digitalmars.D.announce - tg.d - Telegram Bot API client implementation for D v0.0.1 is released

Greetings, I am glad to announce that tg.d is finally released.

Telegram Bot API is an extremely flexible and robust platform 
which can be used to build bots that interact with users 
utilizing fast instant messaging application on your smartphone 
and PC. All data is synchronized across all devices, making it 
easy to switch between them.

Tg.d is a fork of project telega. There are some missing features 
(like webhooks and file uploading) but it is ready to be used in 
hobby projects.

Read "Introduction to bots" which explains what bots are and what 
they're good at.
After you create a new bot with the help of the BotFather you can 
use token to run examples:

```
git clone https://gitlab.com/ohboi/tg.d.git -b v0.0.1
cd tg.d
dub examples/echo.d -- --token=<TOKEN>
```

This will start a bot which will send your messages back.
