# Telegram

composer require socialiteproviders/telegram

# Installation & Basic Usage

Please see the Base Installation Guide (opens new window), then follow the provider specific instructions below.

# Configuration

First of all, you must create a bot by contacting @BotFather (opens new window) (https://core.telegram.org/bots#6-botfather)

Don't forget to set your website URL using /setdomain

Then, you need to add your bot's configuration to config/services.php. The bot username is required, client_id must be null. The provider will also ask permission for the bot to write to the user.

'telegram' => [
    'bot' => env('TELEGRAM_BOT_NAME'),  // The bot's username
    'client_id' => null,
    'client_secret' => env('TELEGRAM_TOKEN'),
    'redirect' => env('TELEGRAM_REDIRECT_URI'),

# Add provider event listener

Configure the package's listener to listen for SocialiteWasCalled events.

Add the event to your listen[] array in app/Providers/EventServiceProvider. See the Base Installation Guide (opens new window) for detailed instructions.

protected $listen = [
    \SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled::class => [
        // ... other providers

# Usage

You should now be able to use the provider like you would regularly use Socialite (assuming you have the facade installed):

return Socialite::driver('telegram')->redirect();

You can add the login button to your page, anywhere you want with this snippet:

{!! Socialite::driver('telegram')->getButton() !!}
