Analyze and visualize relations between chat users
Version: 0.1Chat Relater is a free and open source tool consisting of two command-line scripts:
Operating System: Mac OS X
· The analyzer extracts user relations from chat logs. The gained data is serialized as YAML.
· The visualizer takes that data and utilizes GraphViz to create a graph.
Chat Relater is actually a conceptual clone of the PieSpy Social Network Bot. However, Chat Relater does not act as an IRC bot (although this could be easily accomplished by making use of the irclib package), but therefore allows to be run on any logfiles that produce similar output to those created by XChat.
Of course, this includes logs from SILC, Jabber, or any other communication (but Chat Relater might require some minor changes to the log reader).
The GraphViz usage is pretty basic and output may be improved somehow, but so far, the graphs created by PieSpy look much nicer.
