The old v5 API gives me a lot of information about a channel in 1 request: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels/#get-channel
I basically want to this information or even better all this information: https://wind-bow.glitch.me/twitch-api/channels/lirik with the new API and as less requests as possible.
I can’t find the get-channel endpoint in the new API. Can you help me?
In the new API all “channels” are “users”
For user information
For stream information
Thanks! But I need more than one call to retrieve all the information or can i somehow combine them? Why did the strip the API like that?
I imagine computationally, the amount of CPU time for two API requests, the same as the “old” one API request.
Additionally, since a “users data” changes less often, it makes more sense to fetch the user data once per 24 hours and the streams more often, as a stream will change more often, than a users data will.
So overall, this reduces the overall bandwidth and data transmitted.
