Discussion: new name! #108
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 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:
Comment with your name suggestions/ideas!
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.
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:
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.
