Here’s that CGI application I’ve been working on; a work-in-progress, basic HTML frontend to the Wayback Machine, for browsing the old web straight from an old browser, including the Wayback Machine’s site search 💻🌐📅 http://wayback-classic.nfshost.com
now that this respectfully caches data from the Wayback Machine, I’ve given it its own domain; say hello to https://wayback-classic.net
newly added to https://wayback-classic.net: site maps! 🗺📍
follow a URL with an asterisk to get an index of URLs the Wayback Machine has which match, then filter further via URL and MIME type matches, no JS required
it’s also had a bit of a lick of paint (serif fonts [where available], and a background tweaked for improved contrast), and gained a help page https://wayback-classic.net/search-help.html
@ticky This is all so amazing! Can I make a UX suggestion?
