Fimfarchive


Third-party archival project, do not contact Fimfiction staff for support.

Fimfarchive

Fimfarchive is a project which aims to release all stories available on Fimfiction, together with their metadata, as a single archive. The archive is organized by author and could be used for backup, offline reading, or data mining.

A new version will be released each season via BitTorrent, approximately once every three months. When suitable, an xdelta3 patch will also be provided for users who do not wish to redownload unchanged stories.

Note that the archive contains a large number of files. Unzipping it to your file system may not be necessary if the archive is to be used together with some application. If you are a developer, reading directly from the ZIP-file may be preferable.

Trying to archive everything pony

Thank You! Deleted stories are kept. :twilightsmile:

Hello! Awesome project. I just had one question: Does the archive include stories that have been deleted? Or is each archive release a snapshot of fimfiction's library as it existed at that time?
Thanks for the response!

You're welcome! I'm glad to see you've found your way here! :twilightsmile:

Just found out about this wonderful project and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work.

You're doing some fantastic work here. Here's to ya.

Yes, but not all of them.

Does this archive include deleted fics as well?

2605856

Sorry, I don't have the time to spare for that at the moment.

You can convert stories from EPUB to HTML using a program like Calibre.

can you give me a link to download this archive in html format? i prefer that format

2605577

Hard to say. I sent a list of possible matches.

if there is old stuff then can you find me this one fic,i forget the name' that has sombra and this old lich iron thing that has an iron dragon? the details are foggy its been awhile since i read it and it was taken down by author

If you're looking for an older version of a story I can dig it out for you.

An now I have to ad, I am sadly disappointed by this because the story I really wanted to be on their (Colors of the Heart) is not, and instead I could only find one which was basically a highlights bit....guess I will just have to live with the version of the story that I have...very depressed.:pinkiesad2:

I have to say, it was weird finding some of my old stuff on here, but it’s really cool at the same time.

I am not, but I do plan to.

While important, it doesn't feel as urgent anymore since story images are rehosted by Derpibooru.

2533945
That's a bit dissapointing. I do hope you are atleast archiving the images even if you aren't releasing them because that would be pretty devastating if the site went down...

Also you are very awesome for doing this.

2533537

It does not at the moment, mostly due to space concerns. :applejackunsure:

does this come with images? just want to know because I might download this in the future.
