URL Shortening with Python !
We all know about Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Sometimes We want to send a URL/Link to someone. It creates unnecessary extra text in the URL which basically makes it difficult and irritating to manage them.
So today we are going to Implement a URL shortener program with the help of python.
We are going to use pyshortners. So what is pyshortners ?.
Pyshortners: A Python lib to wrap and consume the most used shorteners APIs.
We have to install this library inorder to use it.
installing pyshortners with pip command Install : pip install pyshortners
Using pyshortners library
import pyshorteners URL = input("Enter The Url/Link: ") short_URL = pyshorteners.Shortener() result = short_URL.tinyurl.short(URL) print(result)
Now we will see the result
As you can see the URL is too big.
Let's Paste in our Program
Now you can see a TinyURL has been generated by our program. This is how pyshortners works in python.
