Terminal Tip – How To View Html Code Of A Website From The Terminal

Hi unixmen geeks,

I like terminal tips, what about you guys? In this tutorial I will teach you how to use the get command-line utility to view html code of a website from your geeky terminal. The good thing is that you don’t need to install anything in order to accomplish what we are trying to do in this tutorial.

We will use the get utility to send a request to a www server and  get the content of the response  printed on  stdout. If there is any error they will be printed on stderr.

1. Open a new terminal (CTRL+ALT+T in Ubuntu)

2.  Run the following command.

GET unixmen.com

What do you see?

Note: You can replace unixmen.com with the name of  the website you want to view html code.
