Golang : Intercept and compare HTTP response code example




Problem :

You want to query a website and intercept the response code. You also want to compare the response code to a built in HTTP response codes in net/http package. How to do that?

Solution :

Use the http.Head() function to query a website. The return codes can be compared with the == operator.

For example :

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "net/http"
 "os"
 )

 func main() {
 url := "https://www.socketloop.com"

 response, err := http.Head(url)

 if err != nil {
 fmt.Println(err)
 os.Exit(1)
 }

 if response.StatusCode != http.StatusOK { // <------- here !
 fmt.Printf("%s returns non-200 status code. \n", url)
 fmt.Printf("The reply : %v \n", response.StatusCode)
 } else {
 fmt.Println(response)
 }
 }

Happy coding!
