The bot is based on the original work done by PaulSonOfLars This repo was just revamped to suit an Anime-centric community. All original credits go to Paul and his dedication, Without his efforts, this fork would not have been possible!


There are two possible ways of configuring your bot: a file, or ENV variables.

The prefered version is to use a file, as it makes it easier to see all your settings grouped together. This file should be placed in your tg_bot folder, alongside the 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.

An example file could be:

from tg_bot.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
    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 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 messages

  • 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, nothing else)

  • WHITELIST_USERS: A space separated list of user_ids which should be considered whitelisted - they can't be banned.

  • 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 /.
