Scraping Twitch Data
Twitch is emerging as a dominant live entertainment platform and offers an official development platform. Notably, Twitch offers an official data API for accessing data about thier platform we can then scrape.
You’ll need a Twitch API key, which you can get for free by logging into your Twitch developer dashboard and creating an app. From there you’ll need your
Client ID to use their endpoints.
Once you have your
Client ID, you can then browse the many Twitch Endpoints and pick the ones relevent to you. You’re free to follow their guidance from here and then write custom code to integrate with their API.
If you just need to collect data back from Twitch and would rather not write custom code, you can use the endpoints on this page to quickly access Twitch data and receive it back in CSV format instantly, without having to maintain any code.
