API for Short URL

» YEP Application Programming Interface (API)
API Intro & References

yep.it exposes its data via an Application Programming Interface (API), so developers can interact in a programmatic way with the yep.it website. This document is the official reference for that functionality. The current API version is 0.1 and must be considered as early Beta stage of development.

» API Examples
Short URL generated by API

Sample generation of the URL. With the command ?url= the short URL is created with a random tag of automatic 5 chars text:
  Yep that Url!http://yep.it/api.php?url=URL

Extended generation of the URL. With the addiction of command &tag= your URL can have a personalized tag (maximum 8 alphanumeric chars):
  Yep that Url!http://yep.it/api.php?url=URL&tag=TAG

Track the URL clicks. With the tag (automatically created or personalized one), you can track the clicks of your short URL with the ?track= command:
  Yep that Url! http://yep.it/api.php?track=http://yep.it/TAG or
  Yep that Url! http://yep.it/api.php?track=TAG
The output will be:
  Yep that Url! http://yep.it/tag (20)

Check the URL content. With the tag (automatically created or personalized one), you can check the content of your short URL with the ?check= command:
  Yep that Url! http://yep.it/api.php?check=http://yep.it/TAG or
  Yep that Url! http://yep.it/api.php?check=TAG
The output will be:
  Yep that Url! Short URL: http://yep.it/tag
  Yep that Url!URL: http://real_url_inserted
  Yep that Url!Content: Real_URL_title_and_contents
  Yep that Url!Date: 2010-06-07 10:03:05 Clicks: 104494
