What is da.gd?
da.gd is both a URL shortener and a collection of quick-info tools written in PHP. It allows you to use
curl (or any http client) to quickly retrieve various kinds of information such as your IP, useragent, whois for a given domain or IP, DNS lookups, etc., from an easy-to-remember url.
The goal of this project is to just make an easy to use, little-of-everything tool that works on any device or in any script in any situation. So far, some interesting ideas have been requested (and implemented). If you have an idea for a feature you would like to see, please either (order of preference):
- Fork, Add feature, Send pull request for review/merge.
- Ask relrod to implement it on irc (Libera) via PM.
- File it in the issue tracker.
Because a goal of this project is to have it work for many purposes/situations, I encourage feedback, ideas, participation, and interaction with this project. Have some fun with it :)
What currently works?
curl da.gd/help will give you a list of what is currenly available on the live site.
Getting a dev environment up
da.gd is slightly annoying to set up, but there are now docker-compose files in place to make it easier. You can get a quick development environment set up by doing this:
- Ensure you have a working
- Clone the dagd repository
- cd container
- For docker-compose:
- For podman-compose:
- Go to http://localhost:8080/ in your regular browser.
Note that the development environment is entirely ephemeral. Anything stored in the database will be lost when you
docker-compose down or
podman-compose down. That is, the files in
./container/ are not meant for production use.
