qr.cx provides a basic API which can be used to harness qr.cx's URL shortening service for other applications. This works by accessing a particular URL on the qr.cx site which accepts the long URL you would like shortened as a parameter. The shortened URL (or various error conditions) will then be returned in the HTTP response.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
