, password, database, Redis host/port, etc. Create the table using sql/st_links.sql before startup:

 msyql> source st_links.sql;

Second, you must install Node.js, then install Node modules by:

 sudo npm install -d

Last, startup the HTTP server:

 sh start.sh

The site is online at http://localhost:3000.

Chrome extension

You can install the chrome extension at extensions/chrome. It will use the API to short the URL in the current Chrome tab address bar.
