Url Grey

Picard's favorite URL shortener. Built on Rails 5 and PostgreSQL. I have been working on this since May 2017. I work on it tiny feature by tiny feature in my spare time. It is not the most mature or feature full URL shortener out there, but the code is clean, and it's the one I made. So yea, I'm proud of it.
Check out the sourcecode.
