This Java client for Bitly is a small and easy to implement Java code library for interacting with Bit.ly, the URL shortening service. Though not directly supported by Bit.ly, the library is licensed under Apache 2.0, and endorsed for use on the Bit.ly developer site. Currently in version 0.7.1, this client supports OAuth, as API key authentication has been deprecated. The Bit.ly API allows developers to implement programmatic shortening, sharing, and tracking of links (URLs). Unique user-level and aggregate links can also be created to let users view complete, real-time traffic and referrer data, as well as location and metadata.
This is the first API profile in what we are calling the "Growth Series." Mapbox provides an API that allows developers to create maps with rich data visualizations by using multiple data layers. This feature along with others has fueled an 11x growth in calls made to its API.
