TelegramClient

.. currentmodule:: telethon.client

The TelegramClient <telegramclient.TelegramClient> aggregates several mixin classes to provide all the common functionality in a nice, Pythonic interface. Each mixin has its own methods, which you all can use.

In short, to create a client you must run:

from telethon import TelegramClient

client = TelegramClient(name, api_id, api_hash)

async def main():
    # Now you can use all client methods listed below, like for example...
    await client.send_message('me', 'Hello to myself!')

with client:
    client.loop.run_until_complete(main())

You don't need to import these AuthMethods, MessageMethods, etc. Together they are the TelegramClient <telegramclient.TelegramClient> and you can access all of their methods.

See :ref:`client-ref` for a short summary.
