How to stop redirects when attempting to access UOW Malaysia KDU snapshots

TL;DR: replace http with https, such that e.g. becomes


Since I've just recently enrolled myself into a diploma programme for UOW Malaysia KDU (hereby referred to as KDU for the rest of the document), and since I'm living outside the campus, I need to rely on the university shuttle to go back and forth.

Out of curiosity, I decided to look at the historical snapshots of the transportation webpage on Wayback Machine, but all of the snapshots redirected me back to the original URL rendering me unable to access them at all, so I opened up the web developer tools > debugger to run the webpage step-by-step to see which script caused it.

I ended up finding out this:

Python 3 script that converts Youtube playlists through youtube-dl into format-agnostic VLC-compatible .m3u8 playlist file in the order of the source playlist
# Requires youtube-dl option `--write-info-json` to work
# For this to work, you need to put this script into the directory (folder) of the videos and JSON files
import os
import json
# Separate JSON metadata files and media files
for path, dirname, filenames in os.walk(os.getcwd()):
json_filenames = [name for name in filenames if name.endswith('.info.json')]
media_filenames = [name for name in filenames if not name.endswith('.info.json')]

DotDict is a variation of the classic "Bunch" recipe - just a dictionary, with all the normal dictionary methods, but the attributes are accessible by dot notation. Use this when you just really want to turn some dictionaries (i.e. from JSON) into something like JavaScript objects. Achieved with very little code. See bottom of docstring for Stac…
class DotDict(dict):
""" A dictionary whose attributes are accessible by dot notation.
This is a variation on the classic `Bunch` recipe (which is more limited
and doesn't give you all of dict's methods). It is just like a dictionary,
but its attributes are accessible by dot notation in addition to regular
`dict['attribute']` notation. It also has all of dict's methods.

Ctrl + F to search for Pokemon's name and corresponding key | Don't ask me why it's off center
TIP: If you want to find the exact Pokedex number, surround one space between the number in Ctrl+F, e.g. " 1 " gives you exactly 1 result.
