Shlink web client

Progressive web application

Manage shlink using this beautiful and intuitive progressive web application, or build your own.

Shlink will track all the visits to your short URLs, saving detailed information and then transparently redirecting the visitor to the long URL:

  • Referer
  • Remote IP address
  • Location of the visitor
  • User agent

What makes Shlink different?

Shlink adds a lot of features which are not usually available in other free services.

Why shlink?

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.
