Hello. My name is Milly, and I've been writing Telegram bots for a few years now. I used to write Telegram bots in PHP without any libraries. When I had to make a website, I learned about laravel and realized that Laravel has everything. I just lacked a library to work with the Telegram API in Laravel and decided to develop it myself.
Laragram: a Laravel package to integrate the Telegram bot API
- It has every method of Telegram bot API that is fully documented.
- Update-objects, which are easy to handle, are documented too.
- FSM Routing
First, install the Laragram package, and make sure that the database connection settings are correct!
composer require milly/laragram
Then run these commands to publish assets and config
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Milly\Laragram\LaragramServiceProvider"
Add your telegram bot token to .env
Run migration to be able to use FSM-Routing
php artisan migrate
And we are ready to use telegram methods. Let's test the basic sendMessage method:
When you run this code, you should get the message 'Hello world' from your telegram bot (you should have started the bot before). And that's it. Isn't it easy?
