Creating a URL Shortener app with Codeigniter Part 1

by alboyd on August 2nd, 2011

This is Part 1 of a tutorial on Codeigniter. In this tutorial we are going to create a URL shortener app like bitly.

Here is the source code for the app which is pretty much the starting point ( though I think I actually made a few changes after I saved this and before I did the first tutorial! I walk through those changes though in the first few minutes of the tutorial ).

I strongly recommend you watch all my videos in full screen mode. It’s the little button on the bottom right of the video. You will be able to see everything much better if you do.
