Trillian/ICQ/MSN Instant Messaging Log Merger by zAlbee

Pidgin Support Coming Soon

January 22, 2012

I started work on the Pidgin plugin for IMmerge. So far, I have been able to convert Pidgin text logs to Trillian successfully.

Here is the completion progress for the various parts:

  • Pidgin Txt Reader: 95%
  • Pidgin Txt Writer: 0%
  • Pidgin HTML Reader: 0%
  • Pidgin HTML Writer: 0%

How you can help:

While parsing is working on my own set of logs, there are certain cases I still don’t know about.¬†You can help by providing me this information:

  1. Folder names for different protocols. So far I know about:
    • “icq”
    • “msn”
    • “jabber” (used for Google Talk as well)
    • “yahoo”
  2. Localization – Does Pidgin always log these strings in English, or does it translate them? If your system is using another language, simply search inside your logs to see if these have been translated or not.
    • <Name> entered the room.
    • <Name> left the room.
    • Offering to send <filename> to <Name>
    • <Name> is offering to send file <filename>
    • Starting transfer of <filename> from <Name>
    • Transfer of file <filename> complete
    • <UserID> is now known as <Name>
  3. Is it possible to customize (or remove) the logging timestamps? If so, in what way?

If you can answer any of these, just leave a comment or send me an email. Thanks!
