A Step By Step Guide To Building Your First Telegram Bot

Do you want to write a step by step guide to building your first telegram bot?

Here are very simple step you can follow :

  1. Sign up for a Telegram account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Create a new bot by talking to the BotFather on Telegram. Use the command “/newbot” to create a new bot, and follow the instructions provided by the BotFather. You will receive a token for your bot.
  3. Decide on the programming language you want to use to build your bot. Some popular choices include Python, JavaScript, and Java.
  4. Choose a library or framework to help you interact with the Telegram API. Some popular options include python-telegram-bot and telebot for Python, and node-telegram-bot-api for JavaScript.
  5. Create a new project and write code to handle commands and events from Telegram. Use the token received from the BotFather to authenticate your bot.
  6. Test your bot by sending commands to it and handling the responses in your code.
  7. Deploy your bot to a server or hosting service.
  8. Finally, share your bot with others by sharing the link to the bot and invite other users to interact with it.

now we will learn to write a sample program for creating a telegram bot using python, java and javascript.

create a telegram bot using python

  1. First, make sure you have Python installed on your computer. You can download it from the official website if you don’t have it already.
  2. Next, we need to install the python-telegram-bot library. Open a terminal and run the command:
pip install python-telegram-bot
  1. Sign up for a Telegram account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Create a new bot by talking to the BotFather on Telegram. Use the command “/newbot” to create a new bot, and follow the instructions provided by the BotFather. You will receive a token for your bot.
  3. Create a new Python file and import the library by running:
import telegram
from telegram.ext import Updater, CommandHandler
  1. Next, create an Updater object, using the token you received from the BotFather:
updater = Updater(token=YOUR_TOKEN, use_context=True)
  1. Define the function that will handle commands sent to your bot. For example:
def start(update, context):
    context.bot.send_message(chat_id=update.message.chat_id, text="Hello, I'm your first Telegram bot!")
  1. Create a CommandHandler object that will map the function to the /start command:
start_handler = CommandHandler('start', start)
updater.dispatcher.add_handler(start_handler)
  1. Start the bot by running:
updater.start_polling()
  1. Test your bot by sending the /start command to it. You should receive a message “Hello, I’m your first Telegram bot!
  2. Deploy your bot to a server or hosting service, for example using Heroku or AWS, and finally, share your bot with others by sharing the link to the bot and invite other users to interact with it.

create a telegram bot using java

  1. First, make sure you have Java installed on your computer. You can download it from the official website if you don’t have it already.
  2. Next, we need to install the Java Telegram Bot API library. You can do this by adding the following dependency to your build.gradle file:
implementation 'org.telegram:telegrambots:4.8.1'
  1. Sign up for a Telegram account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Create a new bot by talking to the BotFather on Telegram. Use the command “/newbot” to create a new bot, and follow the instructions provided by the BotFather. You will receive a token for your bot.
  3. Create a new Java class and import the library by running:
import org.telegram.telegrambots.ApiContextInitializer;
import org.telegram.telegrambots.meta.TelegramBotsApi;
import org.telegram.telegrambots.meta.exceptions.TelegramApiException;
  1. Next, create an instance of TelegramBotsApi and register your bot by creating an instance of your bot class that extends TelegramLongPollingBot and registering it with the TelegramBotsApi:
ApiContextInitializer.init();
TelegramBotsApi botsApi = new TelegramBotsApi();
try {
    botsApi.registerBot(new YourBotClass());
} catch (TelegramApiException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
}
  1. In your bot class, override the onUpdateReceived method to handle incoming updates from Telegram. For example:
@Override
public void onUpdateReceived(Update update) {
    if (update.hasMessage() && update.getMessage().hasText()) {
        sendMessage(update.getMessage().getChatId().toString(), "Hello, I'm your first Telegram bot!");
    }
}
  1. In the same class, override the getBotUsername and getBotToken methods to return your bot’s username and token, respectively.
  2. Test your bot by sending a message to it. You should receive a message “Hello, I’m your first Telegram bot!
  3. Deploy your bot to a server or hosting service, for example using AWS or Heroku, and finally, share your bot with others by sharing the link to the bot and invite other users to interact with it.

create a telegram bot using javascript

  1. First, make sure you have Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) installed on your computer. You can download it from the official website if you don’t have it already.
  2. Next, we need to install the node-telegram-bot-api library. Open a terminal and run the command:
npm install node-telegram-bot-api
  1. Sign up for a Telegram account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Create a new bot by talking to the BotFather on Telegram. Use the command “/newbot” to create a new bot, and follow the instructions provided by the BotFather. You will receive a token for your bot.
  3. Create a new JavaScript file and import the library by running:
const TelegramBot = require('node-telegram-bot-api');
  1. Next, create an instance of TelegramBot using the token you received from the BotFather:
const bot = new TelegramBot(YOUR_TOKEN, {polling: true});
  1. Define the function that will handle commands sent to your bot. For example:
bot.onText(/\/start/, (msg) => {
    bot.sendMessage(msg.chat.id, "Hello, I'm your first Telegram bot!");
});
  1. Test your bot by sending the /start command to it. You should receive a message “Hello, I’m your first Telegram bot!
  2. Deploy your bot to a server or hosting service, for example using Heroku or AWS, and finally, share your bot with others by sharing the link to the bot and invite other users to interact with it.
  3. Keep in mind that for production, you should use webhook instead of polling, this way you can receive real-time updates without the need of keep polling for updates.
