Overview

The goal of this project is to extend the existing logging subsystem of libpurple. This extension allows you to safely store your logs on different types of repositories and synchronize your logs with remote ones. With this extension you don't need to copy valuable information from your computer to external devices any more. You can forget about mailing your own logs to your own mailbox to have access to them from some other place. With this extension you can stop worrying about the hardware failures - because whatever happens with your computer, your logs will be safe.

Tasks

  • Extending existing logging system to allow using different type of remote storing plug-ins.
  • Writing Gmail plug-in, which would allow you to store your Pidgin logs in the Gmail inbox. This plug-in has higher priority than other plug-ins (for example ftp plug-in), because it is very easy to obtain a Gmail account (and many of us already have one) for each user. Gmail allows storing lots of small files and we can get access to them anytime, anywhere.
  • Adding functionality which allows you to encrypt all logs.

Optional features (which maybe not be implemented during the summer)

  • Ftp plug-in.
  • Database plug-in (e.g. MySQL plug-in)
  • External tool which allow simple manage your remote repository. (e.g. “Gmail log manager” or “FTP log manager”)
