I have always been fascinated with the Google App Engine (GAE) concept.
In the past I have posted a couple of “Getting Started” technical articles about GAE, however I never had the chance to spent more time with it.
Last week I came up with an idea about a possible Web application. And I thought that it would be cool to implement it on GAE’s infrastructure.
It was also exciting that I would have to use Python for the first time on a real project. Most of my previous Web applications were developed on PHP or ASP.NET platforms.
Anyway, the web application I’m talking about is RapidLinkr, which is now up and running on GAE!
I just hope that Google App Engine’s free quota will be more than enough.
Here is what RapidLinkr is all about:
The user inputs a list of links in plain text form, via copy/paste or by typing them.
The application is parsing those links, and outputs them as HTML hyperlinks. Now the user can rapidly open all these links in new tabs/windows via a single click! Or else click on any of the formed hyperlinks to open them.
It has to be mentioned that all links entered are in no way permanently stored or recorded.
Thus, if you are tired, or simply don’t have enough time to spent on opening lots of links manually, RapidLinkr might be the right tool for you!
Enjoy the service, feedback and comments are always welcome.
