A modular Telegram Python bot running on python3 with a sqlalchemy, redis, telethon.

How to setup/deploy.

Read these notes carefully before proceeding

  • Your code must be open source and a link to your fork’s repository must be there in the start reply of the bot.
Steps to deploy on Heroku !!

Fill in all the details, Deploy!
Now go to ( Replace (app-name) with your app name )
REMEMBER: Turn on worker dyno (Don't worry It's free :D) & Webhook
Now send the bot /start, If it doesn't respond go to and remove webhook and port.


Steps to self Host!!

Setting up the bot (Read this before trying to use!):

Please make sure to use python3.6, as I cannot guarantee everything will work as expected on older Python versions!
This is because markdown parsing is done by iterating through a dict, which is ordered by default in 3.6.


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

The preferred 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 GilbertAnimeBot 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 GilbertAnimeBot.sample_config import Config

class Development(Config):
    OWNER_ID = 2022280326  # your telegram ID
    OWNER_USERNAME = "AASFCYBERKING"  # your telegram username
    API_KEY = "your bot api key"  # your api key, as provided by the @botfather
    SQLALCHEMY_DATABASE_URI = 'postgresql://username:password@localhost:5432/database'  # sample db credentials
    JOIN_LOGGER = '-1234567890' # some group chat that your bot is a member of
    DRAGONS = [1544286112, 1669178360]  # 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

  • DEV_USERS: A space-separated list of user_ids which should be considered dev users

  • SUPPORT_USERS: A space-separated list of user_ids which should be considered support users (can gban/ungban, nothing

  • 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 won’t 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 /.

Python dependencies

Install the necessary Python dependencies by moving to the project directory and running:

pip3 install -r requirements.txt.

This will install all the 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 database on a Debian/ubuntu system. Other distributions may

  • install postgresql:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install postgresql

  • change to the Postgres user:

sudo su - postgres

  • create a new database user (change YOUR_USER appropriately):

createuser -P -s -e YOUR_USER

This will be followed by you need to input your password.

  • create a new database table:


Change YOUR_USER and YOUR_DB_NAME appropriately.

  • finally:


This will allow you to connect to your database via your terminal. By default, YOUR_HOST should be

You should now be able to build your database URI. This will be:


Replace sqldbtype with whichever DB you’re using (e.g. Postgres, MySQL, SQLite, `etc.)
repeat for your username, password, hostname (localhost?), port (5432?), and DB name.

Or, register on ElephantSQL for free Postgresql. Learn for your self, I won’t learn you
