grocy-telegram-bot is a telegram bot that allows you to receive notifications and interact with Grocy.

How it works

grocy-telegram-bot is a self contained python application that talks to your Grocy instance via its REST API for which pygrocy is used.

How to use

Manual installation


Install grocy-telegram-bot using pip:

pip3 install grocy-telegram-bot


grocy-telegram-bot uses container-app-conf to provide configuration via a YAML file as well as ENV variables. Have a look at the documentation about it.

See grocy_telegram_bot_example.yaml for an example in this repo.


Start the bot by using:



To run grocy-telegram-bot using docker you can use the markusressel/grocy-telegram-bot image from DockerHub:

Configure the image using either environment variables, or mount the configuration file from your host system to /app/grocy_telegram_bot.yaml.
