Twitchy is dead — long live Twitchy

Saturday, April 17, 2021

I recently wrote about wtwitch, a CLI-client for Twitch. It was my replacement client for Twitchy when it died and stopped working.

While wtwitch was (and still is) a good client, I missed one little detail from it; being able to see how long a channel has been online.

That’s why I was rather happy when a fellow user of Twitchy decided to fork Twitchy and make it work by fixing the missing headers for API calls, as well as adding the ‘new’ streaming quality 720p at 60 FPS.

I have no idea what the future is for this fork. It still has the same name and pretty much one commit since the fork, but for as long as it works, I’m going to use it.
