I’ve wanted to prototype an URL shortener some time ago to have a measure on how long it would take to do using a NoSQL DB to store stats and do analytics. The main reason would do it using cyclone and MongoDB, and later build over it to create a tracker, web analytics tool and maybe a NGINX module.

Seems like DSLs for web development are getting more solid in the python camp (alto I’m yet to see something like sinatra out of the box or something that spare me from too much CSS’ing).
Today I read about Bottle and Redis, and to keep things fresh, cooked up a PasteBin clone using Bottle and MongoDB. I may do it using Redis too, just to showcase the differences. It’s really easy to come up with prototypes using Bottle.
