What is PYCS?
PYCS is a very small (and fast!) IRC statistics generator written in Python. It takes your IRC log files, processes them for a short while, and outputs a nice HTML page that you can easily share on your web server, or just have a look at locally. Have an example!

Mouseover for details
How do I use it?There are quite a few documents that will aid you in using (and adding to) PYCS. The most useful one is the readme that is shipped with PYCS, which you can read on GitHub too.
Besides all of the functionality in creating chat statistics, you can help create, too! If you happen to have an IRC log format that is not yet supported by PYCS, it is incredibly easy to create your own! Refer to the readme for details. For the more artistically inclined, it is not only possible, but not even all that hard to create your own themes for PYCS. Again, refer to the readme for details.
