    Unlike bot API, TDLib doesn't have limitations


    TDLib isn't simple and requires a good understanding of Telegram

    TDLib a powerful library that allows building any type of app for Telegram. I use it to run Telepost ( TDLib is a fully functioning Telegram client that you can run in the cloud. I've connected its events via Google Pub/Sub to Google Cloud Functions, and it costs me pennies to run a service that processes hundreds of channels in real time.

With each news like that, I ensure more and more that it's a geek culture of a company, not "we-are-opensource-and-secure" marketing bullshit. Great products.

Love this! Timing is nearly perfect given Apple's recent decision to remove Telegram from the App Store [1]. Hopefully the official app gets reinstated very soon, but if not, I'm glad Telegram has provided these resources for building our own solution(s). [1]

There is no better way have to say: You have all our code, so go and use it, but you will never have our Vision! Telegram is the best messenger app on the market by far! And making their code public is both contributions to open source community and a gesture of self-confidence.
