Node-red-contrib-chatbot > Alternative for RasperryPi

Is there a alternative solution for node-red-contrib-chatbot for a RasperryPi?

I want to use this chatbot to send an image via telegram....

The telegram nodes are excellent. The documentation is very good and it has tons of examples.

Thank you.

But what is wrong in this dialog? Error: staticPayload is not valid JSON


No idea. I dont use that set of nodes, I use node-red-contrib-telegrambot.

I thought this is part of node-red-contrib-telegrambot

What do you use to send an image?



I use node-red-contrib-telegrambot NOT node-red-contrib-telegrambot-home as like it looks like you have installed.



oh, sorry....and how do you configure which element for an image?

Start with the documentation i linked to - read the section "Sending photos, videos, ..." & try the example flow it includes.

Also, try the built in examples (ctrl+i)...
...there is one called SendPhoto...

then search this forum for "send image telegram" or "send picture telegram" - it has been covered a few times.

Then lastly, if you get stuck, pop back to the forum and post screenshots / flow / debug messages & people will be very glad to help you out.
