Hey, could you tell me the domain name you're using? Might be a DNS or TLS certificate issue.

Finally got around to looking into the short tool. Refactored its code and added unit/regression tests. I also fixed that deprecation warning in the deploy tool. Just verified that it works on my machineโ„ข๏ธ. ๐Ÿ˜…

Will take a look at editing the Commons Host docs. Right now it's partly my own docs to configure the CDN platform, mixed in with docs for users of the various offered services (CDN, static hosting, DNS over HTTPS, even a Gopher client and proxy ๐Ÿ˜).

hey, thanks for getting back to me!

after reading your comment i reviewed my notes and app from back then and gave it all another try and this time around things seem to work just fine. additionally, i've updated short to version 5.1.0 and sure enough, no more deprecation warning. most excellent. so i've got a working cli shortener.

now that it's working of course i want to take it further, i saw in another comment the link to the api which is exciting. i'm not entirely certain how to work with it, but i've started by installing @commonshost/short as a dev-dependency in a new project. i'm going to hack on this some over the weekend.
