echo Build Status

With the form provided by this web app, users can create simple web pages using Markdown. These web pages are self-contained, fully encoded in their own URL. Because of this, it is easy to send huge amounts of text by passing a simple link, possibly shortened by a URL shortener service. Because URLs can be quite long and this app uses gzip for compression (which works extremely well for text), the amount of encoded content can be surprisingly big (see an example below).

A running echo instance can be found here: tinyurl.com/memowecho.

EXAMPLES

DID YOU KNOW ...?

The echo web app has a very short and well-documented source code and comes with a test suite. It is still shorter than this README file, even without URLs.
