Full-featured Telegram client library for Python 3
⭐️ Thanks everyone who has starred the project, it means a lot!
What is this?
Telegram is a popular messaging application. This library is meant to make it easy for you to write Python programs that can interact with Telegram. Think of it as a wrapper that has already done the heavy job for you, so you can focus on developing an application.
pip3 install telethon
Creating a client
import asyncio from telethon import TelegramClient, events # These example values won't work. You must get your own api_id and # api_hash from https://my.telegram.org, under API Development. api_id = 12345 api_hash = '0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef' async def main(): client = TelegramClient('session_name', api_id, api_hash) await client.start() asyncio.run(main())
print((await client.get_me()).stringify()) await client.send_message('username', 'Hello! Talking to you from Telethon') await client.send_file('username', '/home/myself/Pictures/holidays.jpg') await client.download_profile_photo('me') messages = await client.get_messages('username') await messages.download_media() @client.on(events.NewMessage(pattern='(?i)hi|hello')) async def handler(event): await event.respond('Hey!')
