HTTP status codes for GET and POST requests
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)
You can install status with the Python package manager pip using the following command:
pip install status
or download the source repository and run the following command in the top level source directory:
python setup.py install
You can upgrade to the current release version of status with the Python package manager pip:
$ pip install --upgrade status
or by downloading the source repository and following the instructions for a new install from source above.
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:
POST Request Status Codes
To use a POST request, add the
status -p <url>
