A Ruby wrapper that communicates with the Telegram-CLI.

Installation

Requirements

  • You need to install the Telegram-CLI version 1.3.0 or higher first.

RubyGems

In order to use the telegram-rb you will need to install the gem (either manually or using Bundler), and require the library in your Ruby application:

$ gem install telegram-rb

or in your Gemfile:

# latest stable
gem 'telegram-rb', require: 'telegram'

# or track master repo
gem 'telegram-rb', github: 'ssut/telegram-rb', require: 'telegram'

Usage

The library uses EventMachine, so the logic is wrapped in EM.run.

# When using Bundler, let it load all libraries
require 'bundler' 
Bundler.require(:default) 

# Otherwise, require 'telegram', which will load its dependencies
# require 'telegram'

EM.run do
  telegram = Telegram::Client.new do |cfg, auth|
    cfg.daemon = '/path/to/tg/bin/telegram-cli'
    cfg.key = '/path/to/tg/tg-server.pub'
    cfg.config_file = '/path/to/config' # optional, default file will be used if not set
    cfg.profile = 'user2' # optional, the profiles must be configured in ~/.telegram-cli/config
    cfg.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT) # optional, default logger will be created if not set

    # optional properties, could be used for authorization/registration telegram accounts
    auth.phone_number = '<valid phone number>'
    auth.confirmation_code = -> { '<received confirmation code via sms or call>' }
    auth.register = { # required in case with registration new telegram account
      first_name: '<user first name>',
      last_name: '<user last name>'
    }
  end

  telegram.connect do
    # This block will be executed when initialized.
    
    # See your telegram profile
    puts telegram.profile

    telegram.contacts.each do |contact|
      puts contact
    end
    
    telegram.chats.each do |chat|
      puts chat
    end
    
    # Event listeners
    # When you've received a message:
    telegram.on[Telegram::EventType::RECEIVE_MESSAGE] = Proc.new do |event|
      # `tgmessage` is TelegramMessage instance
      puts event.tgmessage
    end 

    # When you've sent a message:
    telegram.on[Telegram::EventType::SEND_MESSAGE] = Proc.new do |event|
      puts event
    end

    # When connection is closed:
    telegram.on_disconnect = Proc.new do
      puts 'Connection with telegram-cli is closed'
    end
  end
end
