Hi!!!

Continuing down my journey of flasky stuff, here is a nice and simple url shortener/disguiser thingy.

Example: https://url.codingcactus.codes/3

Have fun, hasn't been tested much so please tell me about all the bugs there will be

Thanks, have a nice day

I suggest make another input that manages the slug
not a random slug
I can use it with nodejs, it named slugify

@CodingCactus you don't know what is the slug?

ZDev1 (651)

@CodingCactus slug is those:

things in the url, like https://url.codingcactus.codes/3 so 3 is the slug!

CodingCactus (3038)

@ZDev1 ok, so with regards to the original comment, it is not a random 'slug'

ZDev1 (651)

@CodingCactus yes we need to make a new input to let the user to choose his slug

ZDev1 (651)

@CodingCactus but the problem is I don't know flask a lot

CodingCactus (3038)

@ZDev1 why should they be able to choose their own? things like tinyurl.com don't.

@CodingCactus ok that's your opinion!
I just gave you an opinion ;)

@ZDev1 it's a url shortener, its already longer than many urls like this, it will be longer than 99% of all urls if he does that
