I would like a plugin written for the Pidgin IM project: [url removed, login to view]
This plugin will be a "secret logger." It's intended use is to monitor employees' use of IM. I know Pidgin has logging functionality built in, but it can easily be disabled in the preferences. I'm looking for a plugin that is isn't so obvious and easy to disable. It will log IMs to a file on the local filesystem.
This is for Pidgin for Windows, version 2.7.11.
I would like it to have the same functionality as Pidgin's built-in logger, including plaintext logging of all IMs and chats, timestamps, and log rotation for each conversation. I would also like it to have a configurable path to save logs.
I don't know how to program, but I would prefer to have the source code for the plugin available for my records. The end result though must be a compiled plugin for windows.
