Bitly-Shorten, Isgd-Shorten and Akismet-Kotlin

I've released three libraries for Kotlin/Java:

  • Bitly Shortener

    A simple implementation of the URL shortening (bitlinks) abilities of the Bitly v4 API.

    bitly.bitlinks().shorten("https://www.example.com/")

  • is.gd Shortener

    A simple implementation of the is.gd API for URL shortening.

    Isgd.shorten("https://www.example.com/")

  • Akismet

    A pretty complete and straightforward implementation of the Automattic's Akismet API, a free service which can be used to actively stop comments spam.

    val akismet = Akismet(apiKey = "API_KEY", blog = "https://www.example.com/")
    val comment = AkismetComment(request = context.getRequest())
    val isSpam = akismet.checkComment(comment)
