telegrust-histo

Why? I was curious, and Python proved too slow1 at parsing timestamps, although the plot looks nicer there.

Install:

# install telegrust-histo with cargo, 
# provided that you have the rust toolchain set up.
cargo install telegrust-histo

Usage:

# cd to wherever your exported folder is
cd ~/Downloads/Telegram\ Desktop/ChatExport_2021-01-15 

# print options
telegrust-histo -help

# run it
telegrust-histo -b 300 -v

Demo:

~/ChatExport_2021-01-15> time telegrust-histo -b 200  # time is optional btw of course
