Just focus on your bots.
botogram is a Python framework, which allows you to focus just on creating your Telegram bots, without worrying about the underlying Bots API.
While most of the libraries for Telegram out there just wrap the Bots API, botogram focuses heavily on the development experience, aiming to provide you the best API possible. Most of the Telegram implementation details are managed by botogram, so you can just focus on your bot.
import botogram bot = botogram.create("YOUR-API-KEY") @bot.command("hello") def hello_command(chat, message, args): """Say hello to the world!""" chat.send("Hello world") if __name__ == "__main__": bot.run()
Please note botogram currently doesn't support some of the upstream API features. All of them will be implemented in botogram 1.0
Supported Python versions: 3.4, 3.5
You can install easily botogram with pip (be sure to have Python 3.4 or higher installed):
$ python3 -m pip install botogram
If you want to install from the source code, you can clone the repository and install it with setuptools. Be sure to have Python 3.4 (or a newer version), pip, virtualenv, setuptools and invoke installed:
$ git clone https://github.com/pietroalbini/botogram.git $ cd botogram $ invoke install
On some Linux systems you might need to wrap the
invoke install command with
sudo, if you don't have root privileges.
