Template for tiny Rails app with Telegram bot

Here you can find template for tiny Rails application with Telegram bot. The repository itself is generated with this template.

What do you get:

  • telegram-bot.
  • RSpec for tests.
  • Pry for debug.
  • Simple bot controller.

This is just a template bot and it doesn't have much commands to show. For more complex example see telegram_bot_app.

For non-Rails app here is another example.

Setup

Here is a command to generate smalles possible installation of rails. Choose yourself what railties to enable:

rails new app_name \
  --api \
  --skip-action-mailer \
  --skip-active-record \
  --skip-action-cable \
  --skip-test \
  -m https://raw.githubusercontent.com/telegram-bot-rb/rails_template/master/rails_template.rb

After setup:

  • Add this lines to bin/setup:

    puts "\n== Copying sample files =="
    system 'bin/copy_samples'
  • Setup bot config in config/secrets.yml.

  • Uncomment this line in spec/rails_helper.rb:

    Dir[Rails.root.join('spec/support/**/*.rb')].each { |f| require f }
  • Optional. Uncomment default configuration in spec/spec_helper.rb.

  • Optional. If you don't use ActiveRecord, you may want to remove config/database.yml line from bin/copy_samples and .gitignore.
