A self-hosted telegram python bot that dumps posts from RSS feeds to a telegram chat. This script was created because all the third party services were unreliable.

  2. Replace your chatID and Token on the top of the script.
  3. Edit the delay. (seconds)
  4. Save and run
  5. Use the telegram commands to manage feeds

Warning! Without chatID the bot wont be able to send automated messages and will only be able to respond to messages.

Usage

RSS to Telegram bot

After successfully adding a RSS link, the bot starts fetching the feed every 60 seconds. (This can be set) Titles are used to easily manage RSS feeds and need to contain only one word

commands:

/add title http://www(.)URL(.)com

/help Shows this text

/remove !Title! removes the RSS link

/list Lists all the titles and the RSS links from the DB

/test Inbuilt command that fetches a post from Reddits RSS.

The current chatId is: 20416xxxx
