Bug Description

U.NU is my most used url shortening service and I'd like to continue using it, so I've modified one of the search scripts and made it work with U.NU.

I was hoping to have it included with Gwibber installs and updates soon. I wasn't sure what the "*.pyc" files were, but here is the unu.py script (attached, wasn't sure how else to submit additions).

Other files that need to be updated to mention this addition:
../gwibber/microblog/urlshorter/__init__.py

Now u.nu is the shortest! I like to have that also in the future. Thank you for sharing.
Requested to #ubuntu-bugs to set as WISHLIST.

Thanks guys for pushing the status and importance forward! I'm looking forward to Gwibber integration in not only Gnome, but for me personally into Ubuntu! Glad to see my help is accepted and appreciated! This only makes me want to push some more improvements! ;)

I retested the url shorteners I've posted so far and they all work, however, I've fixed a bug for the U.NU script where the returned string contained a line break at the end of the url. Now the line break is striped and only the url is returned.

Updated fix attached (v0.2).

The file:
../gwibber/microblog/urlshorter/__init__.py

..Should be edited to list and enable these three shorteners as well.

Hello there,

I"ve added the code to use the http://migre.me URL shortener. Hope it's of some use.

Cheers,

What happened here? I never seen these additional URL shortening services ‘in the wild’.

This applies for current Gwibber 3.2 series?
