mdf (Mutt Display Filter)

A custom mutt display filter. It has two components: a daemon for minifying URLs and an executable to use as the display filter.


  • URL shortening (works by running a redirecter daemon which serves redirect pages)
  • Email formatting normalization
  • Date header normalization to local timezone
  • Git diff highlighting

Redirecter Usage

Note that it is not guaranteed to generate unique IDs, but that’s fine since they are random enough.

POST /new

Create a new redirect page. Send the URL in the body of the request.

Returns an ID to use below.

GET /{id}

Serve a redirect page.
