Quassel Logging

Quassel saves all logs into the database, it never forgets backlogs unless you delete a buffer. You can either scroll back in chat windows as far as you like, or you can use a tool to dump or view the logs in plaintext format.



this tool (written in Python) dumps quassel logs to a file. Currently it exports mIRC format.
You can get it at

it is rather self-explanatory, telling you if something went wrong. you can run it with

default database path (ok for most unixes)

python -u username -n network -c "#channel" -o channel.log

custom database path (Windows etc.)

python -d "C:\Quassel/quassel-storage.sqlite"


show users in quasseldb


show networks for quassel user john

python -u john

show channels for network Freenode for user john

python -u john -n Freenode

dump channel #quassel on network Freenode for user john to file quassel.log

python -u john -n Freenode -c "#quassel" -o quassel.log

this tool is not maintained by quassel staff, contact Gentle on Freenode for bugs or feature requests
