Project description

Release news available here: @RocketgramNews

How to install

For development

pip install rocketgram[aiohttp]

For production

pip install rocketgram[aiohttp,ujson]


All dependencies are optional but you should install one of aiohttp and tornado to use framework.

ujson is highly recommended to speedup json parsing.

Also you can use uvloop as alternative to standard event loop.

  • Python >= 3.7
  • aiohttp >= 3.6.2
  • ujson >= 1.35
  • tornado >= 6.0.2
  • uvloop >= 0.12.1


There is a trivial example below. Here is useful bot template.

from rocketgram import Bot, Dispatcher, UpdatesExecutor
from rocketgram import context, commonfilters
from rocketgram import SendMessage

token = 'YOUR_BOT_TOKEN'

router = Dispatcher()
bot = Bot(token, router=router)

async def start_command():
    await SendMessage(context.user.user_id, 'Hello there!').send()

async def start_command():
    await SendMessage(context.user.user_id, 'Some userful help!').send()


Code tested automatically using Github Actions. You can see build status here.

To test code manually install and run pytest:

pip install pytest
python -m pytest
