• Hello,

    as I am currently out of pushes on pushbullet .. I tried to implement Telegram-API with Telegram-Bot via python and scripting.

    • Step 1: Download jython-standalone from http://www.jython.org/downloads.html
    • Step 2: Place under /home/pi/mycontroller/lib/jython-standalone-2.7.0.jar
    • Step 3: Install "pip install python-telegram-bot" on your raspberrypi
    • Step 4: Sign up on Telegram (Android)
    • Step 5: Register your bot with Botfather (https://core.telegram.org/bots#)
    • Step 6: After registering with Botfather you get an API-Key (further here described as APIKEY)
    • Step 7: Place a file telegram_min.py anywhere (https://pastebin.com/v6gZJqEp) and replace APIKEY
    • Step 8: Go to the chat_id bot mentioned here (https://stackoverflow.com/a/37396871). You need the CHAT_ID for your account.
    • Step 9: Create a mycontroller-python-script under "Utilitys->Script". As I have no idea how to install python-telegram-bot with jython I got a workaround.
    import commands
    commands.getstatusoutput('/usr/bin/python /home/pi/mqtt/telegram_min.py -i **CHAT_ID** -m '+message+'Test')
    commands = None

    This is how far I got .. if I manually run the script manually with the binding:


    I get following message on my Telegram Desktop client:


    This is good so far!!!

    But now I need your help @jkandasa

    What I want to do ..

    • Depending on a sensor value a rule should be triggered
    • The rule will trigger an operation

    My problem is now, that I only can define a script-binding on the operation that is no related to the rule-paraeters.


    In the script or binding I would like to use


    Currently I dont know how to use them in jython-script .. any idea?

    I tried to use notification-varaible but it does not work:

    2017-10-20 23:34:28,096 ERROR [Thread-6] [org.mycontroller.standalone.operation.model.OperationExecuteScript:133] Exception on McScript(engineName=null, mimeType=null, extension=py, name=/home/pi/mycontroller/conf/resources/scripts/operations/telegram_bot.py, canonicalPath=null, type=OPERATION, size=0, lastModified=0, bindings={message=Test})
    javax.script.ScriptException: NameError: name 'notification' is not defined in <script> at line number 2

    I would like to use this on binding:


  • I have currently doployed a workaround:

    • For every sensor there is a rule to fire when an event occurs
    • For every rule there is one operation
    • Each operation calls the same script with different Script bindings

    There are still several timers to enable/disable the operation(s)

    Latest telegram_min.py (https://pastebin.com/2BfqnmU3)
    Latest telegrom_bot.py (scriopt for mycontroller):

    import commands
    if picture is not None:
       commands.getstatusoutput('/usr/bin/python /home/pi/mqtt/telegram_min.py -i CHAT_ID -m "' + message + ' " -p "' + picture + '" ' )
       commands = None
       commands.getstatusoutput('/usr/bin/python /home/pi/mqtt/telegram_min.py -i CHAT_ID  -m "' + message + '" ')
       commands = None

    With this solution I am able to send pictures too!
