About The Project

Telepath is a modern framework-agnostic libraray to create Telegram Bots in PHP.

It stands out by generating a lot of PHP Code automatically from the Telegram Bot API documentation and using modern PHP features like Attributes and Named Parameters.

Before You Start

We want to make use of modern PHP all the way but the development of PHP doesn't stop. This means if there will be a feature in a new PHP version that makes sense to use in this package, we will.

So beware of that and only use this library if you're running in a setup where you can easily upgrade to new PHP versions when they get released.

  1. Require this package with composer require telepath/telepath
  2. Create an instance and pass it your Bot API Token via $bot = new TelegramBot($token);
  3. Call all available methods of the Telegram Bot API via the Bot Instance, like $bot->sendMessage($chatId, $text);

For a more detailled look including how to receive and react to messages and commands, have a look into our Documentation
