Available periods for statistics: today, yesterday, total, week, month, lastmonth, last7, last30 and custom.

import requests

url = "https://api-v2.short.io/statistics/link/linkID"

querystring = {"period":"total","tzOffset":"0"}

headers = {
    'accept': "*/*",
    'authorization': "<<apiKey>>"
    }

response = requests.request("GET", url, headers=headers, params=querystring)

print(response.text)
const qs = require('qs')
const axios = require('axios');

axios.get('https://api-v2.short.io/statistics/link/linkID', {
    params: {
        period: 'total', 
        tzOffset: '0'
},
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-v2.short.io/statistics/link/linkID?period=total&tzOffset=0")

http = Net::HTTP.new(url.host, url.port)
http.use_ssl = true
http.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE

request = Net::HTTP::Get.new(url)
request["accept"] = '*/*'
request["authorization"] = '<<apiKey>>'

response = http.request(request)
puts response.read_body

5) Launch the file.

python filename.py
node filename.js
ruby filename.rb

6) JSON Response.

Once you run the code, you will see the response.

7) How to request statistics for a custom period

🚧

startDate and endDate parameters require date format in milliseconds from epoch.
Here you can convert your date: https://www.epochconverter.com/

pip install arrow
import requests
import arrow

url = "https://api-v2.short.cm/statistics/link/linkID"

querystring = {"period":"custom","tzOffset":"0","startDate": arrow.get('2020-05-01T21:23:58.970460+07:00').timestamp * 1000,"endDate": arrow.get('2020-05-04T21:23:58.970460+07:00').timestamp * 1000}

headers = {
    'accept': "*/*",
    'authorization': "<<apiKey>>"
    }

response = requests.request("GET", url, headers=headers, params=querystring)

print(response.text)
const qs = require('qs')
const axios = require('axios');

axios.get('https://api-v2.short.cm/statistics/link/283366412', {
    params: {
        period: 'total', 
        tzOffset: '0',
        startDate: new Date("2020-04-30T15:56:53").valueOf(), 
        endDate: new Date("2020-05-05T15:56:53").valueOf()
},
headers: {
    accept:'*/*',
    authorization: '<<apiKey>>'
