Bot Commands

To add bot commands so they pop up when you type /, you need to let the BotFather know of the commands. You will need to make sure the commands correspond with what you have enabled on the appsettings.json file as clicking “/total_coinigy” when you do not have coinigy enabled will not do anything.

  1. Clear history on your telegram bot to pick up the commands

  • Check to see if there are any new properties in the new appsettings.json and add then to your existing one.

  • Type /help when the bot is running


This app needs to be run all the time to have the bot running. I might look at creating a windows service for this for windows users. For linux, there are a couple of options.

  • I use screen. Type “screen -S telegram” to create a new screen. Run the bot like above and CTRL-A-D to dettach from the screen. “screen -r telegram” to reattach.?Screen cheatsheet
  • Another option is tmux. “tmux start session” then start the bot. Ctrl+b+d to dettach.?tmux cheatsheet
