Simple URL Shortener
A demo application for a very simple URL shortening service
The app relies on:
pip install url_shortener
python setup.py install
You can either modify the config.py file or provide environment variables to configure url_shortener. The following environment variables can be tweaked:
REDIS_HOST: Address at which the redis server lives, defaults to 127.0.0.1.
REDIS_PORT: Port on which to contact redis, defaults to 6379.
URL_PREFIX: URL scheme for your short url host
LISTEN_HOST: Address to bind to for the short url service
LISTEN_PORT: Port to bind to
RIEMANN_HOST: Address to use to contact riemann, defaults to 127.0.0.1
RIEMANN_PORT: Port to use to contact riemann, defaults to 5555
RIEMANN_PROTOCOL: Riemann protocol to use, defaults to UDP
LOG_FILE_PATH: Where to log, no defaults
LOG_LEVEL: level at which to log, defaults to DEBUG
When not run in debug mode, the application will output logs for consumption by logstash, using logstash_formatter
The service can simply be started by invoking: url-shortener, alternately deployments can be done with gunicorn. To start the service with gunicorn with 8 worker processes for instance, the following can be used:
gunicorn -w 8 --log-file=/var/log/url-shortener/gunicorn.log --log-level=info url_shortener:app
