  1. 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…

  2. As it stands currently today, whether you are building a large scale bot to connect to multiple channels, that is always on (think Streamlabs, StreamElements, etc), or a small bot specific for your channel, or perhaps somewhere in between, the only supported way to connect is via the channel name, which is tied directly to the Twitch username.

    The problem that is faced is when one of those connected channel's broadcaster decide to change their username, thus changing the channel name as well, since now what the bot is listening for data on is non-existent. The way this is managed…

  3. 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…

  4. This is great documentation. I'm asking if there will ever be a pubsub topic for sharing real-time viewercounts? I've noticed the get channel endpoint only updates every 15 minutes.

  5. If you have a not very tall browser.
    And you request, a fair chunk of the oAuth scopes.

    When you redirect the user to Twitch.

    The Accept/Deny link page auto jumps down to the bottom of the page.

    This means the first few/most "dangerous" scopes as well as the application name/logo and whom you are logged in as are above the fold of the page.

    Basically "suggesting" to the user not to read all the scopes and just go accept/deny.

    The auto jump to bottom of the page should be removed.

  8. 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

  9. Similar to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213/suggestions/38203978

    But include the date/time of when the ban record is for.

    So for example

    {
    "user_id": "SomeID",
    "user_login": "SOMElogin",
    "user_name": "SOMEdisplay",
    "expires_at": "",
    "reason": "",
    "moderator_id": "15185913",
    "moderator_login": "barrycarlyon",
    "moderator_name": "BarryCarlyon"
    }
    

    I have no idea when this ban happened.

    UseCase: For considering unbans when reviewing data in an external tool, the date/time of the ban will be considered to determine if the user who is banned has "served" their time or not

  10. 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…

  11. The Create Poll endpoint has optional query parameters to allow additional votes using either bits or channel points.

    However, it doesn't actually allow multiple votes. This can be seen in the pubsub response which explictly states that "multi_choice" (property indicating whether additional votes are allowed) is not enabled.

    When creating a poll through the web interface, it works just fine as it is created through the GQL and not the API. The GQL message also has an additional property to explicitly allow additional votes, on top of the properties that are used to either allow additional votes by bits and/or…

  12. Endpoint to check if userID has a known bot or verified bot flag.

    Which currently exists as a undocumented v5/kraken endpoint.

    usercase: what rate limit does my bot have? I can check if my bot has mod but I can't check if my bot has verified bot.

  13. The v5 GetUserEmotes does not include bit emotes, follower emotes or animated emotes. This should be updated. Or a new endpoint should be added to Helix to get this information.

  14. Add a occured_at timestamp that tells you when the content in the clip was actually streamed.

    Clips API objects have a created_at timestamp which is when the user made the clip but this can be months or years off from when the content in a clip actually happened if a clip was made from a VOD which makes created_at useless for a lot of use cases.

    Even for clips from livestreams this is an issue as users can cut clips from a 2 minute (90 secs?) window so the actual content of two clips with the exact same created_at timestamps…

  15. Would be nice to if the Twitch service over at IFTTT had the channel title as an ingredient to be used.

    This would enable a huge range of services to utilize the channel title for marketing purposes.

    Zapier has this, but not IFTTT.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
