tdweb - TDLib in a browser
TDLib is a library for building Telegram clients. tdweb is a convenient wrapper for TDLib in a browser which controls TDLib instance creation, handles interaction with TDLib and manages a filesystem for persistent TDLib data.
For interaction with TDLib, you need to create an instance of the class
TdClient, providing a handler for incoming updates and other options if needed.
Once this is done, you can send queries to the TDLib instance using the method
TdClient.send which returns a Promise object representing the result of the query.
See Getting Started for a description of basic TDLib concepts and a short introduction to TDLib usage.
See the td_api.tl scheme or the automatically generated HTML documentation for a list of all available TDLib methods and classes. The JSON representation of TDLib API objects is straightforward: all API objects are represented as JSON objects with the same keys as the API object field names in the td_api.tl scheme. Note that in the automatically generated C++ documentation all fields have an additional terminating underscore which shouldn't be used in the JSON interface. The object type name is stored in the special field '@type' which is optional in places where type is uniquely determined by the context. Fields of Bool type are stored as Boolean, fields of int32, int53, and double types are stored as Number, fields of int64 and string types are stored as String, fields of bytes type are base64 encoded and then stored as String, fields of array type are stored as Array. You can also add the field '@extra' to any query to TDLib and the response will contain the field '@extra' with exactly the same value.
As usual, add npm tdweb package into your project:
npm install tdweb
All files will be installed into
node_modules/tdweb/dist/ folder. For now, it is your responsibility to make
those files loadable from your server. For example, telegram-react
manually copies these files into the
public folder. If you know how to avoid this problem, please tell us.
