Textexpander for short urls

06 Mar 2014

I use textexpander all the time, it's great for dates, I type ddate to expand to 2014.03.6 for example, or ;pemail to get bill@bigmojo.net, generally it's just very handy.

Here's a script I use for url shortening, to use it

  1. copy and paste the following code into textexpander, setting it to be applescript
  2. set it's shortcut to be gshort
  3. copy a url (any url)
  4. in another window (messenger is my most common use case) type gshort

That should be it, you should now get a goo.gl url pasted into your window.
