Bots: An introduction for developers

Bots are special Telegram accounts designed to handle messages automatically. Users can interact with bots by sending them command messages in private or group chats.

You control your bots using HTTPS requests to bot API.

The Bot API is an HTTP-based interface created for developers keen on building bots for Telegram. To learn how to create and set up a bot, please consult Introduction to Bots and Bot FAQ.

require_once "vendor/autoload.php";

try {

Botan SDK (not supported more)

Botan is a telegram bot analytics system based on Yandex.Appmetrica. In this document you can find how to setup Yandex.Appmetrica account, as well as examples of Botan SDK usage.

Creating an account

  • Register at http://appmetrica.yandex.com/
  • After registration you will be prompted to create Application. Please use @YourBotName as a name.
  • Save an API key from settings page, you will use it as a token for Botan API calls.
  • Download lib for your language, and use it as described below. Don`t forget to insert your token!

Since we are only getting started, you may discover that some existing reports in AppMetriсa aren't properly working for Telegram bots, like Geography, Gender, Age, Library, Devices, Traffic sources and Network sections. We will polish that later.

SDK usage

Standalone

$tracker = new \TelegramBot\Api\Botan('YOUR_BOTAN_TRACKER_API_KEY');

$tracker->track($message, $eventName);

API Wrapper

$bot = new \TelegramBot\Api\BotApi('YOUR_BOT_API_TOKEN', 'YOUR_BOTAN_TRACKER_API_KEY');

$bot->track($message, $eventName);

You can use method getUpdates() and all incoming messages will be automatically tracked as Message-event

Client

$bot = new \TelegramBot\Api\Client('YOUR_BOT_API_TOKEN', 'YOUR_BOTAN_TRACKER_API_KEY');

All registered commands are automatically tracked as command name
