Create Wayback-Consumable WARC Files from Any Webpage

WARCreate is a Google Chrome extension that allows a user to create a Web ARChive (WARC) file from any browsable webpage. The resulting files can then be used with other tools like the Internet Archive's open source Wayback Machine. The tool is an evolving product with the end result pushing toward being a personal web archiving solution for those that wish to securely archive their metadata in a standardize way. RECENT VERSION HISTORY Version 0.2021.6.28 Fixes an issue to capture URIs without relative indicators.

Too inconsistent to be trusted. For instance, it hangs when trying to WARC this storefront page. It's very opaque, with no way to check status - you click "generate" and it doesn't do anything, either because it's actually generating a WARC or because it's crashed or hung on something, and there's just no telling which possibility is the case. On the bright side, it's not a CLI python script, so... points for that.

Hi Zappa, I appreciate the feedback. Parts of the extension have broken somewhat over time due to the changing Chrome APIs but I agree that the extension should be more transparent with regard to status and where the process potentially broke. I will work to incorporate this suggestion into future versions of the extension. Thanks!
