So in the Kraken api, I would make a small thumbnail on my site with a background image taken from the “preview” in the streams response. I would then grab the “name” “logo” and “url” from the channel response and create a name plate in front of the previously grabbed preview image. All the data was within one object.
Essentially from what I’ve found so far is that I now need to make 2 requests to get the information Kraken gave me in one. Is it possible to join these two parameters so that I get all the information I need in on request?
You can’t just “join” different endpoints together.
You’ll need to make to make 2 requests, one to https://api.twitch.tv/helix/streams?user_login=... which will give you preview thumbnail, title, and other stream related data, and another to https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users?login=... for displayname, profile image, and other user related data.
