Feature request: Storing of WHatsApp group chats in Miranda DB

Don't know of a better place, so I post it here. I really miss that feature from the early times of the Whatsapp plugin.  :o
Workaround of storing as plain file for me is no option, as I need to have the history my group chats stored encrypted and searchable

You will need to convince someone from tabsrmm or similar. It is very good, that whatsapp now uses group chat (invite users, leave groups etc.) but tabsrmm etc only support storing group messages in plain text. So nothing whatsapp plugin can do against that.

OK, thanks and I accept the decision. Just trying to understand what in the "Miranda way" prevents this ?
The feature (even if not intended) was available before and I loved it having...

  • my messages been stored in encrypted format
  • my messages been stored in the same place like all other conversations
  • my messages been searchable through History++ plugin

1 - group chats are handled by chat modules and not by srmm as private messages.
2 - chat modules can not yet (and maybe never will) store messages in database (cause database will grow in size enormously for IRC or XMPP chats).

hasselh, group chats are designed to have history logged into .txt format. Changing it would require changing all chat related plugins.

It was this way because for chats was used mostly IRC/Jabber where are many users (20, 50, 100...) and many events and all that would bloat your profile very easily and quickly - even that .txt file could grow few MB per day depending on how much how active chats you have. And having that much data in a single file together with contacts and settings doesn't sounds good.

However, with WhatsApp, Facebook, VK and similar networks, where are multi user chats with much smaller amount of people, and all messages are really related to you (not like in public irc/jabber chats) it makes sense to save them into profile.

I'd like to see improvements in Miranda regarding this multi user conversations to behave more like private conversations and not like public irc/jabber chats. It will require much work across core and chat plugins. So probably ghazan have to say something about this.
I was developing mainly Facebook, Omegle, Steam, Dummy and MobileState plugins. Now I'm retired. Goodbye, everyone. ~ You can still find me on Facebook.

Would it be feasible to store chat logs into a separate DB (one per account, or some other separation)? Then you will get best of both worlds.

I’m noticing that after any user goes online, contact list reports "Last seen on 01/01/1970 01:00:00".

SSince 1 or 2 days I have a strange problem.
Whenever I start Miranda whatsapp protocol icon is "offline", when I try clicking on it and press "online" it trys to connect, but after few seconds it is offline. No error messages are displayed or whatever.

Have noticed it too. Seems like a disruption in the space-time continuum ???
