Gonna set up my own “URL shortener,” just because I can. Not sure if should go for an API solution of sorts, or something simpler, based off actual post IDs or something.
Did a—granted, very—quick search, couldn’t find much that was PHP-based and up-to-date, so https://github.com/janboddez/url-shortener …
Previously built a Webmention endpoint on Lumen, too. Worked wonders, although I’ll probably end up making it a Laravel package. (I made an IndieAuth thingy, too, which requires you sign in somehow—like, with a username and password—so that’s def more of a Laravel thing. I mean it, issues [and verifies] *tokens*, but you obviously have to authenticate yourself [and, potentially authorize clients] first.)
