Telegram Mobile Protocol (MTProto) unofficial library in pure javascript on the Node.js platform

About MTProto..

MTProto is the Telegram Messenger protocol "designed for access to a server API from applications running on mobile devices".

The Mobile Protocol is subdivided into three components (from the official site):

  • High-level component (API query language): defines the method whereby API queries and responses are converted to binary messages.

  • Cryptographic (authorization) layer: defines the method by which messages are encrypted prior to being transmitted through the transport protocol.

  • Transport component: defines the method for the client and the server to transmit messages over some other existing network protocol (such as, http, https, tcp, udp).

telegram-mt-node in short..

The telegram-mt-node library implements the Mobile Protocol and provides the following features:

  • Both TCP and HTTP connections implemented in the transport layer

  • A cipher implementation for AES and RSA encryption in the security layer

  • Both plain-text and encrypted message to communicate data with the server

  • Diffie-Hellman key exchange supported by the prime factorization function implemented in the security layer

  • MTProto TL-Schema compilation as javascript classes and functions via @goodmind/telegram-tl-node dependency

@goodmind/telegram.link main project depends by this library.
