Telegram Repeater

The bot forwards your messages to another group.


  • Support rich text messages.
  • Support media (except voice messages).
  • Reply function available.
  • Anonymity: Protect the identity of the user.
  • Authorised users in this group can manage the target group function, such as /ban, /del, /grant, /kick, etc.
  • Use PostgreSQL engine to mark the time, message ID and user ID.
  • When the bot is mentioned in the target group, the user ID specified in the config file will also be mentioned in this group.
  • Once promoted to admin, the bot can add new admins.
  • Full support for dynamic invitation links.
  • Full support for the ticket system.

Operating Environment

Python 3.9 and above is required

The following libraries are required:

  • pyrogram (~=1.1.x)
  • asyncpg
  • aioredis


  • If you don’t have api_id and api_hash, obtain them from telegram
  • Prepare two accounts, an ordinary one and a bot one.
  • The bot account should be in the target group and the ordinary account should have permission to delete messages.
  • Copy config.ini.default to config.ini.
  • Parse your own api_key and api_hash in config.ini.
  • Parse your bot api_token in api_key field.
  • Parse the target group id in config.ini.
  • Parse the another group id in config.ini.
  • If you use your own account, parse your id in owner field.
  • Replace replace_to_id field with the user ID that the bot will be replaced with.
  • Import the preset database file into PostgreSQL database

Additional settings for the ticket system

  • Parse the bot’s token in the custom_api_key field of the configuration file.
  • Parse the group ID of the ticket system in config.ini. (The group ID of the ticket system should be different from the target group.)


  • Use python3 or other command lines to run the program.
  • Log in using the account you set in the owner field.
  • If you want to authorize a certain user, you should invite the user to this group first, then use /auth.
  • To turn off the repeater, send /off to the target group, vice versa.
