status 0.2.4

Report the HTTP status codes for GET and POST requests

Latest Version: 0.2.5


Status is a 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, 3.2, 3.3 and pypy 2.2.1 (Python v2.7.3)


You can install status from PyPI with 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 install


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>
