Description:

The bitly API CFC is a custom-written ColdFusion wrapper to interact with the bit.ly URL shortening service REST API.

Developed to be as easy to use as possible, the bitly CFC provides the ability to return the response data in either XML (default) or JSON.


== UPDATED VERSION ==

31/10/2010 - Version 2.1
================

   - Addition of OAuth 2 restricted functions to access user specific data
   - Updated methods now include:
      - userClicks, userReferrers, userCountries, userRealtimeLinks
      - buildAuthorisationLink and getAccessToken to cater for the OAuth 2 protocol interactions
   - Removal of deprecated 'authenticate' method / endpoint


13/10/2010 - Version 2.0
================

Four new methods added to provide analytical data of sorts, and the ability to generate QR Codes (2D Data matrix barcodes) to point towards the shortened URL.


02/08/2010 - Version 1.1
================

The bit.ly API is now at version 3.0.
As such, two methods were deprecated, and new methods added, which enhance the usability of the API and the functionality when adding it into your bespoke applications.


== Debugging ==

The bitly object accepts a third non-required parameter to toggle the format of the response output.
This allows the response to be output as a string or as structural information through the use of XmlParse() or DesrializeJSON() (depending on the selected output format)
