DartGram #

Intuitive Telegram API handler in Dart with minimal dependencies.

It is async-oriented, meaning every update is handled independently of the others.

It is designed to follow a set of rules defined by the user that are examined for every update. A simple syntax allows the user to specify various filters that each have to match a given message for its corresponding rule to be executed.

The entities laid out are designed to closely follow the types as specified by the Telegram docs. Several methods are then added to render the code more fluent and intuitive to write (for example a message can be reply with .reply(text) or deleted with .delete(), a user can be kicked with .kick(), etc.)

Usage #

A simple usage example:

import 'package:dartgram/dartgram.dart';

main() async {
  var bot = Bot('12345:token');

  .then((m) async {
    await m.reply('pong');

  var isReply = (Message m) => m.reply_to_message != null;
  var isAdmin = (Message m) => m.from.id == 12345678;

  .then((m) async {
    await m.reply(m.reply_to_message.raw.toString());

  await bot.start();

You can also invoke any Telegram API endpoint manually by specifying the parameters:

  var message = await bot.request<Message>('sendMessage', {
    'chat_id': 178578488,
    'text': 'hi'

The object returned will be casted directly from the response returned by Telegram into the specified type, with all its available intuitive methods (reply, delete, etc)

Features and bugs #

This is a work-in-progress and I intend on adding new features as I need them for my personal bots. If you desperately need a feature, you can request it.

0.0.1 #

  • Initial version, created by Stagehand

0.1.0 #

  • Good chunk of the logic coded, actual features will come shortly

0.5.0 #

  • Added enough features to make a somewhat decent bot with it


import 'package:dartgram/dartgram.dart';

void main(List<String> args) async {
  var bot = Bot('12345:token');

  // Standalone request (executes immediately)
  // In this example the response (if successful) is casted into a Message object

  var message = await bot.request<Message>('sendMessage', {
    'chat_id': 12345678,
    'text': 'hello world'

  // The returned object contains all the goody functions:
  await message.edit('Hello, world!');

  // Setting up rules (executes when the polling loop starts)

  // Simple command
  .then((m) async {
    await m.reply('pong');

  // Custom filters (can be stored and reused, etc)
  var isReply = (Message m) => m.reply_to_message != null;
  var isAdmin = (Message m) => m.from.id == 12345678;

  .then((m) async {
    await m.reply(m.reply_to_message.toString());

  // Handle messages that aren't commands
  .when((m) => m.text.contains('hello'))
  .then((m) async {
    await m.reply('hi');

  // Launch the update handling loop
  await bot.start();
