Kotlogram
Release Build Status

Easy to use and straightforward Kotlin and Java binding of Telegram API. The project is coded in Kotlin, with some classes (mostly legacy classes) in Java

Current layer: 66

Documentation@http://kotlogram.badoualy.com

Kotlin, what is that, I don't know this language!

Don't worry, Kotlin is a JVM language just like Java and Scala, and is fully interoperable with Java! You can use this as a standard Java Library. Kotlogram uses Kotlin to improve the usability of the lib. The TL Language used by Telegram's protocol as used requires a lot of boilerplate code when modeled in a language like Java. To be more developer-friendly, the lib includes a lot of utils in the form of Kotlin extension functions and properties.

TODO list

Important notes

This documentation's only purpose is to explain how the library works, and how to use it. Telegram documentation is sadly completely outdated and not of any use. Probably at some point in the future they'll either close the public API, or release new documentation (I'm hoping for the latter). But this documentation will not explain how to use their API, like how to get messages older than the date X or all the parameters of a rpc method. Please, restrain from opening ticket about questions on the API, as I'll ignore them if I don't have the answer.

Usage

Dependency

First, add JitPack to your project if that's not already the case, in your build.gradle:

repositories {
    // ...
    maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
}

Then add the library dependency:

compile 'com.github.badoualy:kotlogram:1.0.0-RC3'
