LooooongURL

#1 Post by smaragdus » Mon Mar 20, 2017 4:40 pm

LooooongURL is a tiny program (86 KB compressed, 97 KB uncompressed) which reveals the actual links behind shortened ones.

Synopsis - Google Translate plus some editing.
The program is designed to expand the links, shortened with services such as goo.gl, bit.ly, tinyurl.com and others. It can be useful to know in advance where you are going to be redirected to.
Features
LooooongURL has one purpose- to expand shortened URLs.

Links
Home Page - http://www.manhunter.ru/releases/1115_l ... l_1_0.html - (in Russian)
Publisher - http://www.manhunter.ru/ - (in Russian)

Downloads
Direct Download Link for LooooongURL version 1.0.0.0 - note that some download managers fail to download the file and in my case I needed to download it via a web-browser. (Edit- direct download links do not work- download LooooongURL from its website.)

Not stealth - uses IE engine (obviously), saves cookies.
You can do this with all details through Wget (or cURL):

Code: Select all

wget.exe -S --spider "http://bit.ly/1RWFFFX"

Not best example because of endless redirects :mrgreen:

Lintalist comes in handy for keeping these type of commands in one place. Just enter the wget command into the script section. Don't include the working directory line if wget path is already set. See attached screenshot.

Code: Select all

;Run wget to get website info and/or full URL from shortened URL in Clipboard
SetWorkingDir, F:\Utilities\commandlinetools\downloadUtilties\wget_and_curl
Run, cmd /k wget.exe -S --spider "%ClipBoard%"
Just select and copy the URL and double-click the entry in Lintalist, or assign a hotkey or shorthand. You could also add code to filter the output, send output to a timed message box, or use selected text instead of the clipboard to obtain the wget input URL, but this is probably the simplest method.

  • Many redirects are performed, all is written in the log.

I absolutely do not care about Internet Explorer- I do not use it and I regularly purge it with cleaners (lots of programs rely on IE and even open their websites not in the default browser but in Internet Explorer).
I am not a fan pf command line tools, I always prefer GUI.
