  1. Allow developers to mock responses from all common integration points- subs, bits, follows, streams, etc, and allow users to mock users as well.

    This is useful for automated testing as well as building extensions.

  2. In the context of a Twitch Extension Overlay, the API needs a way to set key value pairs for viewers of a channel not using cookies. Chroma incognito blocks setting local storage and cookies. This would be used to store overlay settings like widget sizes and positions. That way when the page refreshes, the overlay elements would persist their placements. As the great BarryCarylon said "... like Redis for Twitch Extensions".

  3. The ability to specify an existing reward that exists as a basis on creating a new reward would be useful. (This would clone the image/other set parameters as well to the new reward)

    Use case:

    Channel points to pick a "team" the user would be in.
    Today there are three teams, so clone the pre set (disabled) one three times.
    Tomorrow there will be four, so clone four times.

    Image would be the same for all four.

  4. I would like to have a way to access a list of CHANNEL REWARDS available for a given channel. Without authentication would be nice, as anyone can see it in the website regardless.

    Another additional data provided if the API call is authenticated with the said channel, would be to see the status of the claims (Accepted, pending, refunded) so that the projects based on those can know if it was accepted or if it can be safely removed, in case of a refund.

  5. When PubSub returns rewards, it references channel_id whilst the Beta API Endpoints call it broadcaster_id.

    As a Developer, i prefer to be able to parse the same object from different sources in the same way. The discrepancy in naming prevents this / makes it slightly less performant as a distinction needs to be made.

  6. There's currently no way to unfollow a game from the API, in any of the existing APIs (helix, v5, v3). You can follow a game in v5, but not unfollow. Helix has nothing related to games/category. The website itself uses GQL.

  7. Old Twitch v5 API has an endpoint called "Get Top Clips" (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/clips#get-top-clips)

    I think the new API should also include this endpoint because the current way of getting the top clips is not exactly the most user friendly one. Currently if you want to get top clips, you need to get all clips using the "Get Clips" endpoint and then sort them out manually on our side. This works if you know exactly what you want. For example if you want top clips for a game you can use the game parameter.

    Unfortunately this isn't the most optimal…

  8. for /helix/streams can we add:
    profileimageurl from /helix/users
    and the game name (and potentially boxarturl) from /helix/games

    This is very basic info related to the stream and would be really nice to have available in a single call rather than 3 separate calls. This is especially important with bots that are trying to get the status of many streams in a short period quickly racking up api calls

  9. At the moment I have not found any way to get users app id (in my case Riot Account ID) which would allow me to authenticate user using Twitch API and at the same time make sure that user owns this Riot Account. Currently Riot does not support their own way of authentication for third-party developers, therefore Twitch would be great in this case if they shared app ids connected to the Twitch accounts.

  10. On helix we can only get people that are subscribed to a broadcaster, we can't get the broadcasters a user is subscribed to.

    So basically we've got V5 channels/<channel ID>/subscriptions.
    We are missing V5 <user ID>/subscriptions/<channel ID>.

  11. If you call GET https://api.twitch.tv/extensions/<client ID> you get a JSON back with the information about the extension. This is currently undocumented, but it would be a real useful took for discoverability and management, but being undocumented, it wouldn't be wise to use in a production environment. If this endpoint is planned to be kept, can it be added to the documentation for our use?

  12. For example, the YouTube Data API has the "fields parameter" to accomplish this, an example being: items(userid,username,title)

    https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/getting-started#fields

    Thanks!

  13. There are two scenarios when using this API which return a 500 from the server, but which should return either a 401 or 400 and a meaningful error code to help point out the issue:


    1. If you have set your productSKU's to 'live', but you're testing in 'Hosted testing', you receive this error. A response telling you that you cannot test SKUs in live mode when in hosted testing would be great.


    2. If your extension is live and you are trying to use bits on a channel which doesnt support it, you will receive a 500 from the server. I…

  14. It is quite hard to find clips using https://www.twitch.tv/manager/clips page to find clips and API does not offer nice solutions to make a 3rd party application to replace it.
    Here are some examples of API request parameters and some of their possible uses.

    curator_id:
    - clip creator can find all their own clips
    - broadcaster can find and delete all the clips from problematic viewer

    vod_id:
    - find clip compilation material for the stream

    created_at:
    - find clip compilation material for the date(and range)
    - find throwback clips - "last year this time we did this"

    broadcaster_id:
    - in combination…

  15. The endpoint returns 138 emotes only, but there are 236 global emotes as far as I know.
    The endpoint also returns a mixture of default and prime/turbo emoticons, it would be better if it returned all 3 types, or just the default robot emoticons since the other 2 are not really global.

  16. In the subscription fields definition, both cumulativemonths and streakmonths are listed as strings when they are very clearly integers.

    Further, it would help greatly with readability if the fields were listed in the order they appear in the supplied JSON snippets.

  17. All of the new emote and badge endpoints can be accessed using an App Access Token except for /chat/badges which needs a User OAuth Token.
    I don't see why this endpoint needs a user token since the badges can be viewed publicly on the subs page and It doesn't reveal any private info about a user.

  18. Given that EventSub only uses an App Access Token.

    It's possible for a developer to obtain user authentication and never store the token (and/of refresh token if one exists (ie implict has no refresh)) and only utilise EventSub.

    Please provide an endpoint

    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/scopes

    With a required parameter of:

    id - a userID

    That accepts ONLY An App Access Token

    That returns


    {
    data: [
    &#39;array&#39;,
    &#39;of&#39;
    &#39;scopes&#39;
    ]
    }

    To allow developers to check what scopes a user has authorised the developer/ClientID to utilise

  20. 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.
