A simple Python wrapper for the archive.is capturing service.
$ pip install archiveis
>>> import archiveis
Capture a URL.
>>> archive_url = archiveis.capture("http://www.example.com/")
See where it's stored.
>>> print archive_url http://archive.fo/WxlRK
If a URL has been recently cached, archive.is may return the URL to that page rather than conduct a new capture.
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.
