Using the URL lengthener is super easy and free. How? Everything is encoded into the URL served. This is how you do it:
The script is located at
/url-lengthener.js of this site, or you can use the mirror from JSDelivr, located at https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/url-lengthener@latest/url-lengthener.min.js. If you would like to link it directly into your website, place either of the two lines in the
<head> section of your site, with the JSDeliver file being quicker (though not by much) to fetch and the one from this site being more updated:
If you prefer the unminified version of the code, remove the
.min from whichever link you are using.
Using the script is quite simple, as it is less than 115 lines in length. Encoding a URL takes two steps, converting from a URL to base16 and then base16 to the string of "A"s. While you could call these functions (
hex2a() respectively), the easiest way to get a URL encoded is to use the
lengthen(url) function, where url is the URL which you would like to lengthen. The function then returns a lengthened URL, which will redirect to its final destination when visited.
const urlLengthener = require("url-lengthener")
lenghten()function to run the code:
let lengthened_url = urlLengthener.lengthen("https://piemadd.com/"); console.log(lengthened_url);
Really simple, ok? You send a `GET` request here:
[YOUR_URL_HERE] is where you put the URL you want to lengthen. A plaintext response with the lengthened URL is returned unless the URL is invalid, which instead
INVALID_URL is returned.
