Simple cli tool to send stdin to any Telegram chat, through a bot. It’s a bit like
tee, but for telegram.
First, install the tool with
go install cj.rs/telegram-tee@latest
Then, you need to control a bot. Set the environment variable
the token of the bot that will write stdin to a chat for you. You may want to create a new bot or use an existing one.
Then, you need to get the chat ID of the conversation to which you want to send stdin. Just run
and write with Telegram to your bot. It will reply with the current chatID.
You can then do
echo Hi | telegram-tee <chatID>
You can even send to several chatID at the same time.
- Make stdout usable like tee
