Asynchronous Python API for building Telegram bots, featuring:
- Easy and declarative API
- Hassle-free setup – no need for SSL certificates or static IP
- Built-in support for analytics via botan.io
- Automatic handling of Telegram API throttling or timeouts
Install it with pip:
Then you can create a new bot in few lines:
Now run it with a proper API_TOKEN and it should reply to /echo commands.
Type annotations are not required but will help your editor/IDE to provide code completion.
The example above looks like a normal synchronous code but it actually returns a coroutine. If you want to make an external request (and that’s what bots usually do) just use aiohttp and async/await syntax:
But what if you just want to write a quick integration and don’t need to provide a conversational interface? We’ve got you covered! You can send messages (or any other media) by constructing a Chat object with user_id or channel name. We even saved you some extra keystrokes by providing handy Channel constructors:
- Async IO
- Send image
- Post to channel
- Webhooks mode
- Sender id
For a real world example, take a look at WhatisBot or Music Catalog Bot.
