dspc_bot_ctrl is a utility controller for a Telegram bot that can control your desktop actions.
It provides a set of commands that, when triggered can act on those commands accordingly. These commands are sent by the user through the telegram bot they will create (through @BotFather) for remotely controlling the desktop.
Why should I use this?
Want to remote control your desktop for achieving tasks and monitoring processes but don't want to incur higher processing overhead by using general software applications for remote control and desktop sharing? This utility can help you with that. Since this runs on cmd and uses the win32 dlls through win32 utilities for python, the processing overhead with respect to other scripts and actions you want to overlook remotely is low.

$ pip install dspc_bot_ctrl
Since the controller relies on Telegram and its messaging ecosystem to communicate and get commands from user, the Telegram Android app must be installed in your android device.
In order to create a bot for yourself that responds to your message, create your bot using @BotFather. Contact BotFather throught the Telegram Android App and type in /newbot. Follow the instructions and note the HTTP API token it provides and it is used to initialize the bot in first run.
Importing Bot Class
from dspc_bot_ctrl.dspc_bot import DSPCBOT
Initializing and Deploying The Bot
If you are running the controller for the first time, it would ask for the HTTP API token that you have noted down when you created the bot. Once you feed in the token, it would be saved and subsequent runs would not need the token. If you want to revoke the saved token for a new bot, type in 'revoke' in the password field.
For every run, the controller would ask you for a password. Once the password is inputed, the controller would look out for a identification message from you. Find the bot by the name you have provided for the bot through BotFather and send message 'identify_me <password>' to the bot through the Telegram Client. Once the controller receives the identification message with the correct password, It will start polling for messages and you can use the bot as you please.
