Using the API with AHK

24 Feb 2016, 05:18

Here's how to get an API key (required) quickly:
  • Head over to and create a new project.
  • Select 'API Manager' from the hamburger menu
  • Hit 'URL Shortener API' under 'Other Popular APIs'
  • Click 'Enable'
  • In 'Credentials' section, click 'Create Credentials' and select 'API key'. Select the 'Browser key' option.

    And you'll get a shiny, new API key!
Now, all you need to do is put the API key in the var api_key in the script you can download from here: Github.
