Python Simple 404 Checker

I hate wasting time doing the same thing over and over and over again*.

So I wrote this little python tool to check for a 404 Header Response for a made-up URL on a domain to save me from the drudgery of doing it by hand, to give me absolute consistency of checking, and to give me an audit trail of URLs checked and responses.

*unless it’s perfectly acceptable time-wasting like watching cat videos, obviously.

A Python Script To Check Canonical Domain Redirects

So, I got really bored and frustrated checking a bunch of domains for a client to see if their domains 301 redirected all variants from http to https and from non-www to www. There are only so many times you can type:

curl -I

Using my limited knowledge of Python, I crafted this simple little script to do the leg work for me and report back its findings in a readable format which can be slapped straight into an email that even devs can understand (j/k).
