MadelineProto Example (now async for huge speed and parallelism!):

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API('session.madeline');

$Updates = $MadelineProto->channels->createChannel(['broadcast' => Bool, 'megagroup' => Bool, 'title' => 'string', 'about' => 'string', ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

Updates = channels.createChannel({broadcast=Bool, megagroup=Bool, title='string', about='string', })
