A simple URL Shortener

Project description

2015-10-09: Broke compatibility with all Python versions except of 2.7


A simple favourites / URL shortening app in Python. Work in progress. The idea is to have a simple, working web application linked with a set of tools - which could be used in larger projects.


  • Bottle (microframework), Skeleton
  • PostgreSQL with SQLAlchemy (ORM), fallback to SQLite
  • cookiecutter-bottle template, bumpversion, vendor, crashreporter
  • playing with testing, using unittest, nosetests, tox, behave, WebTest

Works with Travis CI, successfull builds are deployed to Heroku:

At some moment it will work with Openshift as well.


Running in development mode (prepare virtual environment and run the app inside):

I am struggling a bit with releasing to PyPi, it will work soon.
