How to make a telegram bot in V

vgram

vgram is a bot library for the Telegram Bot API written in V.
The Bot API is an HTTP-based interface created for developers keen on building bots for Telegram.

It currently implements every method from Telegram Bot API 4.8

Installing

  • Using vpm: v install dariotarantini.vgram
  • Using vpkg: vpkg get vgram

Getting started

  1. Search for the “@botfather” telegram bot and start it
  2. Click on or type /newbot to create a new bot and follow his instructions
  3. Copy the token and create a file named sendMessage.v with the following code:
module main

import dariotarantini.vgram

fn main(){
    bot := vgram.new_bot('TELEGRAM_BOT_TOKEN_HERE')
    bot.send_message({
        chat_id: "USER_ID_HERE",
        text: 'yo! Made using vgram!'
    })
}

Documentation

You can find the documentation directly on the Telegram website or you can read it in the vgram source code. See methods.v and types.v.

Call a method using:

bot_instance.method_name({
    method_arg1: "some text"
    method_arg1: 123 // or int
})

- *bot_instance* can be created using bot_instance := vgram.Bot{"TOKEN"} or bot_instance.new_bot("TOKEN")
- *method_name* and *method_args* shoud be in snake_case

Thats it. You are ready to go.
