            The solution is very simple. In anonimous poll's you can't catch answers. So you should add one flag:



            Telegram bot logs Error code 409 even though there is single instance running
            Asked 2022-Mar-18 at 23:34

            I have deployed my Telegram bot on Heroku written in Python (PyTelegramBotAPI) before and it was working without any issue. Today I tried to migrate it to I stopped my Dyno and deployed it on Render and it logs below error. I tried deleting the Dyno completely and render still logs the same error. Finally I tried revoking the bot key but the issue is still the same. I'm certain I don't run any extra instance of the bot. The weird part is the bot still responds for a little time after all the instances are stopped or deleted. Finally I deployed it again on Heroku and it's working just fine. How can I fix that?





            Answered 2022-Mar-18 at 23:34

            Running into the same issue here. Looks like an incarnation of Heroku's "preboot" feature, more details here:

            Regex PyTelegramBotApi float int type messages
            Asked 2022-Mar-13 at 14:23

            I am creating a bot using the PyTelegramBotApi library. When I ask the user to enter a parameter, my goal is to accept if he only sends a message of type int or float, otherwise ask him to re-enter. When I use the code below, the bot receives and stores the int message sent by the user, but asks for re-entry if a float type message is entered.



            Answered 2022-Mar-13 at 05:55
            1. You have the order of your arguments wrong, re.match() expects the pattern first and then text.

            2. re.match() will be True if the pattern is anywhere in the string if the string starts with the pattern. So with your current logic something like "ABC0.123XYZ" "0.123XYZ" would return True and then fail to get parsed.

            3. You should not do an extra check with isdigit, just include that case (optional . in the number) in your pattern when you are doing regex anyway.

            4. Right now you limit float numbers to one digit after the ., is that really what you want? Reject anything with 2 or more decimal places?


            Since you did not really get an answer on how to make it work - you can easiely do this without regex:



            Heroku python app (telegram bot) crashes monthly with requests exception
            Asked 2022-Mar-01 at 13:14

            I have two telegram bots made with PyTelegramBotApi (not the best library, I know) deployed on Heroku. One big difference that matters: one is running with Threading to periodically send notifications to "subscribers" (around 20 people). And it crashes approximately every month with following exception trace in Heroku console:



            Answered 2022-Mar-01 at 13:12

            I have found a way to at least keep the bot working. Be careful: this may not fit your application (in your case restarting straight up after a specific exception may corrupt data or break something else). In main file, I made this construction, which basically restarts a bot after an unhandled exception, which would otherwise just stop the bot:

            open built-in function is for working with local files, not files accessible via HTTP. According to send_document docs 2nd argument might be

            an HTTP URL as a String for Telegram to get a file from the Internet

            so following should work

            telebot delete message pytelegrambotapi
            Asked 2022-Feb-07 at 16:37

            How can I delete the last N number of messages from any users. After writing the delete command, the bot must delete the latest messages by the given number. I could not find complete documentation on the pytelegrambotapi library in any way.



            Answered 2022-Feb-07 at 16:37

            In my experience you should save the message_id of the lasts N messagges and cycling with the delete_message function when you need to do it.

            Answered 2022-Feb-05 at 17:17

            My guess is that you used the tele_bot package, which is not the offical one thus probably bugged and not working. So your fix removed the bad package (pip3 uninstall...), and the following lines installed the aproporaite (offical) package.

            Assuming you uninstalled PyTelegramBotAPI, reinstalling should have bee sufficent. If you hadn't uninstalled it, updating (line 4) is a good idea.

            Side note: You supplied the tele_bot package with your private API keys, I haven't examined that package, but it could be malicous and stole you API token. So I would recommend invalidating the old API token and generating a new one.

            From 03/01/2021 worked without problems. Main task of this bot parse information from documents sent by users. It also handles some commands. All other types of data forward from the user to the developer.
