I recently purchased shaun.in (ooh, dynamically generated SVG). Because the domain itself is so short (compared to the verbose shauninman.com) and in light of the current volatility exhibited by third-party url shorteners, I thought I would try my hand at rolling my own shortener. A few people have inquired about it so here we are.
Lessn is an extremely simple, personal url shortener written in PHP with MySQL and mod_rewrite. Download the latest version of Lessn and check out the included
README.txt for installation instructions. I’m not sure about minimum requirements but I’ve been using it with PHP
5.2.6 and MySQL
5.0.41 and users have reported success with PHP
4.4.8 and MySQL
Lessn is offered free, as is, sans support and without warranty (but is really not as scary as all that).
