Website status indicator

About the project:

Cheqit (pronounced 'check it') is a simple command line utility for checking the status of a website or IP address.

Cheqit was inspired by downdetector, which is a website of the same functionality as cheqit. I got the idea when one day I went to use downdetector and it itself was down 🙃

Demo

cheqit is a simple command line utility for checking website status. Usage is super simple:

$ python3 cheqit.py google.com amazon.com willcarh.art testy.mctesterson
google.com UP
amazon.com UP
willcarh.art UP
testy.mctesterson DOWN

Works on IP addresses too:

$ python3 cheqit.py 172.217.4.174
172.217.4.174 UP

You can also stream the output, so cheqit will check at a regular interval and update the terminal:

$ python3 cheqit.py --stream google.com
$ p3 cheqit.py -s google.com
google.com: UP (2019-04-15 05:10:55)
