Python 3.7.1 or higher is required.

To install the library, you can just run the following command:

$ pip install -U qualichat

To install a development version, follow these steps:

$ git clone
$ cd qualichat

# Linux/MacOS
$ python3 -m pip install -U .
# Windows
$ py -3 -m pip install -U .


To use this library, you need a plain chat text file, following this format:

[dd/mm/yy hh:mm:ss] <contact name>: <message>

For example, see this following sample chat file named sample-chat.txt:

[01/01/21 07:52:45] Joel: Hello!
[01/01/21 07:52:47] Mary: Hi!
[01/01/21 07:52:49] Joel: How are you guys?
[01/01/21 07:52:52] Mary: We are fine! 😊
How about you?
[01/01/21 07:52:55] Oliva: Everything's great!
[01/01/21 07:52:59] Joel: Cool! I am also fine!
[01/01/21 07:53:03] John left

In your code, you will just load the chat using qualichat.load_chat().

chat = qualichat.load_chat('sample-chat.txt')
