After using Telegram for years in order to receive notifications from my servers, I've deployed my own lightweight server (prosody).
I also rewrote my Telegram bot, intended to execute remote queries/commands, using xmpppy Python package.
Extra-bonus: a private and secure (end-to-end encrypted) messenger for family usage.

@fabiux I too used telegram for this type of notification, but set up my own rocket chat and have dedicated private channels for those notifications now. Would love to see a write up of your setup.

@MickInTX After
apt install prosody
my server was up and running with standard security settings.
I only set the configuration for Let'sEncrypt use by following this guide: prosody.im/doc/letsencrypt
Then I added a couple of users with prosodyctl and I was done.
