Url Shortener

A simple link shortener hosted at my personal website. This was a fun little project, inspired by my realization that lpm.io is the same length as bit.ly.

The shortening method

I wanted the links to be very short but still look random, so they're not really very random. Links are 3 characters, and must include at least one letter and at least one number. They're case insensitive, so you can read them over the phone or something.

TODO

  • Private links, track with either email auth or password
  • Track request referrers
