Skype database viewer and merger

Skyperious is a Skype database viewer and merger, written in Python.

You can open local Skype SQLite databases and look at their contents:

  • search across all messages and contacts
  • browse chat history and export as HTML, see chat statistics
  • import contacts from a CSV file to your Skype contacts
  • view any database table and and export their data
  • change, add or delete data in any table
  • execute direct SQL queries


  • synchronize messages in two Skype databases: keep chat history up-to-date on different computers, or restore missing messages from older files into the current one

Additionally, Skyperious doubles as a useful database browser for any SQLite file.
Also, a command line interface is available with key functions like exporting, searching, and merging.

Making a backup of the database file is recommended before doing any changes like merging.
