Earlier this week Dave Winer pointed out some neat stuff Readability was up to. Part of the piece pointed out a new URL shortener. I marked it and came back to it today. Since I love writing code to talk to RESTful web services, why not write another one?
This afternoon I started on RFRddMe, an Objective-C library for the Readability Shortener Service. Late this afternoon I completed the library, and I checked it into my GitHub Repository tonight. Figuring out git submodules took a bit of time, but it works as advertised.
If you just happen to be looking for Objective-C code to shorten a URL, and add an article to Readability, look no further.
Get the code for RFRddMe on GitHub.
Please, drop me a line, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you use the code.
