**I am in no way endorsed by Shorte.st to create this plugin. I did it for fun, and I am sharing it with you guys.**
What is Shorte.st?
What is Shortest4MC?
Using Shortest4MC, we can harness the power of Shorte.st. Whenever a link is put in chat, it is automatically converted to a shorte.st link, using your API token(set in the config). Whenever someone clicks that link, it will open up a Shorte.st ad, and give you(Server owner) some money!
How do I set it up?
How does it Work?
- Drag the Shortest.jar into the "plugins" folder in your server.
- Restart your server
- Create an account on Shorte.st
- Go to https://shorte.st/tools, and copy your API token.
- Edit the config.yml to your liking, and save it.
- Restart your server.
- Post a link in chat.
When someone posts a link in chat, the plugin will submit an API request to the Shorte.st website. It will use your token(from config) in the request, and it will return a shortened link, tied to your account, which will link to the originally posted link.
shortest.bypass - Anyone with this permission will not have their links shortened.
api_token : This is your API token from the Shorte.st site. It will allow the links to be tied to your account, and give you money!
support_developer: When true, the plugin has a 1 in 10 chance of using my personal API token for the link, instead of yours. This helps me out just a bit.
