Documentation

Implementation

It reads the log line by line and tries to match it with WhatsApp grammar.

Options

input

Exported WhatsApp log.

profile-name

Your WhatsApp profile name. This is required to get stats for Left and Deleted column.

no-of-spoken

This sets the number of Most Spoken columns to be printed for each user. The default is 3.

Caveats

Words count can be less than the actual count. If the message contains new lines then they have them in the log too. We read the log line by line, so it'll miss parts of messages with newline in them.
