We use a custom shortlink service at
link.hypha.coop. It helps us:
- resolve keywords to URLs from any computer,
- make commonly used resources quickly and easily accessible,
- simplify link-sharing in spoken conversations, and
- align on shorthand keywords for resources.
Instructions on creating and managing shortlinks are available in
configuration repo under
Hint: You can use a URL hash to deep-link into an expanded shortlink. Example: http://link.hypha.coop/inventory#LinkedIn
Shortlinks work on their own in the address bar, but for even easier access on your own workstation, you can add a "custom search engine" keyword to your browser.
This allows you to type something like
h<tab>shortlinks into the
search bar, and get https://link.hypha.coop/shortlinks
Here's a screencast of how it works on Chrome:
