Download a dist file and self-host Shlink yourself, or just drop the docker image on your container-based infrastructure.
You can convert a long URL into a short one by letting Shlink generate a unique short code for you, or by providing a custom human-friendly slug.
Publish your short URLs in social networks, send them via email or use them on your marketing campaigns.
Every time a user clicks on a short URL, Shlink will collect anonymized visit stats and geolocate the visitor.
The name is an abbreviation for "short link", but if you get the words "shrink" and "link" together, the result is shlink too. It is also the sound made by a sword being unsheathed.
Shlink is a PHP-based open source project, distributed under the MIT license and hosted on Github.
It is built with cutting edge technologies, such as Mezzio (formerly Zend Expressive), Doctrine and Symfony.
