Using Python to shorten a URL with Google's shortening service (goo.gl):
# Corey Goldberg - 2010
gurl = 'http://goo.gl/api/url?url=%s' % urllib.quote(url)
req = urllib2.Request(gurl, data='')
results = json.load(urllib2.urlopen(req))
if __name__ == '__main__':
You give it a URL to shorten: shorten('http://www.goldb.org/long_url')
... and it returns a shortened URL for you: 'http://goo.gl/jh4W'
