tbot 0.2.2

Make cool Telegram bots with Rust easily.


Make cool Telegram bots with Rust easily. For example, here's a simple echo bot:

use tbot::prelude::*;

fn main() {
    let mut bot = tbot::bot!("BOT_TOKEN").event_loop();

    bot.text(|context| {
        let reply = context
            .map_err(|err| {



If you're a newcomer, we recommend you go through the tutorial first. We also have several How-to guides to help you use tbot.

If you have a question, ask it in our group on Telegram. If you find a bug, fill an issue on either our GitLab or GitHub repository.


  • Full Bots API support, including media upload/download and recent API updates;
  • Support for both polling and webhooks;
  • Type-safe API;
  • Based on futures and tokio;
  • Easy to use, while scalable and configurable.


Add tbot to your Cargo.toml:

tbot = "0.2"


There are many examples in the examples directory to see tbot in action. If you want to get started with tbot, go through the tutorial. When you start making your bot, our How-to guides may help you. And you can always refer to our API docs on docs.rs (docs for master are also available here).


Glad you want to contribute to tbot! We develop the crate on GitLab, so create your pull/merge request there if you can. We accept pull requests on GitHub as well, but we prefer GitLab.
