Project description

Unshortens ad-based urls and 301 redirects. Supports adf.ly, lnx.lu, linkbucks.com, sh.st, and adfoc.us

Features

  • Supports unshortening the following ad-based shortners:
    • Adf.ly and related subdomains
    • Custom adf.ly domains by passing the type=’adfly’ parameter
    • Lnx.lu
    • Linkbucks.com and related subdomains (Selenium library with PhantomJS required)
    • Adfoc.us
    • Sh.st
  • Supports any 301 redirected urls
  • Python 2.7 and 3.3 support

Usage

import unshortenit unshortened_uri,status = unshortenit.unshorten(‘http://ul.to’)

> unshortenit.unshorten will return a tuple (unshortened_uri,status)

> unshortened_uri will contain the unshortened uri. If you pass in a non-shortener url it will return the original url. > status will contain the status code or any error messages

Installation

pip install unshortenit

In order to enable linkbucks.com support you will need to install selenium along with PhantomJS.
