URL shortener Microservice

By Roel Verbunt | Project GitHub

User Stories:
  1. I can pass a URL as a parameter and I will receive a shortened URL in the JSON response.
  2. If I pass an invalid URL that doesn't follow the valid http://www.example.com format, the JSON response will contain an error instead.
  3. When I visit that shortened URL, it will redirect me to my original link.

Example usage:

https://shumicro.herokuapp.com/new/http://freecodecamp.com/about

Example output:

{"original_url": "http://www.google.com", "short_url": "https://shumicro.herokuapp.com/nx1au"}
