As many of you know already, telegram offers a open API for coding bots. This is an awesome replacement for E-Mail and SMS notifications. Here is a super simple example how to start making your own Python Telegram Bot. 1. PIP & Library https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/ After installing PIP , use the following command to install the required libary: Code: pip install pyTelegramBotAPI 2. Create the bot and receive the tokens from Telegram https://core.telegram.org/bots#3-how-do-i-create-a-bot 3. How to tell the bot in which channel to send messages to? Invite the bot to the channel or group where you want to send messages. Wait until a message is sent into the group or send a message yourself. Then visit: https://api.telegram.org/botTOKEN_HERE/getUpdates?offset=0 (replace the "TOKEN_HERE" with your bot token. It should look like this: "294044544:AAG-F6JIC7ptNTqadg345TI1NiQmHYMybOU") to get the chat id. It will look similar to this: "297178735". 4. Source code: Code: import telebot tb = telebot.TeleBot(token) tb.send_message(chatid, 'hey. i am the bot!')
