I found it amazing :star_struck:, such rich material that helps us learn a lot. I’m in the process of creating something similar, but for WhatsApp itself

Super cool, I have been meaning to explore this area and this definitely helps. Will share feedback if I make something, maybe a weekend project :smiling_imp:

How do i add the chat history to this telegram flow? As of now the chatbot only replies to the last message sent and doesn´t consider the messages before

Thanks for your question! Generally, you will need to have some kind of storage where you add all user messages and bot’s replies. It is also important to keep user’s Telegram ID so that each user has its own conversation with the bot.

An easy solution would be NocoDB, Baserow (if we speak about open-source tools). Airtable is also fine for super-small bots. Alternatively you can create a proper SQL database. In all cases n8n has built-in nodes for working with NocoDB, Baserow, Airtable and PostgreSQL / MySQL.

The trickiest part is to prepare a JSON with message history for the GPT API. You’ll probably need to use a Code node to prepare a valid array (check the red box):


Finally, an HTTP Request node is needed, because the default OpenAI node doesn’t support dynamic arrays. But this is rather easy, because OpenAI credentials can be re-used in the HTTP Request node.
