What is ArchiveBox?

ArchiveBox is a web-based self-hosted web archiving system that you can use to record and archive online links, web pages, and media pages in a single database.

With ArchiveBox you can have your collection saved, share them or keep them private for your own use.

Moreover, It is an open-source,  easy to setup, install, configure and use. Anyone can install it and start using it directly from their servers.

ArchiveBox comes with a command-line app that works directly from your terminal, a web application that works seamlessly in all modern browsers, and a new released desktop app (in Alpha stage) that works for Windows, Linux, and macOS.
