ao.shorturl is a library for integrating short URLs to a web application. Its front-end configuration is not specific to any web application framework, instead it uses various back-ends for different frameworks.
For example, ao.shorturl.appengine implements a Datastore backand for Google / Typhoon App Engine. If installed as a Django application, ao.shorturl also provides a template tag for easily displaying short URLs for any object that supports them.
In a nutshell: I'm a Python developer who mainly focuses on open source web application frameworks and toolkits such as WebCore, Repoze, Zope/BlueBream, Django, etc. In my previous projects I have developed scalable, component-based, well-tested, WSGI-compliant web applications.
My goal is to help in the development of open source applications and web toolkits that implement the WSGI specification.
