edbin api ready

url shortening can now be easily added to your applications, just pass on the url, though the api only accepts a URL at this point, and of course features will be added as day passes. and as it is needed. :)

i created a small PHP function that can show how you can add the service to your applications or blogs.

function get_short_url($url){
$ch = curl_init();
$timeout = 5;
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_URL,’http://edb.in/api.php?url=’.$url);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT,$timeout);
$data = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
return $data;
}

have fun!

URL shortener launched!

today, we launched the edbin URL shortner, well, truth is, the domain edb.in has been idle for quite some time, so i beleive it would be worth to serve something. This will be my first ever useful web service! ( i hope it is really helpful lol )

I hope someone other than me uses it, and suggest other features that may be helpful.

suggestions, critics, what ever,  are all welcome, nothing to lose, have fun everyone! :)

The service is available here: http://edb.in
