For your browser: shorten with akos.ma

(drag and drop on your bookmark toolbar)

API

Send a POST or GET request to akos.ma with a "url" parameter, with either an "Accept: application/javascript" or "Accept: text/xml" header. You'll get a simple text response with the shortened URL:

$ curl --request GET --header "Accept: application/javascript" http://akos.ma/\?url=http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920026877.do
http://akos.ma/st2ur
$ _

You can also send a "reverse" parameter with the shortened key (not the whole URL, just the key) and you'll get the original URL in return:

$ curl --request GET --header "Accept: text/xml" http://akos.ma/\?reverse=st2ur
http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920026877.do
$ _
