url-shortener
=============
This is URL shortening application using the Django framework
The shortened URLs use the base 62 value of ids of the model they are
stored in. A count of how many times the URLs are used is kept. The
main page shows the 10 most recent and 10 most popular URLs.
Prerequisites
=============
Download Blueprint from: http://www.blueprintcss.org/
Copy the "blueprint" folder into static/css/ (which you may need to create)
Note that in a production installation, you'll want to have your web
server serve the "static" folder instead of letting Django serve it.
Settings
========
The following values need to be set in settings.py:
SITE_NAME
The name of the site (e.g. 'urlshorteningsite.com')
SITE_BASE_URL
The base URL of the site. This can be based on the SITE_NAME:
SITE_BASE_URL = 'http://' + SITE_NAME + '/'
REQUIRE_LOGIN
Set REQUIRE_LOGIN to True if you want to require that a user be
logged in to be able to submit a URL to be shortened. Set it
to False if you do not want to require login to submit a URL.
