Skyperious is a Skype database viewer and merger, written in Python.You can open local Skype SQLite databases and look at their contents:
Additionally, Skyperious doubles as a useful database browser for any SQLite file.
Making a backup of the database file is recommended before doing any changes like merging.
Skyperious can look through user directories and detect Skype databases automatically, or you can select specific files or folders. Once added to the database list, a file can be opened for browsing, searching and exporting, or compared with another database for merging.
Searching an opened database supports a simple Google-like query syntax. You can use keywords to search among specific authors or chats only, or from certain dates only. Search supports wildcards, exact phrases, grouping, excluding, and either-or queries.
In database comparison, two databases can be scanned for differences, and you can merge results from one to the other wholesale, or browse and copy specific chats and contacts.
Skyperious has been tested under Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux, and reported to work under OS X. In source code form, it should run wherever Python and required Python packages are installed.
