Smurl from Python

Mind that age!

This blog post is 15 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

If you thought the Web Service example on the about page of was complicated, here's a much simpler version. I use this code on my very own site for the email notifications which will contain long URLs.

Feel free to steal this code into your own projects:

from urllib import urlopen, quote

# variable 'url' is defined elsewhere
if len(url) > 80:
    url = urlopen('' % quote(url)).read()

Was that hard?
