Framework to build a Telegram Bot based on a UWSGI Server

A Python Telegram Bot

Welcome to a UWSGI based abstract Telegram Bot. With this framework you are easily able to set up a complete Telegram Bot with self made commands without a lot of extra work. All abstract commands are implemented as GET-Responses as explained on https://core.telegram.org/bots/api. This means you don’t need to have experience in HTTP Requests or PHP: All you need is python.

In the next few chapters I will explain you all the Features and how to properly set up the bot.

Set Up

First of all, as we are talking about an abstract bot you first need to implement this package.

For programming with the bot, you need the following:

  1. At least Python 3.X
  2. A good supported Python IDE (for example PyCharm)
  3. This python package , available on pypi

An example implementation of this bot will be soon available in the example folder.

For using your bot implemenation on a real server

  1. At least Python 3.X
  2. Install this package with pip install xxxx
  3. Install regis with pip install redis
  4. Install uwsgi with pip install uwsgi

Warning: It’s recommended that you install all packages used for your bot on a virtual environment to not mess up your OS. All infos about Virtual Environments can be read on http://docs.python-guide.org/en/latest/dev/virtualenvs/. With virtual environments you can keep all the used requirements only for this project / bot.

More instructions will follow.

Features

Commands and Inline Commands

This Bot support both the normal commands and the newly added inline commands. To add new commands you simply create methods inside either a Command- or InlineCommandClass. The name of the method is the command itself. To add more command- inlinecommandclasses to your bot you simply add the to the lists which you give the class TGBotWSGI when you initialise the bot. For more information check the example.

Configuration

All configurations are managed by *.ini - files.

UWSGI

Bot

For correctly configuring the bot, you need a file /resources/config/config.ini inside your bot project. All needed attributes will be explained here in future and will also be shown in the example.

Logging

The Bot supports a complete logger and can be accessed in telegram/tglogging/init.py .

Files

You are able to save several data in .json files. To define new files you simply define a folder for all your json filesm in the bot-configuration and define json-file-names in a list when implementing the class TGBotWSGI.

Redis

File Server

To save performance when e.g. loading files, a cache server is implemented. Every time a command has been recognized, all the created files will be loaded into the cache of this server, if the cache is empty. If it is not empty, every time a command has been recognized the cache will be used to make the bot more performant.

Limit Server

To prevent spam there is a limit cache server. In the config.ini you are able to set the amount and time of a limit: - Amount: How many commands are allowed until you start to restrict the use of the bot? - Time: What period are we looking at? When will the restriction be resetted?

Conversation Server

Furthermore a conversation cache server has also been added to add support for longer command conversations. If you , for example, start with a command, the bot then can answer back with a second question. You will then answer back etc. All these commands will be explained in the next sub-chapter.
