Simple-as-possible, personal link shortener with Bottle and Redis. Uses Redis' INCR function for an interesting change from the usual BASE and random stuff.


telstar is directly inspired by Dave Jeffery's tinchy, Leah Culver's tinytinyurl, and also by Cake's song Daria (which was playing in the couple of minutes when telstar was written).

to run

With the deps installed and a running redis-server on localhost, python will start the telstar web interface on localhost. Point your browser to http://localhost:8080/ and start shortening links.
