For the past year, Telegram has introduced tons of new features including in-app games, bots, Telegraph and Instant Views, channels, groups and many more. What's going to be a next killer feature? Nobody knows. In this humble note I would like to show you how you can create a simple telegram bot using a popular programming language called Python.
Bots are great at many things, especially at automating borings tasks. It is up to your imagination what functions your future bot will have, but today we are going to create the one which will communicate with Planet Python, popular Python news aggregator. Bot will simply parse latest content and send it back to you via Telegram.
Our app will consist of django app and its source code is available on my github as planetpython_telegrambot repo. Feel free to fork and do whatever you want to do :)
