Want to build your own URL shortener? These open source projects make it easy.
I quite fancy having my own URL shortener — it’s mentioned on the IndieWeb ‘Getting Started’ page, which is something I’ve been looking at getting involved in. The thing is, I’d need to register a new short domain and I’m not sure I want to do that. Anyhow, if I were to go down this route, the 3 URL shorteners in this article are all written in PHP and are worth investigating further.
