Building a URL shortener in 12 lines of code using Cloudflare Workers

Cloudflare Workers Cloudflare Workers is a serverless environment that runs Javascript. Basically, you just write code that handle HTTP requests, similarly to Node.js. The code is deployed globally across the Cloudflare network, which means it’s always running as close as possible to the end user. I was recently playing with Cloudflare Workers to see how it worked, and I realized how incredibly easy it was to make a simple URL shortener with it!
