An easy to use Link shortener module.

  • Error handling, in detail explanation for every error that you could have
  • Custom and Unique Link title's are possible to create/add to your shortened link


Run this command in your terminal of your project

npm i link-shortener


.Shorten([URL to shorten], [Optional Title for the shortened link])

The first parameter of this function has to be the URL that you would like to shorten.
If it isn't a valid URL or if you didn't enter a URL, you will see an error show up in the console.

The second parameter of this function can be left empty if you don't want a custom link title, if you want a custom title, you can enter a string as the second parameter.
To check if the title is taken by another user, you have to add a check in your code (example given below).

Example of a custom link title:

Example of a random link title:


const Shortener = require('link-shortener')                                             // Require the module

const result = Shortener.Shorten('', 'Google').then((res) => {    // Using the .Shorten() function

    if (typeof res === 'undefined') {                                                   // Checking if the title entered is taken
        console.log("The requested title is already taken.")
    } else {
        console.log(res)                                                                // If the title is not taken, the link will be logged
