url shortening API: The Daily REST library entry for Excel and GAScript

Shorten URL API directly into an Excel or Google Spreadsheet

Today’s API is from “ttb.li” which is a url shortening service. This is a query  by row API, populating columns in a spreadsheet row using a value in a given column. Here’s an example – you supply a list of long urls. It will give you back shortened versions.

Here’s the Excel code (included in cDataSet.xlsm downloadable from the ramblings site)

and the GAS version (included in a Google Spreadsheet) using the mcpher GAS library

The rest library is itself implemented as REST API and can be queried like this.
Or better yet, shorten the url using the api above and get the whole thing with http://ttb.li/se5cm

For more stuff like this, visit the ramblings site or the associated blog. If you have suggestion for particular API or contact me on our forum

I am a Google Developer Expert and decided to investigate Google Apps Script in my spare time. The more I investigated the more content I created so this site is extremely rich. Now, in 2019, a lot of things have disappeared or don’t work anymore due to Google having retired some stuff. I am however leaving things as is and where I came across some deprecated stuff, I have indicated it. I decided to write a book about it and to also create videos to teach developers who want to learn Google Apps Script. If you find the material contained in this site useful, you can support me by buying my books and or videos.
