Readme

TelegramBot API
Master: Build Status This library wraps the TelegramBot API and can be used to interact with bots generated by using BotFather

Installation

``` nodejs npm install telegrambot ```

Available Methods

All methods available on the API can be access using this library. The list of methods and expected results can be found in the Bot API document. The methods can be used like this (wrappers): ``` nodejs var TelegramBot = require('telegrambot'); var api = new TelegramBot(''); api.getMe(callback); api.sendMessage(opts, callback); api.forwardMessage(opts, callback); api.sendPhoto(opts, callback; api.sendAudio(opts, callback); api.sendDocument(opts, callback); api.sendSticker(opts, callback); api.sendVideo(opts, callback); api.sendLocation(opts, callback); api.sendChatAction(opts, callback); api.sendContact(opts, callback); api.getUserProfilePhotos(opts, callback); api.getFile(opts, callback); api.kickChatMember(opts, callback); api.unbanChatMember(opts, callback); api.answerCallbackQuery(opts, callback); api.editMessageText(opts, callback); api.editMessageCaption(opts, callback); api.editMessageReplyMarkup(opts, callback); api.answerInlineQuery(opts, callback); api.getUpdates(opts, callback); api.setWebhook(opts, callback); ```

Usage

``` nodejs var TelegramBot = require('telegrambot'); var fs = require('fs'); var api = new TelegramBot(''); api.sendMessage({ chatid: 1, text: 'test' }, function (err, message) {
if (err) throw err;
console.log(message);
}); api.sendPhoto({ chat
id: 1, photo: fs.createReadStream(dirname + '/test.jpg') }, function (err, message) {
if (err) throw err;
console.log(message);
}); ```

Using 'invoke'

The library contains an invoke call that can be used to call any API method even before it's been implemented as part of the library interface. All library calls wrap this call and serve mostly as a convenience. ``` nodejs var TelegramBot = require('telegrambot'); var fs = require('fs'); var api = new TelegramBot(''); api.invoke('getMe', {}, function (err, me) {
if (err) throw err;
console.log(me);
});
