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

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('https://phar.madelineproto.xyz/madeline.php', 'madeline.php');
}
include 'madeline.php';

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

// PHP 8+ syntax, use an array on PHP 7.
$MessageMedia = $MadelineProto->messages->getWebPagePreview(message: 'string', entities: [MessageEntity, MessageEntity], parse_mode: 'string', );

Return value

If the length of the provided message is bigger than 4096, the message will be split in chunks and the method will be called multiple times, with the same parameters (except for the message), and an array of MessageMedia will be returned instead.

Usage of parseMode:

Set parseMode to html to enable HTML parsing of the message.

Set parseMode to Markdown to enable markown AND html parsing of the message.
