Toolbar Button

By dragging the link below to your browser toolbar, you can easily create a minilink to any page just by pressing the [] button when viewing the page.

Simple XML interface

By appending &xml=1 to the minilink creation URL, the response will be returned as an XML document. Example:


<?xml version="1.0">

XML-RPC interface

An XML-RPC interface is provided to create minilink URLs. This interface consists of a single method called "create", that takes a single URL as a string parameter and returns a shorter URL as a string. The following Python code is an example:

import xmlrpclib

minilink = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy("")
print minilink.create("")
