The ultimate tool to automate custom telegram message forwarding.
Live-syncer, Auto-poster, backup-bot, cloner, chat-forwarder, duplicator, ...
Call it whatever you like! tgcf can fulfill your custom needs.
The key features are:
Forward messages as "forwarded" or send a copy of the messages from source to destination chats.
A chat can be anything: a group, channel, person or even another bot.
Supports two modes of operation past or live.
The past mode deals with all existing messages, while the live mode is for upcoming ones.
You may login with a bot or an user account.
Telegram imposes certain limitations on bot accounts. You may use an user account to perform the forwards if you wish.
Perform custom manipulation on messages.
