HTTP Status Code and Exceptions

Note: After 0.8 version the webdriver (firefox, chrome) based drivers does not support http error handling.

Dealing with HTTP status code

It’s also possible to check which HTTP status code a browser.visit gets. You can use status_code.is_success to do the work for you or you can compare the status code directly:

browser.status_code.is_success() # True
# or
browser.status_code == 200 # True
# or
browser.status_code.code # 200

The difference between those methods is that if you get a redirect (or something that is not an HTTP error), status_code.is_success will consider your response as successfully. The numeric status code can be accessed via status_code.code.
