Learning by example
We believe that the best way to learn and understand this simple package is by example. So here are some examples for you to review. Even if it’s not your approach for learning, please take a look at echobot2, it is de facto the base for most of the bots out there. Best of all, the code for these examples are released to the public domain, so you can start by grabbing the code and building on top of it.
This library uses the logging module. To set up logging to standard output, put:
import logging logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG, format='%(asctime)s - %(name)s - %(levelname)s - %(message)s')
at the beginning of your script.
You can also use logs in your application by calling logging.getLogger() and setting the log level you want:
logger = logging.getLogger() logger.setLevel(logging.INFO)
If you want DEBUG logs instead:
python-telegram-bot’s documentation lives at readthedocs.io.
You can get help in several ways:
You may copy, distribute and modify the software provided that modifications are described and licensed for free under LGPL-3. Derivatives works (including modifications or anything statically linked to the library) can only be redistributed under LGPL-3, but applications that use the library don’t have to be.
