    git clone

  2. Install using pip

import os
import asyncio
from atbot import TelegramBot, TelegramMessage, ChatAction

API_KEY = os.getenv('API_KEY')

async def handle_message(bot, msg):
    if msg.text == '/start':
        await bot.send_chat_action(, ChatAction.TYPING)
        await asyncio.sleep(0.2)
        await bot.send_message(, 'Hello, {0}!'.format(msg.sender.first_name))

async def my_bot():
    bot = TelegramBot(API_KEY)
    while True:
        updates = await bot.get_updates()
        for update in updates:
            obj = update.get_obj()
            if isinstance(obj, TelegramMessage):
