I talked about building a web service in Clojure. I built a URL-shortening service for the same. The presentation can be found here.
Description of the project.
Redirector: URL shortening service
This is a minimalistic URL shortening service which can shrink your ugly/large URL to a beautiful short URL.
Clone the repository from here
(-main) which is located in
It should be running on
* Shrink a URL Make request on browser--> `localhost:3000/shrink/<Enter-your-url-here>` * Retrive the original URL Make request on browset--> `localhost:3000/redirect/<Enter-the-shrunken-URL>`
Follow this link to see a video demonstration of this service.
P.S: Anyone willing to learn web development in Clojure can definitely refer to this repo.
