Hey guys, I want to build a request, where I can look if a special user is following my channel.
I found this url " https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users?login=" + username. But I need an oauth and a ClientID. I found the client ID on dev.twitch, but where do I get the oauth key. I found something in the docs, but I dont get it.
Maybe you have any tips.
The follows API will let you check if user X is following user Y
An oAuth token is generated using the client ID and secret.
SInce Get User Follows doesn’t need a scope then any kind of oAuth token works
So you could use a client credentials token
The authentication docs are here for that Getting OAuth Access Tokens | Twitch Developers
Thank you that helps me a lot. How do I find out the to_id?
if you want to see if
barrycarlyon is following
cohhcarnage aka the
viewer and the
from_id is the user ID of
barrycarlyon - the viewer -
to_id is the user ID of
cohhcarnage - the streaner -
UserID’s fro usernames can be obtained from the Get Users API - Reference | Twitch Developers
