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

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

$Updates = $MadelineProto->messages->addChatUser(['chat_id' => InputPeer, 'user_id' => InputUser, 'fwd_limit' => int, ]);

PWRTelegram HTTP API example (NOT FOR MadelineProto):

As a user:



chat_id - Json encoded InputPeer

user_id - Json encoded InputUser
