This is a handy little helper that puts HTTP reference at your fingertips, when you're on the CLI, when you need it.
Because I can never remember what the bloody http status codes mean, or the details of methods, or whatever. It's annoying!
Why not just wikipedia?
Well it boils down to 2 things:
- If I use the browser then it means that I have to use the mouse, or a track pad or something.
- I'm a little bored on a Friday night. There's some rubbish film on. Quite frankly I'm a little bored.
- If I make it good enough then people will give me stars. This, as everyone knows, is a proxy for love and it will make up for many deficiencies in my life.
- My attention to detail is incredible. I therefore invite you to sponsor me using the links at the top of the page. :)
Before we get any further, I'm really interested in how you feel about this tool. Please take the time to fill in this short survey: https://forms.gle/mHh6idwwUvdfYZM67

$ httpref 1 1xx Informational response 100 Continue 101 Switching 102 Processing 103 Early hints $ httpref 200 200 - OK The HTTP 200 OK success status response code indicates that the request has succeeded. A 200 response is cacheable by default. The meaning of a success depends on the HTTP request method: GET: The resource has been fetched and is transmitted in the message body. HEAD: The entity headers are in the message body. POST: The resource describing the result of the action is transmitted in the message body. TRACE: The message body contains the request message as received by the server. The successful result of a PUT or a DELETE is often not a 200 OK but a 204 No Content (or a 201 Created when the resource is uploaded for the first time). https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/200 $ httpref <div> <div> The Content Division element The <div> HTML element is the generic container for flow content. It has no effect on the content or layout until styled in some way using "CSS" (e.g. styling is directly applied to it, or some kind of layout model like Flexbox is applied to its parent element). https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/div

HTML Elements Reference
html subcommand looks up 100+ active and deprecated HTML elements.
$ httpref html <abbr> <abbr> The Abbreviation element The <abbr> HTML element represents an abbreviation or acronym. When including an abbreviation or acronym, provide a full expansion of the term in plain text on first use, along with the "<abbr>" to mark up the abbreviation. This informs the user what the abbreviation or acronym means. The optional "title" attribute can provide an expansion for the abbreviation or acronym when a full expansion is not present. This provides a hint to user agents on how to announce/display the content while informing all users what the abbreviation means. If present, "title" must contain this full description and nothing else. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/abbr $ httpref html --search anchor <a> The Anchor element The <a> HTML element (or _anchor_ element), with its "href" attribute, creates a hyperlink to web pages, files, email addresses, locations in the same page, or anything else a URL can address. Content within each "<a>" _should_ indicate the link's destination. If the "href" attribute is present, pressing the enter key while focused on the "<a>" element will activate it. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/a
