Introduction

This library provides a pure Python interface for the

Telegram Bot API 
. It's compatible with Python versions 3.5+. PTB might also work on
PyPy 
, though there have been a lot of issues before. Hence, PyPy is not officially supported.

In addition to the pure API implementation, this library features a number of high-level classes to make the development of bots easy and straightforward. These classes are contained in the

telegram.ext
submodule.

====================

Telegram API support

All types and methods of the Telegram Bot API 4.8 are supported.

==========

Installing

You can install or upgrade python-telegram-bot with:

.. code:: shell

$ pip install python-telegram-bot --upgrade

Or you can install from source with:

.. code:: shell

$ git clone https://github.com/python-telegram-bot/python-telegram-bot --recursive
$ cd python-telegram-bot
$ python setup.py install

In case you have a previously cloned local repository already, you should initialize the added urllib3 submodule before installing with:

.. code:: shell

$ git submodule update --init --recursive

===============

Getting started

Learning by example

We believe that the best way to learn this package is by example. Here are some examples for you to review. Even if it is not your approach for learning, please take a look at

echobot.py
, it is the de facto base for most of the bots out there. Best of all, the code for these examples are released to the public domain, so you can start by grabbing the code and building on top of it.

Visit

this page 
_ to discover the official examples or look at the examples on the
wiki 
_ to see other bots the community has built.

Logging

This library uses the

logging
module. To set up logging to standard output, put:

.. code:: python

import logging
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG,
                    format='%(asctime)s - %(name)s - %(levelname)s - %(message)s')

at the beginning of your script.

You can also use logs in your application by calling

logging.getLogger()
and setting the log level you want:

.. code:: python

logger = logging.getLogger()
logger.setLevel(logging.INFO)

If you want DEBUG logs instead:

.. code:: python

logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
