Sitemap testing with doublecheck

I hate releasing a new version of a site and finding out a few days later that I broke some of the pages. So I wrote the Doublecheck gem to help with post release testing.

Doublecheck

Doublecheck pulls a sitemap file and checks each URL listed, outputing a list of URL's for each HTTP status code that is encountered.

Installation

$ gem install doublecheck

Usage

$ doublecheck http://example.com/sitemap.xml

Notes

Get the code: github.com/nathanhumbert/doublecheck

Doublecheck is pretty simple at this point, it does one request at a time, so large sites may take a substantial amount of time to process.

Google's webmaster tools will eventually let you know if one of your pages has a problem, but it isn't a particularly fast way to find issues on your site.
