const axios = require('axios');

axios.get('https://api.short.io/link_country/LINK_ID', {
   headers: {
    accept:'*/*',
    authorization: '<<apiKey>>'
}
})
.then(function (response) {
  console.log(response.data);
})
.catch(function (response) {
  console.log(response);
});
require 'uri'
require 'net/http'
require 'openssl'

url = URI("https://api.short.io/link_country/LINK_ID")

http = Net::HTTP.new(url.host, url.port)
http.use_ssl = true
