Links is a short URL web service. Short URL links can be useful to provide a more memorable URL for a particular location or to decrease the number of characters used when sending URL’s in text messages.
To give an example imagine the short URL: lin.ks/me. The first part, lin.ks is the domain and can be anything you want (or at least whatever domain you can register). The /me is the short source link that can be redirected to any target link, e.g. https://www.mywebsite.com/my-long-page-name.
Administration of the service is through a REST compliant interface with the standard CRUD operations facilitated by POST, GET, PUT and DELETE.
Please see the documentation for details of interacting with the interface.
