Web Shortener Module¶
The web_shortener module allows URLs to be shortened. It counts the number of times the URL is accessed and optionally triggers action.
The module defines a route /s/ which will redirect the queries to the URL registered previously with ShortenedURL.get_url.
Models that need to be callable from a shortened URL must define the method shortened_url_execute. This class method will be called from the underlying queue with the record and the keywords arguments transmitted when calling get_url.
Shortened URL: The shortened URL
Redirect URL: The URL the request is redirected to
Record: The record on which method will be executed
Method: The name of the method to call on record
Count: The number of times this shortened URL has been triggered
The web_shortener modules uses the parameter from the section:
shortener_base: The base URL without path for shortened URL. The default value is composed with the configuration [web] hostname.
