301, an uri redirector

„create short links for long web addresses”

301 is an uri redirector. It allows you to create short links for complex web addresses. Just submit a longish uri in the form below (or use this bookmarklet) and you will get a short link that points to the original address. You can pass this on twitter, in irc or whereever you want to avoid complex web addresses.

The service was inspired by tinyurl.com and monkey.org/sl. In contrast to their services, 301 comes along with full python source code. This give you freedom to run your own 301 service and adopt it to your needs. Get the source code at benjamin-schweizer.de/301.html.
