HTTP status codes for GET and POST requests

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 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

Upgrade

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.

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>
