with HunterxHunter theme.
Modular Telegram bot for managing your groups with a extras features with HunterxHunter theme.
There are two possible ways of configuring your bot: a config.py file, or ENV variables.
The prefered version is to use a
config.py file, as it makes it easier to see all your settings grouped together.
This file should be placed in your
alluka folder, alongside the
__main__.py file .
This is where your bot token will be loaded from, as well as your database URI (if you're using a database), and most of
your other settings.
It is recommended to import sample_config and extend the Config class, as this will ensure your config contains all defaults set in the sample_config, hence making it easier to upgrade.
config.py file could be:
from alluka.sample_config import Config class Development(Config): OWNER_ID = 254318997 # my telegram ID OWNER_USERNAME = "SonOfLars" # my telegram username API_KEY = "your bot api key" # my api key, as provided by the botfather SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'postgresql://username:password@localhost:5432/database' # sample db credentials MESSAGE_DUMP = '-1234567890' # some group chat that your bot is a member of USE_MESSAGE_DUMP = True SUDO_USERS = [18673980, 83489514] # List of id's for users which have sudo access to the bot. LOAD =  NO_LOAD = ['translation']
If you can't have a config.py file (EG on heroku), it is also possible to use environment variables. The following env variables are supported:
ENV: Setting this to ANYTHING will enable env variables
TOKEN: Your bot token, as a string.
OWNER_ID: An integer of consisting of your owner ID
OWNER_USERNAME: Your username
DATABASE_URL: Your database URL
MESSAGE_DUMP: optional: a chat where your replied saved messages are stored, to stop people deleting their old
LOAD: Space separated list of modules you would like to load
NO_LOAD: Space separated list of modules you would like NOT to load
WEBHOOK: Setting this to ANYTHING will enable webhooks when in env mode
URL: The URL your webhook should connect to (only needed for webhook mode)
SUDO_USERS: A space separated list of user_ids which should be considered sudo users
SUPPORT_USERS: A space separated list of user_ids which should be considered support users (can gban/ungban,
WHITELIST_USERS: A space separated list of user_ids which should be considered whitelisted - they can't be banned.
DONATION_LINK: Optional: link where you would like to receive donations.
CERT_PATH: Path to your webhook certificate
PORT: Port to use for your webhooks
DEL_CMDS: Whether to delete commands from users which don't have rights to use that command
STRICT_GBAN: Enforce gbans across new groups as well as old groups. When a gbanned user talks, he will be banned.
WORKERS: Number of threads to use. 8 is the recommended (and default) amount, but your experience may vary.
Note that going crazy with more threads wont necessarily speed up your bot, given the large amount of sql data
accesses, and the way python asynchronous calls work.
BAN_STICKER: Which sticker to use when banning people.
ALLOW_EXCL: Whether to allow using exclamation marks ! for commands as well as /.
Install the necessary python dependencies by moving to the project directory and running:
pip3 install -r requirements.txt.
This will install all necessary python packages.
If you wish to use a database-dependent module (eg: locks, notes, userinfo, users, filters, welcomes), you'll need to have a database installed on your system. I use postgres, so I recommend using it for optimal compatibility.
In the case of postgres, this is how you would set up a the database on a debian/ubuntu system. Other distributions may vary.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install postgresql
sudo su - postgres
createuser -P -s -e YOUR_USER
This will be followed by you needing to input your password.
createdb -O YOUR_USER YOUR_DB_NAME
Change YOUR_USER and YOUR_DB_NAME appropriately.
psql YOUR_DB_NAME -h YOUR_HOST YOUR_USER
This will allow you to connect to your database via your terminal. By default, YOUR_HOST should be 0.0.0.0:5432.
You should now be able to build your database URI. This will be:
Replace sqldbtype with whichever db youre using (eg postgres, mysql, sqllite, etc) repeat for your username, password, hostname (localhost?), port (5432?), and db name.
