$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API();
if (isset($number)) { // Login as a user
    $sentCode = $MadelineProto->phone_login($number);
    echo 'Enter the code you received: ';

Or, if you’re using the PWRTelegram HTTP API:

As a user:



chat_id - Json encoded InputPeer

user_id - Json encoded InputUser

fwd_limit - Json encoded int

Or, if you’re into Lua:

Updates = messages.addChatUser({chat_id=InputPeer, user_id=InputUser, fwd_limit=int, })
