Really simple static website URL shortener

Project description

sus is a static site based URL shortener. Simple idea: generate a static site with a bunch of redirect-slug-goes-here/index.html files with nothing but an HTML redirect in them.

Installation

# note: you’ll need Python 3.6 or higher
pip install sus

Usage

  1. Install package
  2. Have an input file ready
  3. Have a home.html file ready (optional)
  4. Run sus in the same directory as input
  5. Voilà—your results are in the output/ directory

Input

sus expects to find a file named input in the current directory, and each row consists of the redirect slug and destination URL, separated by a pipe (|).

E.g.,

nk|https://nkantar.com
sus|https://github.com/nkantar/sus

If one were to serve output/ on https://sus-example.nkantar.com, then https://sus-example.nkantar.com/nk would redirect to https://nkantar.com and https://sus-example.nkantar.com/sus would redirect to https://github.com/nkantar/sus.

That example site exists, and its repository can be found at https://github.com/nkantar/sus-example.nkantar.com.

Homepage

If sus finds a home.html file next to input, it will copy it to output/index.html, thereby generating a homepage. If it doesn’t, it will simply carry on.

Pronunciation

Much controversy has sparked around the pronunciation of the project’s name (no, it hasn’t). As such, here is the definitive guide on doing so, as conceived by the original author. Please note that—much like with GIF —others may have different ideas, and who’s to say the author knows what he’s talking about anyway?

“sus” is in this case pronounced as in “suspicious”, and Wiktionary helpfully provides the following guide:

Development

The project by default uses Poetry, and make install should get you up and running with all the dev dependencies. After that see other make commands for convenience. They correspond to CI checks required for changes to be merged in.

The main branch is the bleeding edge version. Git tags correspond to releases.
