    Tinchy

    Uh, so... tinchy

    tin·chy adj. smaller than tiny.

    Yep, it's a ridiculously simple and compact (less than 40 lines) personal URL shortener that takes fatty URLS and makes them tinchy.

    Tinchy urls are in the form of http://domain.com/abc

    Dependancies

    Just Node 0.6+ and the Express framework. No database needed, tinchy persists URLs on the filesystem using JSON, so no database is needed.

    I also wrote a python version of Tinchy.

    Give it to me in bullets

    • Personal URL shortener.

    • <40 lines of code.

    • Express is the only dependency.

    • No database needed, files are persisted to the filesystem as JSON files.

    • Good for storing a few thousand personal URLs, if you expect to be storing tens of thousands then look somewhere else. This is not a bitly clone :).

    • Do whatever you want with it.

    • I hope it wont blow up but if it does then sorry :(
