URL Shortener Microservice

User stories:
  • I can pass a URL as a parameter and I will receive a shortened URL in the JSON response.
  • If I pass an invalid URL that doesn't follow the valid http://www.example.com format, the JSON response will contain an error instead.
  • When I visit that shortened URL, it will redirect me to my original link.
Example usage:
  • url.lefkowitz.me/new/http://lefkowitz.me
Example output:
  • { "original_url":"http://lefkowitz.me", "short_url":"url.lefkowitz.me/rk5eps9xg" }
