Getting realtime data, like new followers


I’m new to using the Twitch API and API’s in general. In the API I saw possibilities for getting a channel followers count, but my question is is there also a way to get realtime new followers? Or do I need something like NodeJS with the current API request?

Thanks in advanced,

Follows are not a pubsub topic, at least not yet. Subscribers are, though.

In Helix there are webhooks planned to do this.

Ok and Helix is?

Helix is the new API It will replace Kraken v5 in the future. It’s still in progress. Check out the roadmap:
