For various products in our store, we wanted a way to be able to associated a shortish name with the full url to its entry in our store or blog. As Go seems to be gaining traction as the go-to language for writing web services we decided to write yaurls in Go. This is our 1st proper application written in Go, but based on this, I don’t expect it to be our last.
Yaurls is currently live on our servers, mapping names from http://njohn.uk/go to http://thingsforhackers.com.
We’ve decided to release the source code to the community in the hope that someone else might find it useful or maybe learn from it. And possible even improve it ;-).
Please visit our github site for the source code and an overview of its operation.comments powered by Disqus
