Distill

Another url shortener

Build Status codecov GoDoc Go Report Card

[Docker]

Motivations

Existing url shorteners are not suitable for a private deploy use or are too complex in terms of requirements.

Distill aims to create a easy deployable short url service that can be used for specific events.

Features

  • Choose the alphabet set for the generate short id
  • Choose the length of the generate short id
  • Load existing short id <-> url mappings*
  • Overwrite an existing short id with a different target url*
  • Set a time to live on short ids (globally or per id)
  • Set a expiration date on short ids (globabbly or per id)
  • Set a request limit on short ids (globally or per id)
  • Set a redirect for the / path
  • Set a redirect url for exhausted ids (request limit reached)
  • Set a redirect url for expired ids (ttl/end date reached)
  • Backup/restore urls in csv or binary format
  • Import data via csv
  • Get statistics both globally and for short id

* the alphabet and lenght can be enforced

Expiration strategy

There are 3 ways to set an expiration for a short id:

  • TTL (seconds)
  • Epiration date
  • Max requests

The three options can be configured globally or per short id, the value specified for the short id takes always precedence over the global configuration.

For the TTL and the expiration date the actual expiration is selected as max ( creation_date + ttl, expiration_date)

!!! the expiration is set upon short id creation, changing global configuration will not affect the short ids already set !!!

For redirects, the expiration url redirect takes precedence over the exhaustion url redirect.

If no redirects are set for exhausted / expired url then a 404 is returned.
