An Objective-C bit.ly API implementation using SBJson and ASI

Posted by on September 13th, 2011.

I was in a need of a bit.ly integration for URL shortening for a client recently. I found a great one called ILBitly, but it was built on top of AFNetworking and JSONKit. Since I didn’t want to introduce these additional dependencies into the app, I created an updated version of ILBitly called BRBitly. It has an identical interface to ILBitly but relies on a difference set of 3rd party dependencies (namely SBJson and ASI).

Thanks to Claus for his great work. If you are starting a new project, I would go with ILBitly, but BRBitly is another option.
