Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install http-verify --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "http_verify" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named http_verify to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  http_verify: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    your_target: {
      url: 'url to verify',
      conditions: [{
        type: 'statusCode|body|header',
        operator: 'contains|equals|exists', // Depends on which type.  See below.
        value: 'value to test for',
        nameValue: 'used for type header only.  insert the name of the header to test'
      callback: function(err) {
        if (!err) {
          // verification successful

Usage Examples

Status Code

In this example, the site is verified to return a 200 status code.

http_verify: {
  statusCode: {
    url: '',
    conditions: [
        type: 'statusCode'
    callback: function(err){
      grunt.log.writeln((!err) ? 'Success!' : err);


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
