Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

ArchiveBox Desktop (alpha, help wanted!)

Electron desktop app concept for ArchiveBox.

We're looking for contributors to help make our dekstop app experience better!

Reach out on Twitter or open an issue if you're interested in helping.


The desktop app depends on Docker already being installed and running on your system. This is a hard dependency as the Desktop app is just a wrapper around the Docker container (for now). (Cross-platform packaging of Python + JS + Chrome + wget + curl and more without Docker is a hard problem)

Yes, it's an Electron app, yes, I'm sorry. Electron is just so easy compared to the alternatives, and I don't have the time to do full native development.

# Clone this repository
git clone && cd electron-archivebox

# Install dependencies
npm install

# Run the app
npm start

Note: If you're using Linux Bash for Windows, see this guide or use node from the command prompt.
