Unshortens adf.ly, adfoc.us, lnx.lu, linkbucks, and any 301 redirected shortener urls

Latest Version: 0.2.0

Unshortens ad-based urls and 301 redirects. Supports adf.ly, lnx.lu, linkbucks.com, and adfoc.us

Features

  • Supports unshortening the following ad-based shortners:
    • Adf.ly and related subdomains (PyV8 library required)
    • Custom adf.ly domains by passing the type='adfly' parameter
    • Lnx.lu
    • Linkbucks.com and related subdomains
    • Adfoc.us
  • Supports any 301 redirected urls

  • Python 2.7 and 3.3 support

Usage

import unshortenit unshortened_uri,status = unshortenit.unshorten('http://ul.to')

> unshortenit.unshorten will return a tuple (unshortened_uri,status)

> unshortened_uri will contain the unshortened uri. If you pass in a non-shortener url it will return the original url. > status will contain the status code or any error messages

Installation

pip install unshortenit

In order to enable adf.ly support you will need to install the PyV8 library. This will need to be compiled from source.
