  • filename: str Filename under which data specific to this job should be saved


More specific class which adds the possiblity to get the actual value and implements user handling. The data is saved to a JSON file. The callback method ( callback(self, context: telegram.ext.CallbackContext)) must be implemented.


Extension of the GenericTask to simplify the usage for jobs calling a URL and returning the link/ response to the subscribers. It retries every 2 seconds until it gets a response.

This class adds a url field where the information lies.

The handle_response(self, response: Response) must be implemented to extract the data from the request and return the message string.
