    **I am in no way endorsed by to create this plugin. I did it for fun, and I am sharing it with you guys.**


    What is
    What is Shortest4MC?
    Using Shortest4MC, we can harness the power of Whenever a link is put in chat, it is automatically converted to a link, using your API token(set in the config). Whenever someone clicks that link, it will open up a ad, and give you(Server owner) some money!

    How do I set it up?
    1. Drag the Shortest.jar into the "plugins" folder in your server.
    2. Restart your server
    3. Create an account on
    4. Go to, and copy your API token.
    5. Edit the config.yml to your liking, and save it.
    6. Restart your server.
    7. Post a link in chat.
    How does it Work?
    When someone posts a link in chat, the plugin will submit an API request to the 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 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.

    Supporting Me
    There are 3 ways you can support me:
    1. Use my referral link- When signing up, please use my link. It will allow me to receive 20% of your earnings.
    2. Keep "support_developer" to true - With this to true, I have a 1 in 10 chance of receiving money from that link.
    3. Donate - If you really liked the plugin, you can directly donate to me here.

    Good plugin. I will keep support_developer on true!
    Would be nice to see a permission where my VIP players can't see the shortest links, and not that their won't be shortened.
