Twitch v5 Gem - Lumberyard User Guide

Twitch v5 Gem

The Twitch v5 Gem is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of Lumberyard. It has been replaced by the Twitch API Gem.
Open 3D Engine (O3DE), the successor to Lumberyard, is now available in Developer Preview. Download O3DE or visit the AWS Game Tech blog to learn more.

The Twitch v5 Gem is a wrapper for the Legacy Twitch v5 RESTful API. Install this Gem into your Lumberyard project to access legacy Twitch API v5 features.


Twitch API v5 is deprecated. Consider migrating to the latest version of the Twitch API, which is supported in Lumberyard by the newer Twitch API Gem.
