TwitchTV Live status Javascript

Hello everybody,

A twitch admin redirected me to here. I need a Twitch Stream Status. This has to be in javascript.
Now people will ask why not PHP. It’s cause it’s for a google chrome extension.

google chrome extensions don’t cover PHP. But they cover javascript and HTML.
Can anybody help me with this, and maybe do something for a paid job.
I don’t have any experience with javascript and the Twitch API, thats why i can’t make it.

King Regards


Screen scraping will probably work.

If you’re willing to use node.js, you can send a cURL request to, parse the received JSON response, and check if the stream is null. If the stream isn’t live, it will be null.
