|Wallhaven (Alpha Phase)|
|Archiving status||In progress...|
|IRC channel||(on EFnet)|
wallhaven.cc is a store of wallpapers and other high-resolution media typically scraped from chans' /hr, /wg, and /w boards.
It seems to be a replacement for wallbase.cc project.
It is in alpha phase now. Content uploaded to alpha.wallhaven.cc will likely be deleted after that phase is over.
The notice on the page reads:
Alpha Notice: We are expecting to start fresh at the end of the alpha phase. The alpha is only intended as a sneak peak and a quick and dirty bug test.
We should archive the content on alpha.wallhaven.cc.
Work thus far
Some page analysis.
The structure is very similar to wallbase.cc. Scraping is very easy. Some urls have changed a bit.
- Around 21k wallpapers so far.
- Per day around 2.5k new wallpapers are uploaded.
- Categories: alpha.wallhaven.cc/tags/id
- Tags: alpha.wallhaven.cc/tag/id
- Wallpapers: alpha.wallhaven.cc/wallpaper/id
- Users: alpha.wallhaven.cc/user/id
- Wallpapers: alpha.wallhaven.cc/wallpapers/full/wallhaven-ID(.jpg/.png)
- Tags can have aliases. This seems to be new. It's kinda cool, I think.
- The domain implements rate limiting or the infrastructure is a lot slower compared to the wallbase.cc infrastructure.
