  1. There needs to be an API that allows for the return of channal analytics.
    This would have the reqiured query parameters of: broadcaster_id

    Only stating the broadcaster_id could return the following results:
    - Average viewers
    - Total views
    - Average new followers per stream
    - Total followers
    - Average subscribers per stream
    - Total subscribers
    - Average minutes watched per stream
    - Total minutes watched

    It could also return:
    - Best performing catagories
    - Best performing tags

    There would idealy also be some optional query parameters: start-date, end-date, time.

    Adding the optional query parameters would also add the result:
    -…

  2. Add an endpoint the returns a list of the latest cheers to a channel. The list should include: username, bits, message and date-time.

  3. Similar to the Bits Leaderboard, please add a gifted subs leaderboard API, so we can see everyone who has gifted a sub in the channel.

  5. I am currently developing a native Android application for Twitch and want to make use of the OAuth2.0 API. Since the Twitch Authorization Server doesn't seem to support the PKCE (Proof Key for Code Exchange), i will have to put my client secret into my native application, which isn't secure at all, because the app can easily be decompiled.

    This is a requirement for all native apps, as stated by the IETF in RFC 7636 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7636).

    I hope to see this implemented soon, because this poses a huge security risk for all native apps and their developers.

  6. In Twitch v5, the Get User Subscription endpoint contained a created_at and a streak for the current user subscription for a broadcaster.

    Helix, lacks this functionality, and thus it is impossible to determine how long someone has been subscribed for, and also impossible to determine if they've renewed their subscription.

    These fields are imperative to some applications, especially ones that want to externally reward members monthly for each month they've subscribed. Please return these fields to the endpoint!

  7. It shouldn't be required for manage roles such as mod/vip via the chat

    It shouldn't be required to manage editor/mod/vip via the roles manager

    it would be useful for automation/third party management to be able to manage roles via the API

  8. Right now there is no official way (there is an undocumented endpoint) to determine whether a stream is sub only or not. Subscriber only status prohibits a lot of people from interacting with the stream, so it'd make sense for applications to be aware of such a state.

  9. Currently twitch embed does not support vod chat and neither does the helix api.

    Twitch only allows vod chat to be seen directly on the website.

    This data could be used in a great number of ways by third-parties particularly video editors.

    Please add a way to retrieve chat for vods

    No? ok. Sadge

  11. Currently, it is easy to tell if a user that sent a message in a streamer’s channel is a subscriber, VIP, or moderator of that channel. However, there is no way to tell if that user is a follower of the channel.

    With the rise of hate raids and malicious messages, I want to ensure that if a streamer is using a chat box overlay, that they have the option to only let messages from followers appear. Malicious users usually don’t follow the channel, and so this will prevent their messages from appearing on stream.

    I do understand that this…

  12. Hey. I know that people are requesting API for Channel Points. But I came up with better and easier idea.

    When streamer creates new reward in dashboard, there should be option to "run a link" in background after reward is redeemed. This type of button will trigger bot with GET-request and bot will run specific action.

    Why I think this approach is better than API:
    1. No API on Twitch side, obviosly.
    2. Bots won't be abble to control Channel Points directly.
    3. This will work with any bot who will support this kind of triggers.
    4. Easier to use…

  14. It's possible for a third-party app to query a user's followed channels, but not followed categories. This is a very useful tool for creating alternate views to a follow list

    Use-case: Raid recommendation tool - it compares channel stats to your own and recommends those that are most similar, and also those you haven't recently raided. To do this, it needs to start with a list of everyone you follow who's live, and then does further research.

  15. Currently the rate limit headers "ratelimit-reset", "ratelimit-remaining" and "ratelimit-limit" are not accessible on browser / cors requests due to browser restrictions.
    I request that Twitch adds the "Access-Control-Expose-Headers" header on the helix endpoints so that tools running in a browser can follow the rate limits without guessing if they are still within the limits or having to watch for 429 HTTP codes.

  16. An update on Jan 31, 2019 gave channel moderators the ability to add comments to users within chat. There is currently no way to use the API to be able to set or retrieve comments for users in chat.

    This should be available to the broadcaster and all moderators within a channel.

    To add a mod comment to a user, the endpoint could take the following data as inputs:
    - User: {user's name}
    - Moderator: {mod's name}
    - Broadcaster: {broadcaster's name}
    - Comment: {comment to be applied}

    On success, this would return the following:
    - Success: {true}
    - date: {date}…

  17. The problem occurred after the release of an extension game i developed, where the viewers could spend channel points to obtain in-game currency. With over 6000 viewers, the chat became impossible to moderate as there were so many messages per second. This very simple option would greatly relieve the chat in such situations.

    E.g.: "is_highlighted" (defaults to true)

  18. Please provide a way for third party developers to obtain currently available songs and meta data related to those songs.

    Both in a "get all songs" method and "search for songs"

    Search should be

    • free text (like game/category search)
    • song ID (to get specific song data)
    • artist ID (to get songs by an artist)
    • album ID (to get songs on an album)
    • by category/genre (to get say only Dance music or chill out music)

  19. In the new badge-related endpoints, badge objects in returned sets contain only their IDs and URLs, which compared to the only existing alternative (undocumented badges.twitch.tv endpoint announced in twitchdev forums[1]) isn't enough for things like custom chat clients that are very popular among many Twitch users.
    Ever since that undocumented endpoint came to existence, we've been using it in our chat client and would at least need "description" and "title" properties that are present in badges.twitch.tv to display information about badges properly and replicate webchat's behavior. I believe both APIs use the same internal data (at least for Global Badges)…

  20. 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
