  1. Now that Twitch is utilizing IGDB instead of Giantbomb.

    Please add the IGDB Game ID to the Helix Fetch Game endpoint.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-games
    https://api-docs.igdb.com/#game

    Then we can easily lookup a game on Twitch with the game on IGDB without getting lost in search/selecting the wrong one with a similar name

  3. First of all, thank you for providing developers with valuable tools and apis for twitch. I greatly appreciate the code samples that were provided, however I noticed that there was only a code sample for the authorization code flow. I feel that developers would greatly benefit from examples of how best to work with the implicit code flow. I know this has been an issue for me. For example, if you create an electron application with a modern javascript framework that manages routing, the redirect part of code flow becomes a sticking point. Most of them will use localhost for…

  4. It was very useful for my little game but I would have liked a vip tag.
    Except that it has served me perfectly. Thank you very much.

  5. I know this has it's own endpoint but would be nice to have them in once place

  6. So a developer can ask the api for just bits reward tier emotes or the "regular" sub emotes

    This applies to both

    • Get Channel Emotes
    • Get Emote Set

  7. At the moment, only the broadcaster is allowed to use the polls and predictions endpoints because the broadcaster id must match the OAuth token. I think that allowing moderators of the specific channel should also be able to use these endpoints. This would be really helpful for Chatterino for example. In order for moderators to create polls or predictions, they have to go to the actual chat on the website to type in /prediction or /poll. If moderators were able to access the endpoint, Chatterino could easily add a command to bring up a window to create a poll or…

  8. Events endpoints like https://api.twitch.tv/helix/moderation/banned/events and https://api.twitch.tv/helix/moderation/moderators/events only provide a short history of events.

    This makes it difficult when a 3rd party dev takes on a new client to collect historical data from before they started offering services to the new client. Answering a question like when did I mod this mod? Is not something that can be answered without historical data.

    Allowing a request for as much historical data as available (hopefully more then the current amount provided by the endpoints) or requesting for a specific time amount would allow new 3rd party dev and single custom one off developers…

  9. You provide information on how to remove a token, how to refresh a token, and how to define scopes for tokens, but you don't actually have any information on how to request a token, nor any sample code on that or applying token scopes. Given that this step is fundamental to any interaction with the Twitch API, this seems like a fairly major omission.

  10. CRUD for bet as streamer
    CRUD for bet as viewer

    As streamer:

    • Being able to start/cancel a bet from endpoint
    • Being able to state who won from endpoint
    • Maybe get stats about the bet (invested coins, status, nb of participant, ...) (as Events or/and as HTTP API)

    As viewer:
    - Receive an Event when there is a new bet
    - Get bet info using endpoint (remaining time, title, bet A, bet B, nb of people who bet)
    - Place a bet using endpoint
    - Event win or lose

  11. There does not seem be an equivalent for v5's chat endpoints. In particular, there does not appear to be an endpoint for getting all emoticons such as https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/chat/emoticons.

  12. Honestly this whole documentation is a bit sloppy. There should be clearer examples of using the APIs as I had to go Googling how the authentication actually works as the headers seem to be different than this suggests.

  13. Brief description

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/getting-tokens-oauth

    When you get a token, it returns token_type as bearer

    If you take this value as is and call helix endpoints it doesn't work as helix only accepts Bearer

    How to reproduce

    Generate a token
    Construct a header using the returned data by concatenating elements from the returned JSON
    `Authorization: ' . tokentype . ' ' . accesstoken

    Call a helix endpoint
    Get a 401
    Expected behavior

    Twitch accepts Bearer and bearer as valid

    or

    returns Bearer as the token type when fetching a token.

    Additional context or questions

    I'm not sure what the correct…

  14. The current APIs max out at 100 items per page, and while this is fine for most channels, there are some where you end up having to paginate for a long time to reach the end of the list.

    Given there is rate limiting in place, would it be possible to make an endpoint (or use the current endpoints and add an "all" query parameter) with a high rate-limit cost that allows for the bulk fetching of this information?

  16. This guide descibes how Partners can assign someone a lifetime sub that doesn't count to rev of points

    https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/lifetime-subscriber-guide-for-partners

    The API doesn't present any information as to who is a lifetime sub or not.
    So we cannot guestimate sub points (or revenue if we are building revenue reporting tools for streamers we work with) from the API as we don't know who is a lifetime sub or not.

    Please provide an API endpoint that lists these subs, which would be "cheaper" than a boolean flag added to the subscribers endpoint

  17. The chat_moderator_actions topic in the PubSub documentation appears to only work with a broadcaster OAuth token. This prevents third-party modding tools that don't use some kind of centralized system from accessing information that is vital for effective modding (such as which mod performed an action, actions that aren't otherwise visible like unbans and viewing and approving messages filtered by AutoMod).

    With a centralized system the broadcaster could provide a token somehow that the moderators don't need to have access to directly, however with purely clientside tools this is not feasible. I'm also not sure why moderators should not have access…

  18. With the helix oAuth requirements

    It is often a problem for the less experienced developer to get started, as they don't understand certain rules and limitations around the API.

    The less experienced developer may then choose to generate and leak their client secret, or app access tokens on their "front end only" websites in error.

    So I propose that if the token is identified as App Access/Client Credentials, Twitch adds "CORS Headers" to block the request

    Consider also CORS headers to the token fetching endpoints for App Access generation as well?

  19. When creating a clip via the Create Clip API, it is VERY limited compared to the (not for public use) GraphQL interface. Requesting that the following enhancements be made to the Create Clip API so that 3rd party apps can leverage them:
    1) Add ability to specify the clip start time (number of seconds from when the broadcast started). Reason: when deciding when to create a clip, apps may want to look back 10-15 seconds instead of generating the clip starting from when the API is called.
    2) Add ability to specify the clip title. Reason: currently, the API defaults…

  20. Add the functionality to sort Channel Points redemptions into categories (and ofc make this settabel via the API).

    It gets confusing and hard to find the redemption you're looking for with the current (amount of points based) sorting when you have one or more applications with multiple redemptions each and maybe then even some random single ones as well.
