LovelyUrl is now finished. The features it comes with are way too simple:
It is supposed to return a short version of the pasted Url, to test this, I highly recommend to use an Amazon Url, those guys usually don’t mind storing several values in their Url structure.
This app also comes with a simple user authentication system; this translating two to functions, the Login and Register. There’s no recovery nor 2FA authentication due to the simplicity of the app which is just retrieving Urls data and nothing related to the user( there’s no user data displayed on any part of the app, not even your username and/or email).
However there’s a hidden value that get’s stored in your browser, that is the
xAuthToken a cookie that is needed to let the browser you have logged In into the app and this one also contains some user data which is highly encrypted and not even you will be able to translate it to readable English/Spanish/you-say!. This gets stored only if X users logs in or registers.
If by any chance you would like to prevent this from happening, the best two solutions in mind is to never create an account. Now, let’s say you have created one and have loggedIn also; well, press
F12 in your keyboard and access to the
Application tab, on the left side there’s going to be a menu and proceed to find the option of
Local Storage under the Storage menu. Right-click on the Url that makes the most sense to you(in our case, the url should like lovelyurl.herokuapp.com) and just clear it….this will log you out.
Overall the time it took for this to be built was about two days max. Yes, it took me about 4 – 5 days to release it but it was because I did not do shit at all in two days, I wanted to take break because I just thought this project was boring as hell lol.
Not a valid url error has been fixed.
Heart icon is now positioned on ‘center’ in mobile devices also. Thanks to this fiddle.
Error in if-statement causing a not a valid url error. Working on it…
