Hey fellas, I’ve got this little exercise I did to do a mass url shortener using TinyURL API as an example, also I added a big list of API’s for shortening URLs like Bit.ly, Tiny.cc and more.

You might not have any use for this, but its good for education, we didn’t use any cURL because the API is opened and with a simple file_get_contents we can see the result when we input the url to the main gate of this API, check it out:

So with this example you can create your own functions either using file_get_contents for open API’s or cURL making POST request with proper credentials to get the output.

So here is the promised list of URL shortener services, I don’t know if some of them might help to cloak or anything, you will have to try it:

Try it yourself and let me know how it worked 😉

Im done by today I might come with other stuff later, Im on my PHP spree, I might change soon. So don’t question why I haven’t used other languages. I just feel like it.

 

cURL might be confusing for many, but it is matter of learning the basics on how to config the options, knowing which method (GET, POST, PUT) but..

Why in the hell would you use curl for? 

  • Requests to API’s sending parameters and stuff. Consume them easily.
  • Requests to websites, download and stuff.
  • Crawl websites parsing DOM and following links.
  • many more..

With this you will be able to easily do do cURL just using 1 line of code and pre-configured set up of cURL into a function and using switch in the function. So we can split to know which configuration needs to be done if GET, or which other with POST.

There are many guides on how to config cURL but there is one better than all guides:

http://php.net/manual/en/curl.examples-basic.php

But there are also plenty of wrappers built by many other coders, but now you understand how they create so easy wrappers, many using OOP and many others with functions and switch (which I like much more).

List of wrappers i found:

With that! you will be able to code like this lazy fat:

Hey wazzaaaaaAAA!

Well fuckers, we have something pretty cool today for all the music lovers, even we the bots love it, without it everything will be meaningless with lack of color in life.

To the point, what we are going to do:

  1. Automatically search for google results using a dork(explained below) for mp3.
  2. Grab the first 5 results from google.
  3. Download all mp3 files located on those urls.

google dork is a search command that will display pages with folders full of specific filetypes or more, so if you don’t know how to search you should do it this way:

“index of” + “mp3” + “radiohead” -html -htm -php

so this will look for folders (index of) that contains mp3 with the keyword radiohead and only display html, html and php pages.

The code is commented and well explained, if questions leave a comment.

The code is the same as we preview before in other posts, we have to define the search url using the dork, so we loop the first 5 results:

The point of this script is to download all the mp3 files you want from your favorite artist, don’t worry it will separate all the grabbed content into specific folder for each of the domain that was used to download them and respective folders, so you can navigate to each and select the final mp3 that will remain with you and erase the others.

What do you think? Ready to party?

Simple HTML DOM is a PHP library that helps you parse the DOM and get to find things inside the DOM very fast, instead of using plain PHP that will take you hours to make your own libraries. There is another similar that is called PHP Selector.

What we want to do is to grab the results of Bing in this case.

 

So this is practically it, you are using the find() function from Simple HTML DOM library in the DOM to find the links.

If you need more help in this remember I can help with custom bots 😉
