A simple Python wrapper for the archive.is capturing service

Project description

archiveis

A simple Python wrapper for the archive.is capturing service.

PyPI version Build Status Coverage Status

Installation

pipenv install archiveis

Python Usage

Import it.

>>> import archiveis

Capture a URL.

>>> archive_url = archiveis.capture("http://www.example.com/")

See where it's stored.

>>> print archive_url
http://archive.md/WxlRK

If a URL has been recently cached, archive.is may return the URL to that page rather than conduct a new capture.

Command-line usage

The Python library is also installed as a command-line interface. You can run it from your terminal like so:

archiveis http://www.example.com/

The command has the same options as the Python API, which you can learn about from its help output.

$ archiveis --help
Usage: archiveis [OPTIONS] URL

  Archives the provided URL using the archive.is capturing service.

Options:
  -ua, --user-agent TEXT  User-Agent header for the web request
  --help                  Show this message and exit.
