Warclight is a Project Blacklight based Rails engine that supports the discovery of web archives held in the WARC and ARC formats. It allows faceted full-text search, record view, and other advanced discovery options. Warclight is designed to work with web archive data indexed via the UK Web Archive’s webarchive-discovery project. This project grew out of the WALK Project.
