Alternative to bitly

Sascha K 10 months ago in Feature requests • updated 10 months ago 2

Would you consider adding support for a self hosted alternative to bitly, such as Polr or Yourls? Both have APIs that are similar to bitly's, and are open source solutions that can be self hosted. Having control over my data is one of the main features that made me (and probably others too) use filerun instead of Google Drive.

You can configure FileRun to use any other URL shortening service. Please see the $config['app']['weblinks']['custom_url_shortener'] directive on the advanced configuration page of the documentation site.

Copying here the current configuration option:


$config['app']['weblinks']['custom_url_shortener'] ='http://your-site.com/yourls-api.php?signature=YOUR-SIGNATURE&action=shorturl&format=simple';The example is based on Yourls (https://yourls.org).
For shorteners which require the FileRun weblink address to be present in the URL, use the ### placeholder.
