Brevis URL Shortener

Brevis is a URL Shortener web application which allows users to type in any URL and Brevis will generate a shorten version of that URL. Think of Brevis as a simplified version of Bitly. The main requirements of this project was a technical requirement, being that it has to be implemented using a Full Stack architecture using React.js, Express.js, and MongoDB. Brevis is also available for download as open source software on my GitHub repository. You can check it out by clicking the button below. Disclaimer - Do not try to go to brevis.com as I do not own that domain. It was already taken before the project began. Also, this project is currently being worked on. It is NOT FINISHED yet (ongoing).

The Technology Stack


This project was mainly inspired by my desire to learn ReactJS as well as combining it with a backend solution, ExpressJS, to practice my Full Stack Web App Development skills. I chose MongoDB as my database since it works well with NodeJS based applications, and implementation is quick and easy.
