Shorten URLs in the text using Bitly.


A PopClip extension to shorten URLs using Bitly.

The extension defines a single action called "Bitly", which is enabled when the input contains one or more web URLs. The action shortens all the detected URLs using the logged-in Bitly account, and outputs the result to be pasted or copied.

If you try to shorten an already-shortened Bitly link, you'll get an error.


Requires PopClip 2021.11 or above, and a Bitly account.
