remwharead saves URIs of things you want to remember in a database along with an URI to the archived version, the current date and time, title, description, the full text of the page and optional tags.

The database can be filtered by time, tags and full text and exported to CSV, AsciiDoc, JSON or RSS.

Archiving is done using the Wayback machine from the Internet Archive.

Example 1. AsciiDoc export formatted with Asciidoctor.
