An open-source archive that gathers, saves, shares and analyzes news homepages
The archive at homepages.news is an open-source software project managed by Ben Welsh. Each day it gathers screenshots, accessibility trees, hyperlink lists, robots.txt and Lighthouse audits from hundreds of news homepages around the world. It also ensures that all sites are routinely saved by the Wayback Machine at archive.org.
The system supports the creation of bots to post a newsroom’s latest screenshots into a private Slack channel. The tool is used by organizations in the U.S. and abroad to save and share images each day.
