Warcworker

A dockerized queued high fidelity web archiver based on Squidwarc (Chrome headless), RabbitMQ and a small web frontend. Using the scripting abilities of Squidwarc, you can add scripts that should be run for a specific job (e.g. src-set enrichment, comment expansion etc). Please note that Warcworker is not a crawler (it will not crawl a website automatically - you have to use other software to build lists of URL:s to send to Warcworker).

Installation

Copy .env_example to .env. Update information in .env.

Start with docker-compose up -d --scale worker=3 (wait a minute for everything to start up)

Archiving and playback

Open web front end at http://0.0.0.0:5555 to enter URLs for archiving. You can prefill the text fields with the url and description request parameters. Play back the resulting WARC-files with Webrecorder Player

Using

Bookmarklet

Add a bookmarklet to your browser with the following link:

javascript:window.open('http://0.0.0.0:5555?url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href) + '&description=' + encodeURIComponent(document.title));window.focus();

Now you have two-click web archiving from your browser.

Command line

To use from the command line with curl:

curl -d "scripts=srcset&scripts=scroll_everything&url=https://www.peterkrantz.com/" -X POST http://0.0.0.0:5555/process/

Archivenow handler

To use from archivenow add a handler file handlers/ww_handler.py like this:

import requests
import json

class WW_handler(object):

    def __init__(self):
        self.enabled = True
        self.name = 'Warcworker'
        self.api_required = False

    def push(self, uri_org, p_args=[]):
        msg = ''
        try:
	    # add scripts in the order you want them to be run on the page
            payload = {"url":uri_org, "scripts":["scroll_everything", "srcset"]}

            r = requests.post('http://0.0.0.0:5555/process/', timeout=120,
                    data=payload,
                    allow_redirects=True)

            r.raise_for_status()
            return "%s added to queue" % uri_org

        except Exception as e:
            msg = "Error (" + self.name+ "): " + str(e)
        return msg
