Base handler is generic abstract class and should be used in all other class-based handlers.

Import: from aiogram.handler import BaseHandler

By default you will need to override only method async def handle(self) -> Any: ...

This class is also have an default initializer and you don’t need to change it. Initializer accepts current event and all contextual data and which can be accessed from the handler through attributes: event: TelegramEvent and data: Dict[Any, str]

If instance of the bot is specified in context data or current context it can be accessed through bot class attribute.


class MyHandler(BaseHandler[Message]):
    async def handle(self) -> Any:
         await self.event.answer("Hello!")
