Ruby client for the Telegram's Bot API. Compliant with the version 2016-01-20 of the API.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'telegrammer'

And then execute:

$ bundle


First you'll need to register your bot and get an API token. To do that you have to talk with the @BotFather. Learn more about this here.

After getting your token, you can do things like this:

require 'telegrammer'


bot.get_updates do |message|
  puts "In chat #{}, @#{message.from.username} said: #{message.text}"
  bot.send_message(chat_id:, text: "You said: #{message.text}")

  # Here you can also process message text to detect user commands
  # To learn more about commands, see

This gem currently supports all operations exposed by the Telegram's Bot API. All the classes and methods are documented with examples, so please check the documentation. Also you can check the the wiki, where you'll find more info about topics like setting webhooks for your bot.
