Get alerted when your witness node is down : Telegram bot

in #witness-category5 years ago (edited)

Hi guys

I am beta-testing a Telegram bot (a port of the great work of spartako) which can alert you when your witness node is down. Besides monitoring your witness node's status, the bot is able to provide some basic status information of the STEEM network.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Download Telegram desktop app or mobile app, or use its web version and create a telegram account (if you do not already have one)

  1. Join the STEEM Telegram channel using this invite link -

  2. Ask the people in this Telegram channel for help or PM @bitcube in Telegram

If you like what I am doing, please vote for witness bitcube

Your support for witness bitcube would be greatly appreciated!


Very nice thing! A must have for good witnesses!

Added a new function "/newkey" that provides a new private-public key pair. This is in support of dele-puppy's register bot. It saves a new user from having the need to use a Bitshares wallet.

Nice job bitcube.

I'm not sure the notification is working right now though. I dropped a block while updating earlier and got no notification.

Thanks for your support!

The bot was working well before I called off for the night. The witness-to-alert-list was there but turned empty when I woke up. I will need to check it.

The bot is rebooted and it is working fine now.

You can now be alerted by Telegram when there is a new STEEM version release. I have added new functions to check and monitor github for the latest tagged release. Please check out STEEM Telegram bot functions :

/followversionStart getting notices
/stopfollowversionStop getting notices
/versionShow latest version

Major bug fixed. Bug was caused by a misconstructed github polling code. It crashed the wallet frequently.

Link on channel is broken :(
