      This looks quite cool: might see if I can use Discord’s automated GDPR data dump to make something like this.

      EDIT: I’ve done it!

        This is such a good visualization. I wish I could dump my work chat and make a chart similar, but alas it’s Slack ;_;

            I’m not a Slack user, but I think writing a smiple bot could be helpful, could it not? I haven’t checked their API though.

            I was just going to write, I’d like to see Slack or Discourse or Reddit do something like this…

                I used her gist and did my own weechat logs. As a result, here’s a little repo with a requirement.txt and info on how to easily do your own. Really the python just reads a file of date/time stamps, one-per-line. If you can transform your source data into that then this will Just Work™
