sedbot is a telegram bot that emulates the sed command used in Unix terminals

How it works

From Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia: sed (stream editor) is a Unix utility that parses and transforms text, using a simple, compact programming language.

To install this masterpiece you need: Python and Python-telegram-bot Get the version 2.x.x of Python here and install this release for your OS.

Then, type this in your home folder:

git clone

cd sedbot

python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

Congratulations, you are ready to start the bot.

Get the token

We are not ready yet, we have to get a new and shiny HTTP API token from the father of all bots, @botfather.

Type /start to start the bot, then type /newbot to create a new bot and follow all the instructions, please let the users know that your bot is a fork of this repository by putting the repo link in the description, thanks. After all of that you will get a piece of text similar to this:


Copy the piece of text that you recived from botfather and paste it into the file between the apostrophes, this will tell to the telegram servers wich bot needs to run the code.

Start the bot

You are ready finally ready to start your bot, if you have to do any modifications to the code, do those now and come back here when you have finished.

In order to fire up the bot you need to type this:


The bot is now running, to do a test, write test, then reply to your message with s/e/oa. The bot should output:

I think this is better: toast

Protip: Keep your bot running even when you exit your session

To prevent your bot from stopping when you end your session, use the nohup command in the sedbot folder:

nohup python &

To stop the bot that you have started with this command, simply kill the python process
