Shorty is a tool for creating shorter, human- readable links from long URLs. The Shorty API is a URL shortener with a twist. Instead of generating junk characters, it uses English words to make the URLs memorable and repeatable in addition to short. The API provides programmatic access to the URL shortener and the ability to specify a word (if available). Additionally, when links are created with Shorty the link remains working and available so long as your domain is working. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted JSON.
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.
