TIL Turn off the Wayback Machine Archive Method in archivebox
I ❤️ ArchiveBox. It's an open source self-hosted Web archiving solution. I use it for managing my 🔖 bookmarks, a task that I care a lot about.
One thing I dislike about
archivebox is that the Archive Method for
archive.org is on by default. I maintain a few different
archivebox setups for different purposes. For some of them, I don't want to add the sites to the Wayback Machine. (It's great but not for everything.)
archivebox CLI makes this fairly easy with
archivebox config --set SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG=false.
archivebox config --set SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG=false [i] [2023-09-26 00:23:34] ArchiveBox v0.6.2: archivebox config --set SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG=false > /Users/brie/box SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG=False (v) ➜ box archivebox config --get SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG [i] [2023-09-26 00:23:40] ArchiveBox v0.6.2: archivebox config --get SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG > /Users/brie/box SAVE_ARCHIVE_DOT_ORG=False
