A new Tiny URL package for Node.js with promise/async and alias support.
The idea behind this package is for a Open Source class taken at college. The professor wanted us to make a contribution to an OSS project.
Since the TinyURL package is a great option after Google has shut down it's shortener service. But the TinyURL has no Promise support, making it difficult to use with any new ECMA standards. As there is a Pull Request(PR) opened supporting this in the project and still isn't merged, the idea behind tiny-shortener is to make a new package that supports this and goes a step further supporting alias, letting the user personalize the shortened URL.
obs: in case that that the alias isn't available the request still works but falls back to an default shortened link.
npm install tiny-shortener --save
- url - Link to be shortened;
- alias - Wanted personalization link;
- Returns <Promise> - Shortened link or rejects an error.
With async/await support but works with Promises as well:
With Promises support but works with async/await as well:
const tiny = tiny;;// with alias;});
tiny-shortener --url www.example.com
Or even with alias support:
tiny-shortener --url www.foo.com --personalization bar

Using the Microsoft style code.
