Facebook Message Export Parser
Facebook has a feature that allows users to download a copy of their data as a zip archive containing htm files with their data. The aim of this parser is to take this archive and to extract a user's Facebook Messages from it; to transfer them into a more useful format, as well as performing some analysis to produce interesting data.
Running the Code
The Facebook Export can be downloaded from the Facebook Settings menu.
Run "python fb_parser.py" with the 'messages.htm' file in the same directory to export to JSON as proof of concept.
The code is written in Python 3+. The parser uses BeautifulSoup to do the bulk of the capture from the htm file.
