Bitly.jl is a Julia package for accessing the Bitly API. Bitly is a popular link shortening service.


julia> using Bitly

julia> b = BitlyToken()
Bitly API Connection
        token: # hidden for my safety :)

julia> S = shorten(b,"")
(link = "", response = Dict{String,Any}("deeplinks" => Any[],"created_at" => "2020-03-28T00:59:02+0000","references" => Dict{String,Any}("group" => ""),"archived" => false,"id" => "","custom_bitlinks" => Any[],"link" => "","tags" => Any[],"long_url" => ""))



Right now the package implements only basic methods associated with the service:

  • obtaining token via requestBitlyToken
  • link shortening via shorten
  • link expansion via expand
  • click statistics via clicks

This package is very much incomplete, but it does provide the basic functionality. It does what I need it to do.

I am open to pull requests that extend or improve existing features.

See the documentation for more information.


I am not affiliated in any way with Bitly, nor does this package come with any guarantees.
