WhatsR: Parsing, Anonymizing and Visualizing Exported 'WhatsApp' Chat Logs

Imports 'WhatsApp' chat logs and parses them into a usable dataframe object. The parser works on chats exported from Android or iOS phones and on Linux, MacOS and Windows. The parser has multiple options for extracting smilies and emojis from the messages, extracting urls and domains from the messages, extracting names and types of sent media files from the messages, extracting timestamps from messages, extracting and anonymizing author names from messages. Can be used to create anonymized versions of data.
