fwd

fwd is a url shortener that uses 'pretty' names. It is best suited and geared toward use in intranets, but public installations are possible with minor changes for simple authentication.

Unlink most url shorteners, fwd allows you to pick the alias, giving you complete control over the shortened url. This allows creation of easily rememberable urls that can be embedded in presentations, emails, notices, or communicated verbally.

Forwards are persistent, and will never time out or disappear unless explicitly deleted.

Installation

Installation is as easy as cloning:

git clone git://github.com/kurakin/fwd.git

Copy config-sample.json to config.json, set your mongodb connection string, and start the app!

./run.sh
