A simple Python wrapper for the webcitation.org capturing service.
$ pip install webcitation
>>> import webcitation
Capture a URL.
>>> archive_url = webcitation.capture("http://www.example.com/")
See where it's stored.
>>> print archive_url http://www.webcitation.org/6lSLkrUdV

$ webcitation http://www.example.com/
The command has the same options as the Python API, which you can learn about from its help output.
