Hello! This is a set of libraries for working with Telegram Bot API.

Examples

There are several things you need to do to launch examples below:

  • Add mavenCentral() to your project repositories
  • Add dependency implementation "dev.inmo:tgbotapi:$tgbotapi_version"
    • Replace tgbotapi_version with exact version (see last one in the table above) or put variable with this name in project
    • Alternative variant for maven here

More including instructions available here. Other configuration examples:

Most common example

suspend fun main() {
  val bot = telegramBot(TOKEN)

  bot.buildBehaviourWithLongPolling {
    println(getMe())

    onCommand("start") {
      reply(it, "Hi:)")
    }
  }.join()
}

In this example you will see information about this bot at the moment of starting and answer with Hi:) every time it gets message /start

Handling only last messages

suspend fun main() {
  val bot = telegramBot(TOKEN)

  val flowsUpdatesFilter = FlowsUpdatesFilter()
  bot.buildBehaviour(flowUpdatesFilter = flowsUpdatesFilter) {
    println(getMe())

    onCommand("start") {
      reply(it, "Hi:)")
    }

    retrieveAccumulatedUpdates(this).join()
  }
}

The main difference with the previous example is that bot will get only last updates (accumulated before bot launch and maybe some updates it got after launch)

Build a little bit more complex behaviour

suspend fun main() {
  val bot = telegramBot(TOKEN)

  bot.buildBehaviourWithLongPolling {
    println(getMe())

    val nameReplyMarkup = ReplyKeyboardMarkup(
      matrix {
        row {
          +SimpleKeyboardButton("nope")
        }
      }
    )
    onCommand("start") {
      val photo = waitPhoto(
        SendTextMessage(it.chat.id, "Send me your photo please")
      ).first()

      val name = waitText(
        SendTextMessage(
          it.chat.id,
          "Send me your name or choose \"nope\"",
          replyMarkup = nameReplyMarkup
        )
      ).first().text.takeIf { it != "nope" }

      sendPhoto(
        it.chat,
        photo.mediaCollection,
        entities = buildEntities {
          if (name != null) regular(name) // may be collapsed up to name ?.let(::regular)
        }
      )
    }
  }.join()
}
