Announcing dgo.to! A URL mapper for drupal.org (lovingly called "drupal goto"). dgo.to shortens and smartens URLs that map to drupal.org pages. See the examples below:

Project links

dgo.to/viewshttp://drupal.org/project/views

Issue queues

dgo.to/i/drupalhttp://drupal.org/project/issues/drupal

Node numbers

dgo.to/118536http://drupal.org/node/118536

Users

Users will automatically be searched and forwarded to the proper page.

dgo.to/@webchickhttp://drupal.org/user/24967

IRC handles

IRC handles will also be searched and then forwarded to the proper page.

dgo.to/irc/emspacehttp://drupal.org/user/35266

API

dgo.to/a/hook_menuhttp://api.drupal.org/hook_menu

Any comments/suggestions are welcome!

Or at least for Drupal projects: http://drupal.org/project/dopl

However, you took it further, and it will work on non-drupal applications as well - great idea!

Nice, thanks!

I'm happy to see that it even works when linking to specific comments. Currently this works:
http://dgo.to/444228#comment-2625826http://drupal.org/node/444228#comment-2625826

However, you could consider adding a shorter way to link to comments, for instance:
http://dgo.to/444228/2625826http://drupal.org/node/444228#comment-2625826

It's a smartener: why not just put the comment number on the page, not the cid?

support for linking to a comment doesn't seem to work anymore.
dunno if this applies to all URL fragments, or just comments.

I can't believe it took me two years to finally see these comments. I'm not certain why it stopped working, but the new version I'm working on will fix this properly.

Could we use it for other Drupal community sites like drupal.cz (czech community)?

nvahalik’s picture

I'm not certain what it could do exactly. What were you envisioning?
