Modern, lightweight, planet-scale link shortener for teams ๐ŸŽ‰

Easy to setup, connect with your org's SSO, and hook up analytics!

Blink is a link shortener that is:

  • Simple and Lightweight: the simple "base" architecture means you can literally host it for free, and maintenance is easy.
  • Planet-Scale: you can host Blink alone for simplicity, or put a CDN in front of it to scale out Blink and easily plug in your own analytics!
  • For Teams: external identity/SSO via OIDC/OAuth support is baked right into Blink; no need to pay $$$$$ or hack together SSO support via reverse proxies! Plus, baked in access control (RBAC)!

This project is based off of Express-Objection-Template, and heavily uses objection-authorize and objection-hashid to drive much of "hidden" logic and make isomorphism possible.
