Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emit new event each time a Telegram message is created or updated.
Version:0.0.3
Key:telegram_bot_api-message-updates

Trigger Code

// eslint-disable-next-line camelcase
import telegramBotApi from "../../telegram_bot_api.app.mjs";

export default {
  type: "source",
  key: "telegram_bot_api-message-updates",

    http: {
      type: "$.interface.http",
      customResponse: true,
    },
    telegramBotApi,
  },
  hooks: {
    async activate() {
      await this.telegramBotApi.createHook(this.http.endpoint, [
        "message",
        "edited_message",
      ]);
    },
    async deactivate() {
      await this.telegramBotApi.deleteHook();
    },
  },
  async run(event) {
    if ((event.path).substring(1) !== this.telegramBotApi.$auth.token) {
      return;
    }
    this.http.respond({
      status: 200,
    });
    const { body } = event;
    if (!body) {
      return;
    }
    const message = body.edited_message ?? body.message;
    this.$emit(body,
      {
        id: body.update_id,
        summary: message.text,
        ts: Date.now(),
      });
  },
};

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.
LabelPropTypeDescription
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
Telegram BottelegramBotApiappThis component uses the Telegram Bot app.

Trigger Authentication

Telegram Bot uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Telegram Bot account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Telegram Bot APIs in both code and no-code steps.

To use the Telegram Bot API, you must first create a new bot by chatting with the BotFather.

At the end of that process, you'll receive a token to authorize requests for your bot. Add that token below.
