A simple Telegram Bot C++ library
To compile, you just need a C++-Compiler and CMake and some libraries:
- libcurl4-openssl-dev (or similar)
and - of course - their dependencies.
To compile and install the lib:
- mkdir build
- cd build/
- cmake ../
- sudo make install
- sudo ldconfig
To use the library, you need:
You can use example01.cc to start your own bot or CGI script.
Do not forget to send your web hook URL to Telegram's API network, otherwise, you cannot send commands to your bot.
In case you build a CGI script, do not forget to add a valid certificate to your web server, because your bot is only called via HTTPS!
