The service provides persistent URLs for science applications to maintain access to them as their hosting environments change over time. Based on a finding that URLs change for almost half of all scientific web services within 5 years, the service defines an access URL that forwards to a current access address. Forwarding information can be updated if access information changes, so the service's URL continues redirecting to the updated location.
API methods support submission of an encoded URL and return a shortened URL at the service's domain. Submissions can also specify a desired URL tag, and the API will return either the shortened URL using that tag or an error message if it is already in use.
The following is a list of SDKs from our SDK directory that matched your search term. Though your definition of an SDK may differ, in our world, we define SDKs as platform- specific tools for consuming existing APIs of the sort we list in our API directory. For example, the Ruby SDK for consuming the Twitter Ads API. If you think an SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
