RubyURL-friendly library

Posted by Wed, 01 Jun 2005 23:21:00 GMT

Vincent Foley-Bourgon has just released ShortURL.

From his post:

You can install it with RubyGems:

$ gem install -r shorturl

or you can go to http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=732 and download
the tar.bz2 archive.

Usage is very simple, here's a sample irb session:

>> require "rubygems" 
=> true 
>> require "shorturl" 
=> false 
>> ShortURL.shorten("http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby") 
=> "http://rubyurl.com/eiRDm" 
>> ShortURL.shorten("http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby", :tinyurl) 
=> "http://tinyurl.com/bfuu2" 


On that note, RubyURL is almost at 1,000 unique URLs!
