URL Shortener Microservice

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:

Example output on failure:

{ "error": "You have entered an invalid url. Please check it once again." }

Example output on success:

{ "original_URL": "https://www.google.com", "short_URL": "aire" }

Example usage of the shortened url:
