Run your own full stack SolrWayback

Thomas Egense & Toke Eskildsen

The Royal Danish Library


This workshop will

  1. Explain the ecosystem for SolrWayback 4 (https://github.com/netarchivesuite/solrwayback)
  2. Perform a walkthrough of installing and running the SolrWayback bundle. Participants are invited to mirror the process on their own computer and there will be time for solving installation problems
  3. Leave participants with a fully working stack for index, discovery and playback of WARC files
  4. End with open discussion of SolrWayback configuration and features.


Target audience:

Researchers with medium knowledge of web archiving and tools for exploring web archives. Basic technical knowledge of starting a program from the command line is required; the SolrWayback bundle is designed for easy deployment.


SolrWayback 4 (https://github.com/netarchivesuite/solrwayback) is a major rewrite with a strong focus on improving usability. It provides real time full text search, discovery, statistics extraction & visualisation, data export and playback of webarchive material. SolrWayback uses Solr (https://solr.apache.org/) as the underlying search engine. The index is populated using Web Archive Discovery (https://github.com/ukwa/webarchive-discovery). The full stack is open source and freely available. A live demo is available at http://webadmin.oszk.hu/solrwayback/

During the conference there will be focused support for SolrWayback in a dedicated Slack channel by Thomas Egense and Toke Eskildsen.

The event is finished.
