HTTP status code reporting for GET and POST requests

Project description

About

status is a cross-platform command line application that returns the HTTP response status code for a GET or POST request to a user submitted URL.

It has been tested in cPython 2.7.x, 3.4.x and pypy 2.4.0 (Python v2.7.8)

Install

You can install status with the Python package manager pip:

pip install status

or download the source repository and run the following command in the top level source directory:

python setup.py install

Upgrade

You can upgrade status with pip. Use the following command:

pip install --upgrade status

or download the source repository and use the above instructions for a new install from source.

Usage

status will report the returned status code with a GET or POST request. The general syntax is:

status [option] <url>

It is not necessary to include the protocol (http://) in your URL. If you enter a URL without the protocol, status will prefix it with http://. If you intend to test with the secure HTTP protocol (https://), then make this explicit in your URL.

GET Request Status Codes

GET is the default request type. Enter the URL as an argument to status without an option:

status <url>

POST Request Status Codes

To use a POST request, add the -p or --post option:

status -p <url>
