Shortenit is a tool to shorten urls.

NOTE: This is a very early draft project. Contributions are welcome.


To run shortenit, first we need to have a running database. Shortenit uses CouchDB as a database. CouchDB can run as a docker container.

$ docker run -p 5984:5984 -d couchdb 

At this point, visit the local instance link http://localhost:5984 and create the user credentials configured in config/config.yaml.

Once the database is up and running and the credentials have been created, shortenit can be ran.

$ pip install -e .
$ shortenit
