The Telegram Bot Framework.

class Api
import { Api } from "https://deno.land/x/grammy@v1.10.1/mod.ts";

This class provides access to the full Telegram Bot API. All methods of the API have an equivalent on this class, with the most important parameters pulled up into the function signature, and the other parameters captured by an object.

In addition, this class has a property raw that provides raw access to the complete Telegram API, with the method signatures 1:1 represented as documented on the website (https://core.telegram.org/bots/api).

Every method takes an optional AbortSignal object that allows you to cancel the request if desired.

In advanced use cases, this class allows to install transformers that can modify the method and payload on the fly before sending it to the Telegram servers. Confer the config property for this.

Constructors

new
Api(
token: string,
webhookReplyEnvelope?: WebhookReplyEnvelope,
)

Type Parameters

optional
R extends RawApi = RawApi

Properties

readonly
config: { readonly use: TransformerConsumer<R>; readonly installedTransformers: () => Transformer<R>[]; }

Configuration object for the API instance, used as a namespace to separate those API operations that are related to grammY from methods of the Telegram Bot API. Contains advanced options!

readonly
raw: R

Provides access to all methods of the Telegram Bot API exactly as documented on the website (https://core.telegram.org/bots/api). No arguments are pulled up in the function signature for convenience.

If you suppress compiler warnings, this also allows for raw api calls to undocumented methods with arbitrary parameters—use only if you know what you are doing.

Methods

addStickerToSet(
user_id: number,
name: string,
emojis: string,
other?: Other<R, "addStickerToSet", "user_id" | "name" | "emojis">,
signal?: AbortSignal,
)

Use this method to add a new sticker to a set created by the bot. You must use exactly one of the fields png_sticker, tgs_sticker, or webm_sticker. Animated stickers can be added to animated sticker sets and only to them. Animated sticker sets can have up to 50 stickers. Static sticker sets can have up to 120 stickers. Returns True on success.

answerCallbackQuery(
callback_query_id: string,
other?: Other<R, "answerCallbackQuery", "callback_query_id">,
signal?: AbortSignal,
)

Use this method to send answers to callback queries sent from inline keyboards. The answer will be displayed to the user as a notification at the top of the chat screen or as an alert. On success, True is returned.

Alternatively, the user can be redirected to the specified Game URL. For this option to work, you must first create a game for your bot via @Botfather and accept the terms. Otherwise, you may use links like t.me/your_bot?start=XXXX that open your bot with a parameter.

answerInlineQuery(
inline_query_id: string,
results: readonly InlineQueryResult[],
other?: Other<R, "answerInlineQuery", "inline_query_id" | "results">,
signal?: AbortSignal,
)

Use this method to send answers to an inline query. On success, True is returned. No more than 50 results per query are allowed.

Example: An inline bot that sends YouTube videos can ask the user to connect the bot to their YouTube account to adapt search results accordingly. To do this, it displays a 'Connect your YouTube account' button above the results, or even before showing any. The user presses the button, switches to a private chat with the bot and, in doing so, passes a start parameter that instructs the bot to return an OAuth link. Once done, the bot can offer a switch_inline button so that the user can easily return to the chat where they wanted to use the bot's inline capabilities.

answerPreCheckoutQuery(
pre_checkout_query_id: string,
ok: boolean,
other?: Other<R, "answerPreCheckoutQuery", "pre_checkout_query_id" | "ok">,

web_app_query_id: string,
result: InlineQueryResult,
signal?: AbortSignal,
)
