Thank you, now (using the workaround below) it works 😊

mercury-parser is now removed, apparently postlight-parser replaces it. Also, an issue with verifying signatures:

Since archivebox now installs some dependencies (primarily an older django version) in /opt, users will need to update their PYTHONPATH variable to avoid ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'archivebox' errors.

A quick workaround is to export the variable as such:

export PYTHONPATH=/opt/archivebox/lib/python3.11/site-packages/
archivebox init

According to python's documentation (and some StackOverflow answers), it might also be possible to put a .pth file referring to the /opt directory in python's default site-packages directory. This doesn't seem particularity harmful, but might cause breakages if a a newer of Django is also installed and intended to be used.

@carsme maybe the PKGBUILD could print a warning with recommendations/suggestions of this sort? Two other solutions include:

  1. Making bin/archivebox a wrapper script that calls the actual archivebox program with PYTHONPATH=/opt/archivebox/lib/python3.11/site-packages/ prepended. Downside is that this will unexpectly fail to work when archivebox is imported as a library from python. In fact, making a wrapper more or less hides the problem from the user.

  2. Installing a .pth file, as outlined above. Downside is that this might cause breakages with system packages (e.g. Django 3.2+), which AUR packages should avoid at all costs.

  3. Write a python-django-3.1 package. This actually seems preferable, but more work.

Thanks to carsme for stepping up as a maintainer, btw!

I'm going to disown this package since I'm no longer use it, playing with Linkwarden instead.

For anyone who want to own this package, I'm already written a new PKGBUILD[1] for v0.7.1

Something you need to know, the author shows no interested[2] in fixing the issue with the new version of Django, so it is not working at all without writing another python-django-3.1.x package

Please fix the dependencies
python-crontab-crontab should be python-python-crontab

yochananmarqos commented on 2023-03-03 22:38 (UTC)

Please depend on python-python-crontab instead of python-crontab. See [PRQ#40465] Merge Request for python-crontab

does the PKGBUILD need to be updated to have the readability-extractor-git version instead?

-> Could not find all required packages:
    readability-extractor (Wanted by: archivebox)

@snakestorm Sorry this package doesn't work anymore at this time, since archivebox doesn't work with Django 3.2.x. See

I seem to get some errors when i run "archivebox init", here is a pastebin link: nothing is created in my empty directory that I created.

@AI5C I think ArchiveBox doesn't support Django 3.2 according to Seems nothing I can do about it.
