ToolingTuesday-Ping

Simple application to show off how the Halo terminal spinner for Python can be used to advise the user on the success or failure of a ping request.

It works like this! alt

The ping.py file will need to be made executable, on Linux we can do this with.

sudo chmod +x ping.py

Then run the application, with the URL or IP address as an argument.

./ping.py google.co.uk

or

./ping.py 8.8.8.8

This project uses the Halo spinner library.
