I've been writing a bookmarklet for Twitter that will allow you to post URLs to Twitter, that are first compressed using TinyURL.

So I thought I'd share the TinyURL callback API I wrote.

Attend ffconf 2016

The UK's best JS and web development conference. Find out more & get tickets.

The API allows the dynamic creation of TinyURLs on the fly using JavaScript.

The API url is: http://remysharp.com/tinyurlapi

Here's the source code for your own hosting: http://remysharp.com/downloads/tinyurlapi.php

There are full instructions and examples on the page along with a demonstration.

Note that since creating the script, TinyURL have changed their page so we can't create tinyurls on the fly (though we can still look up), so I've plugged in is.gk instead for creation.
