# Go (URL Shortener)
A project of [GMU SRCT](
Go is a drop-in URL shortening service. It aims to provide an easily
branded service for institutions that wish to widely disseminate
information without unnecessarily outsourcing branding.
## To Do
* qr codes on links view-- need to save the pictures somewhere, render
inline as well as in different formats and sizes for download, and be
deleted along with the links
* Update the user authentication system (ie. port it to CAS to play nicely
with GMU)
* Update the user registration system. Make it more intuitive to first time
users, also update the connection between registered users and actual
user auth accounts on the database.
* Set up Piwik to work with Go.
* Update the documentation on Go to include a setup guide
* Update the interface to bootswatch, perhaps? Maybe the same stylesheet as
is used on SRCTWeb. (ie. complete HTML overhaul)
* Remove all Mason-specific branding.
## Configuration
The settings file should already be configured acceptably. You may need to
add a different authentication backend or database engine.
### nginx / Apache
You must configure an outside web server to properly host the static file
required to run this Django app.
### Python
To install the required Python modules, simply execute
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
and you should be good to go.
