OpenWayback is one key software that web archives worldwide use to ‘play back’ archived websites in the user’s browser. IIPC members and a wider web archiving community are working together to support open source versions of Wayback to serve the ever-changing needs of the archiving community and of users.
Below are some key resources for developers working on the project. If you would like to keep in touch with the project more widely, do consider signing up to the Openwayback Development Mailing List.
If your institution uses OpenWayback, please consider:
- updating the OpenWayback-Users page with your institution’s information
- joining the OpenWayback Google Group
- providing comments on OpenWayback’s open issues relevant to your institution.
The OpenWayback development is currently led by Lauren Ko, University of North Texas.
