[edit] Description

Warc-proxy can be used to view the sites contained in a WARC file with Mozilla Firefox. Warc-proxy consists of two parts:

  • A python script, which sets up a simple server.
  • A Firefox add-on which interacts with the python server and lets you navigate the archive structure

[edit] Issues

Because the last changes to this tool were comitted 2013, the Firefox add-on is not signed for use with curent Firefox versions. The tool therefore can not be used with Firefox 48 or newer, since the option to disable signature enforcement was discontinueed. This issue can be solved by using the Firefox Nightly build.


[edit] User Experiences

  • User JFS: Warc-proxy is relatively easy to install and use. It displayed all the sites in our sample perfectly.
