= bitly == DESCRIPTION: A Ruby API for bit.ly http://code.google.com/p/bitly-api/wiki/ApiDocumentation == INSTALLATION: gem install bitly == USAGE: Create a Bitly client using your username and api key as follows: bitly = Bitly.new(username, api_key) You can then use that client to shorten or expand urls or return more information or statistics as so: bitly.shorten('http://www.google.com') bitly.shorten('http://www.google.com', :history => 1) # adds the url to the api user's history bitly.expand('wQaT') bitly.info('http://bit.ly/wQaT') bitly.stats('http://bit.ly/wQaT') Each can be used in all the methods described in the API docs, the shorten function, for example, takes a url or an array of urls. All four functions return a Bitly::Url object (or an array of Bitly::Url objects if you supplied an array as the input). You can then get all the information required from that object. u = bitly.shorten('http://www.google.com') #=> Bitly::Url u.long_url #=> "http://www.google.com" u.short_url #=> "http://bit.ly/Ywd1" u.user_hash #=> "Ywd1" u.hash #=> "2V6CFi" u.info #=> a ruby hash of the JSON returned from the API u.stats #=> a ruby hash of the JSON returned from the API bitly.shorten('http://www.google.com', 'keyword') == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2009 Phil Nash Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
