Welcome back internet friend,
Tonight I started hacking on an old project on which I’m currently bringing back to life, a chrome extension which saves all of the pages you visit to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. It’s called The Internet Archivist’s Intrepid Extension.
Unfortunately I had to kill off the first version of the extension because cloudflare started blocking all of my traffic. However, I discovered today that Archive.org has an API for submitting links programmatically. So the Intrepid Extension is back!
After an hour or so of hacking I’ve put together a pretty simple prototype and thought maybe I should share the source code here on the blog in case anyone else is stumbling around the internet looking for a solution. Enjoy!
