A simple Telegram
- Official IRC channel: #teleirc @ irc.freenode.net
- Official Telegram group: Run
teleirc --join-tgfor URL (to prevent spambots)
- Supports multiple IRC channel

- IRC messages can be configured either to be relayed always, or only when the bot is hilighted via a configurable regexp

sudo apt-get install libicu-dev
Make sure you've installed the latest LTS version of Node.js.
- Install the teleirc npm module with
npm install -g teleirc(might need sudo)
- Generate a default config using
teleirc --genconfigNOTE: if this step fails, try
mkdir ~/.teleircand run the command again (FIXME).

- Use the
BotFatherto allow your bot to see all messages in your group (NOTE on usage: bot name is preceded by @ sign and 'Disable' is case-sensitive)

🎉! This is needed to fetch (and store!) an internally used group ID, making communication from IRC to the correct Telegram group possible.
- For your convenience, there is an included systemd unit file: teleirc.service
- You can change your Telegram Bot's profile picture with the
/setuserpicBotFather command. Here's an example icon for you.
- You can tell Telegram which commands the teleirc bot supports by using the
/setcommandsBotFather command. You may copy-paste the contents of
commands.txtto show all supported commands to Telegram clients.
- Instead of enabling the HTTP server for serving sent media files, photo files sent to the groups can be uploaded to Imgur. See the README for Imgur for more information.

older than one minute compared to your system clock, the message is skipped.
You can configure this behaviour via
- Make sure your Telegram group's name and IRC channel has been entered correctly in your config (case sensitive!)
