TinyURL Ramaze Application
===========================

Required gems
--------------

sqlite3-ruby, sequel, validatable, ramaze, thin


Features
---------

- everything in one file - model, view, controller
- auto create the database if missing
- unique urls in the database 
- url hits counting
- API for command-line access - can shorten urls and restore the original urls


Usage
------

 $ curl -O turl.rb "http://github.com/zh/turl/tree/master%2Fturl.rb?raw=true"
 $ ruby turl.rb
 # browse http://localhost:7000/
 # shorten url (turl)
 $ curl http://admin:secret@localhost:7000/_api?turl=http://github.com/zh/turl/
 # restore the original url
 $ curl http://admin:secret@localhost:7000/_api?url=abc
 # number of hints for given turl
 $ curl http://admin:secret@localhost:7000/_api?hits=abc

Do not forget to change the BASE_URL and LOGINS values. By default the database 
file (sqlite3) will be created in the same directory with turl.rb. If this is not 
acceptable, change the DB_FILE line.
