This is a simple Telegram bot, written in Go, that is able to check a JSON Feed for updates and sends the latest article to a Telegram channel.
You should configure this bot to run behind a reverse proxy. It is listening to port 8080 by default. It is recommended to use Docker to run this bot. That let's your remap the port, easily set environment variables etc.
A recheck of the JSON Feed is triggered when the path
/hook is called using a HTTP POST request.
Some environment variables are required:
LAST_ARTICLE_FILE: file path to the file where the URL of the last sent article should be saved
FEED: URL to the JSON Feed
BOT_TOKEN: The token for the Telegram bot
CHANNEL: The channel or user ID to which notifications should be send
