“Teen” is a platform-agnostic tool for HTTP status codes. It is written in python and inspired by Unix’s
teen pages are like
man pages but for HTTP status codes. Most web developers spend considerable time looking at response codes (usually errors) and then Googling what they mean. But with
teen, you can simply run
$ teen [status_code] and get a quick explanation of your HTTP response – without leaving the terminal.
Teen works on MacOS, Linux, and Windows (if you use Cygwin), with compiled binaries available for every release. You can also install it with pip:
$ pip install teen
Requires Python 3.0 or higher.
Developer Jonathan Shobrook wrote the project in just a matter of a day. He has plans to further improve the project by adding more features, including manual pages for request headers. Since this is an Open Source project, anyone can contribute to the codebase by forking the Github repository.
