  1. Having written one and a half client libraries for IRC now, I wish Twitch Chat was exposed over a more consistent protocol.

    • Allow read-only access to chat messages (and other related live data and events) via PubSub, with clean re-designed JSON Chat message payloads
    • No longer identify channels and users by their login name, use user IDs for all purposes
    • Send messages via an API call

    Most importantly, I would expect a redesigned API to think of edge-cases in a better way than IRC currently does. For example, what happens on IRC if a channel gets suspended, or a channel…

  2. We currently have API's to

    • Upload Video
    • Collect videos into categorys
    • Update Stream title

    We do not have any API's to manage

    • Contents of a ReRun Playlist
    • Start a ReRun
    • Stop a ReRun

    I'd like those API's please.

  3. Being able to order some of the Helix endpoints by date would be useful

    Follower for example would need in some cases 11k+ calls to the follower endpoint to just get the 100 followers who had followed for the longest time.

    This would also be good in the subscription endpoint if cumulative and streak get put into the Helix API

  4. 4 chat commands that would be great to have as API endpoints:

    /monitor USERNAME - Start monitoring a user's messages.
    /unmonitor USERNAME - Stop monitoring a user's messages.
    /restrict USERNAME - Start restricting a user's messages
    /unrestrict USERNAME - Stop restricting a user's messages

  5. It would be great if an authenticated user could look up their own list of subscriptions. Currently, we allow a broadcaster to look up their subscribers, which is channel -> users, but we do not have a way to look up users -> channel. The workaround today is to get all follows for a given authenticated user and then one-by-one look up if the authed user is subscribed to the followed channel.

  6. The API https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#check-automod-status

    Only lets you check automod for the channel.

    But it'll only do it to the value that the channel is set to

    Please allow the developer to test a given phrase at a different automod level to that that the channel is set to.

    Say the channel is set to level 1, I may want to test a paticular phrase or message about to be sent to an overlay or other property at level 3 or 4 instead for additional security/moderation beyond the level that chat is set to

  8. The new API endpoint 'Get User Follows'
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/users#get-user-follows

    Could include more data than what is currently provided.
    The legacy endpoint alternative offers a lot more but not all of this info is required by default.
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows

    My suggestion would be to at least provide the 'notifications' as well as the 'logo' info. To keep the requests at an optimal size by default, extra request parameters can be given such as:

    ?showLogo=true&showNotifications=true
    (which can default to false when not present)

    or

    ?verbose=true
    (which will provide an equivalent response to the legacy variant)

    The new endpoint should also only show this extra…

  11. It would be convenient to have the ability to query Bits transactions based on broadcaster id and user id. This is extremely helpful for Extensions with lots of transactions and saves on calls to the API that would be necessary for paginating until the desired transaction is found.

  12. Please add the ability to add/remove channel editors via the API. This was requested previously and marked completed but as far as I can tell it's not completed.

  13. Within EventSub's channel.follow event, it would be nice if there was info about if the follow originated from a Shoutout, and who the Shoutout was from.

    This would be useful for stream overlays, so the notification can say something like "[Viewer] followed, thanks to [Shoutout Origin]'s shoutout!"

  14. The new endpoint only allows the broadcaster to run commercials: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial

    The old endpoint also allowed users with the editor role to run commercials: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#start-channel-commercial

    I believe it is of value to allow access to editors as they used to. Editors should be trusted enough to choose their own tools to support the broadcaster, as has already been the case.

    Plus, if an editor's token can be used the editor's name will appear in the Activity Log on the Dashboard, rather than the broadcaster's name (assuming some sort of webpanel or bot has to be used, that the broadcaster has…

  15. Kraken equivalent[1] of Get Users Follows offers a way to sort query results by either creation date, last broadcast or login name. There's also a way to sort results in either ascending or descending order. Helix however doesn't offer any ways of sorting results of your query and results are always shown descending without giving you the option to get those in ascending order.
    In case you need to fetch exactly the first follow or get followers that have been live last, it becomes problematic if your query has lots of results - you'd need to paginate through all of…

  16. When a user connects to IRC, the USERSTATE command gives a emote-sets list, this does not contain unlocked bit emotes and I'm guessing it also doesn't include follower emotes and animated emotes. This should be fixed.

  17. Please can you provide an endpoint for get emote informations (like channel's id) with emote id(s), this can be usefull ?

  18. The follow notification flag is very helpful for loyalty bots to reward users for having notifications turned on. Notifications are a huge part of having users re-engage the broadcaster, and being able to reward that will bring more viewers to the stream. This was present in Kraken, but not in Helix.

  19. The Search Categories API doesn't seem to apply any "relevance" and direct matches are not often the first result.

    Please apply relevance sorting.

  20. It is useful to know if a streamer is on the home page.

    Both from a

    • internal (to the channel) statistical standpoint
    • as a moderation standpoint (we are on the home page we should up the follow limit to avoid trolls or lower the follow limit to let people chat).

    Please provide a way to

    • determine if a given channel is on the homepage (by region)
    • which slot it is in on that region

    And if possible

    provide this information has a webhook so we don't have to constantly poll for this information

    Additionally we may use it as a…
