This package can be installed via Composer:
composer global require spatie/http-status-check
This tool will scan all links on a given website:
http-status-check scan https://example.com
It outputs a line per link found:
When the crawling process is finished a summary will be shown.
By default the crawler uses 10 concurrent connections to speed up the crawling process. You can change that number by passing a different value to the
http-status-check scan https://example.com --concurrency=20
You can also write all urls that gave a non-2xx or non-3xx response to a file:
http-status-check scan https://example.com --output=log.txt
When the crawler finds a link to an external website it will by default crawl that link as well. If you don't want the crawler to crawl such external urls use the
http-status-check scan https://example.com --dont-crawl-external-links
By default, requests timeout after 10 seconds. You can change this by passing the number of seconds to the
http-status-check scan https://example.com --timeout=30
By default, the crawler will respect robots data. You can ignore them though with the
http-status-check scan https://example.com --ignore-robots
To run the tests, first make sure you have Node.js installed. Then start the included node based server in a separate terminal window:
