irc-log-viewer Build Status

This is a viewer for IRC logs which are stored in a CouchDB. It's basically a couchapp using Ember.js. Demo? Here you go: (transcript of #emberjs channel)

Awesome stuff used

Stored IRC messages

The IRC messages saved in the CouchDB have the following format:

   "user": {
       "id": "123",
       "name": "GOB"
   "text": "Come on!",
   "date": "2012-12-21T12:34:56.789Z"

One example of filling the CouchDB with the IRC messages would be a Hubot configured with the script and using an IRC Adapter

CouchDB Views

The messages view returns all messages, where the key is the date structured as an array with the year as first element, month as second and so forth. This allows you to get messages for a specific period.
