How to upload stuff to Internet Archive

To upload stuff to Internet Archive you can use the web interface, but in this tutorial we will learn to use the GNU/Linux console and the internetarchive Python module. You need a Linux distro, Python, pip and an account in Internet Archive.

Configuration:

  • sudo apt-get install python
  • sudo easy_install pip
  • sudo pip install internetarchive
  • ia configure

Funny stuff. In this example we will backup GeoNames project:

Result:

  • uploading AD.zip: [################################] 1/1 - 00:00:00
  • uploading AE.zip: [################################] 1/1 - 00:00:00
  • uploading AF.zip: [################################] 5/5 - 00:00:00
  • etc...

See GeoNames-20151022. When the upload finishes, you can improve the metadata using the web interface. Or add the metadata in the upload process with --metadata="title:foo" --metadata="blah:arg"
