YOURLS on a webserver for personalized shortened URLs

Posted By on April 9, 2016


A little more tinkering with webservers and websites this weekend lead me to adding open source YOURLS project to my little used domain (it was just place holder for a server). Its use gives me a simplified or "like" personalized URL shortener. Initially I thought about opening it for public use, but after hearing horror stories, thought twice about opening it up. Currently it is a way to send shorter Tweets and track the popularity of clicks especially with browser "bookmarklets" … interesting but probably not really all that exciting.
