Yourls

YOURLS is an open-source, PHP url-shortening service.

Installation

gem install yourls

Usage

Create a Yourls client using your hostname and api key as follows:

yourls = Yourls.new(your_hosted_yourls_address, your_hosted_yourls_api_key)

You can then interact with the client to shorten or expand urls or to get statistics about your service:

yourls.shorten('http://www.google.com')
yourls.shorten('http://www.google.com', :keyword => 'goog') # Creates a custom keyword url
yourls.expand('goog')
yourls.stats

expand and shorten both will return a Yourls::Url object

url = yourls.shorten('http://www.google.com', :keyword => 'goog')
url.short_url #=> "http://your-service/goog"
url.long_url #=> "http://www.google.com"
url.keyword #=> "goog"
