Hey everyone! I have a big refactor in the works with some breaking changes, and I thought I'd take this opportunity to re-release BA with a better name and a 1.0 version.
The new release modularizes BA into a python package, which lets people import individual parts for their own uses (e.g. parsers, link archiving, screenshotting, indexing). It fixes a lot of the bad decisions I made early on (e.g. using timestamps as unique keys instead of sha256 hashes of the URLs). It also adds a backend with a web GUI for searching and adding imports.

The new name should be easy to find and type in a python packaging context and should be related to web archiving somehow.

Requirements for a new name:

  • one word
  • no symbols or spaces (since it's going to be imported as a python package like from webfreeze.pocket import parse_links
  • should be 1st in google results when released with a new name (i.e. no competing projects/keywords)
  • should be intuitively related to web archiving

Potential ideas:

  • WebFreeze
  • Freezekit
  • ArchiveKit
  • WebCooler

Comment with your name suggestions/ideas!

I like WebFreeze the most from your list.
Some random ideas (did not checked on google):

  • HTTPFridge (Can be a cool (phun intended) logo with a refridgerator)
  • WebFridge

I like short simple words like memex, though that word has too much history and too many other projects to be a good choice. If memex was supposed to be a portmanteau of memory and index, maybe we could take a similar approach and try something like memarc (memory and archive), or arcex (archive and index). None of those quite have the same ring to them, but there may be something down that road.

I also like aaarchive, but I suspect that things like Google will always interpret that as a typo and assume you meant archive.

I don't know if you want to keep the reference to bookmarks, but if you do I'd suggest FreezeMark.

Haha @pigmonkey it's funny that you suggest that name, "memex" is used by a friend of mine for his project @hyfen https://hyfen.net/

My favorite candidates so far are:

  • Aaarchive
  • WebFridge
  • WebFreeze

How about ArchiveBox as suggested by @FiloSottile? I like it because "box" implies it lives locally on your computer, and it's an intuitive CLI and package name too. Also the only competition on google is from physical cardboard boxes on Amazon used for archiving documents.

cd ~/pirates-archive
pip install archivebox
archivebox init
archivebox add https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beans
archivebox crawl --depth=2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lists_of_lists
archivebox publish --html /var/www
archivebox server --bind 127.0.0.1:8083
from archivebox.crawl import rss
from archivebox.extract import media

links = crawl_rss(open('feed.rss', 'r').read())
assets = media.extract('https://youtube.com/watch?v=example')

Desktop/mobile/browser extension app name: ArchiveBox.app / ArchiveBox.exe

As much as I love aaarchive, I don't think it's a practical choice given an aaarchive group already exists on github and it's a bit hard to say in a way that's easy for people to google later.

I’ll happily install archivebox, and if anyone really wants to use aaarchive you can always create a shell alias. 😉

ArchiveBox is IMHO a little too abstract.

ArcBox also looks good.
ArkBox?
ArqBox?

But I think the current name is pretty good, but if you want a new name why not something pirate themed, like:

Stash
WebStash

Maybe something to do with x marking the spot? Or buried treasure? You sail the seas of the web, collecting gems of content and then you save that in your treasure chest, buried safe and sound on a hard drive you control. Something you can always come back to and find.
