Who is AreYouOk made for ?

  • OSS Package Maintainers πŸ“¦οΈ :
    With packages comes documentation which needs to be constantly updated & checked for dead/non-functioning URLs.
  • Tech Bloggers ✍️ :
    If you are someone who writes countless tutorials & owns the source for your website, Use areyouok to make sure your blogs don't contain any non-functioning URLs.
  • Literally anyone who wants to check a bunch of URLs for being dead ☠️ or not, SEO experts?

With time AreYouOk can evolve to analyze URLs over a remote resource as well, send your ideas ✨️ through Discussions

Download builds for other architectures from releases


AreYouOk provides 3 optional arguments followed by a directory path (default: current directory)

  1. -t type of files to scan for links
  2. -i list of files or directories to ignore for links (node_modules, .git)
  3. -r type of report to generate

Some example usages:

  • Analyze all HTML files for hyperlinks. The default directory path is set to current directory.

    areyouok -t=html Documents/my-directory

    There is not limitation on file type, to analyze json files use -t=json. The default type is set to md (markdown)

  • To ignore certain directories or file-types use the ignore -i flag.

    areyouok -i=_layouts,.git,_site,README.md,build.py,USAGE.md
  • By default AreYouOk outputs analyzed data directly into console. To generate a report, use the -r flag

    areyouok -i=_layouts,.git,_site,README.md,build.py,USAGE.md -r=html ~/Documents/til/

    Currently supported report formats are: json, txt, html & github.

    Different report types provide different levels of information which is briefly summarized below:

    1. JSON (report.json)
      The JSON report can be used for other computational tasks as required (E.g emailing dead urls to yourself)

         "": {
                 "code": "",
                 "message": "Get \"\": dial tcp connect: connection refused",
                 "response_time": ""
         "http://freecodecamp.org": {
                 "code": "200",
                 "message": "OK",
                 "response_time": "5.44s"
         "http://ogp.me/": {
                 "code": "200",
                 "message": "OK",
                 "response_time": "3.60s"
         "http://prnbs.github.io/projects/regular-expression-parser/": {
                 "code": "200",
                 "message": "OK",
                 "response_time": "0.25s"
         "https://bhupeshv.me/30-Seconds-of-C++/": {
                 "code": "404",
                 "message": "Not Found",
                 "response_time": "3.84s"
    2. Text (report.txt)
      The text format just lists the URLs which were not successfully fetched. Useful if you just want dead urls. Text report also puts the no.of hyperlinks analyzed along with total files & total reponse time.

      74 URLs were analyzed across 31 files in 21.69s
      Following URLs are not OK:

      Note that the total time would vary according to your internet speed & website latency.

    3. HTML (report.html)
      The html report is the most superior formats of all & can be used to have a visual representaion of analyzed links.
      Below is demo of how this HTML report looks like, you can see it live report-latest

    4. GitHub (report.github)
      The github report format is well suited if you are utilizing Github Actions. The format generated is largely HTML, compatible with github's commonmark markdown renderer.
      Below is a demo of a Github Action which reports the analyzed URLs through github issues. Here is a demo link




  1. Clone the repository.
    git https://github.com/Bhupesh-V/areyouok.git
  2. Run tests.
    go test -v
  3. Format & Lint the project.
    gofmt -w areyouok.go && golint areyouok.go

    To Reproduce Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Create an example README.md file with the a link to a LinkedIn profile.
    2. Run areyouok against the newly created README.md file (which contains the LinkedIn URL).
    3. Check the generated report for a 999 Error Status Code.

    Expected behavior areyouok should've returned a 200 OK Status Code.

    support for line numbers in github & html report format

    Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. Right now the links appear in list of tables for the GitHub report format. It would be nice if we can link to the exact line number where the link exists.

    Describe the solution you'd like A new parser kinda thing will be required to find the line numbers of exact regexp matches. Its an interesting and fun problem to solve
