Telegram::GroupScraper - Telegram public groups data scraper

Dec 16, 2019
  • This scraper collects message data from public groups in Telegram.
    Its logic of work differs from other scrapers, because it automatically adds queries to iterate over all the messages in the group. Because of this, this scraper cannot be used together with any others in the same task.
