- I've been planning to set up an URL shortener service for Wikipedia since at least 2011. While several other Wikipedia URL shorteners have come and gone in the meantime, I never managed to come up with a solution that was universal enough. The reason is that I want to cover not just the English Wikipedia, but also the other language ones, especially the Bulgarian, where the problem with long URLs due to percent-encoded paths is especially pronounced. So, if you have some bright idea how to achieve this—in an elegant and flexible way—don't hesitate to contact me. Meanwhile, a few short URLs do already work. Links of the type
wik.pe/<lang>(e.g. http://wik.pe/en) point to the respective language version of Wikipedia. Links of the type
wik.pe/u/<username>(e.g. http://wik.pe/u/iliev) point to the respective user page on Meta. Last but not least,
wik.pe/jimbopoints, perhaps not too surprisingly, to Jimbo's user page. Additionally, you may stumble upon addresses like http://wik.pe/wle2016bg and http://wik.pe/wle2016md.
