README.md

Mr. Dear

I'm here to help you manage your sites on Oh Dear! App by chat. Also I can text you if something is going wrong (Let's hope it'll be no need to 😉)

Interacting with the bot

Commands

  • /sites - I'll show you a list with your current sites and their most recent status result.
  • /newsite {url} - We will begin a delightful conversation in order to add a new site to your collection.
  • /deletesite {url or id} - I get it, you don't want to see that site anymore, but first we will confirm you really want to do this.
  • /site {url or id} - I'll be glad to show you all the information regarding to a specific site.
  • /downtime {url or id} - Let's see how many times your site was down for the last month.
  • /uptime {url or id} - I'll tell you the percentage your site was up on the last month.
  • /brokenlinks {url or id} - Check out your website's broken links in a second.
  • /mixedcontent {url or id} - Check out your website's mixed content.

Action Buttons

Since the moment you ask me about your sites (/sites) I'll show you the name of your sites along with an indicator to see quickly if it's online ( or 🔴) in form of a button. You can click it to see more information about your site and another group of buttons to check other common actions like Broken Links, Downtime, etc...

Webhooks

During the /start process, the bot will ask you for your API token in order to interact with your sites, but also your webhook signing secret. This information can be found at the end of the Notifications page.

With this key configured, the bot can warn you if there's any problem with your site. Currently notifications supported are:

  • Uptime Check Failed
  • Broken Links Found

Installation

This bot is currently functional at MrDear_bot on Telegram, so you don't have to do anything to get up and running.

However, there's a chance you want to host it yourself. If that's your case, just follow the few steps described below.

composer install
php artisan migrate
cp .env.example .env

Registering the bot

After that, you will need to create your own Telegram Bot.

Once you have obtained the access token, place it in your .env file like TELEGRAM_TOKEN=token.

Telegram needs to send the incoming messages to your bot. In order to configure that, you can use the following command

php artisan botman:telegram:register

The default url will be yourdomain.com/botman. It must be HTTPS

If you're developing in a local environment, take in mind using Laravel Valet feature valet share. It uses ngrok under the hood to make your project accessible from the outside.

That's it. You can now talk to your bot through Telegram.

Troubleshooting

If your is not running as you've expected you have a few tools to help you see what's going on:

  • If you're using valet share for local development you already have a custom dashboard to check incoming requests at http://127.0.0.1:4040 by ngrok.
  • To see the full error, check the storage/logs/laravel.log file. Take in mind that Telegram re-sends a failed request up to 4 more times.
  • To debug the application, you can use Beyond Code package called laravel-dump-server. It's already installed in this project, you just need to run php artisan dump-server and put some dump($var) in your code to see it in the terminal.
