How to get data from Twitch-API with python

Hello Everyone,

This is a small quick py script for how to call API and how to parse json to csv with pandas for the beginners.

1 – Install below libraries,

import pandas as pd
import requests
import json

2 – Set your static values, btw you can use those values with .yml file

url = “”
# List of channels we want to access
channels = [“ESL_SC2”, “OgamingSC2”, “cretetion”, “freecodecamp”, “storbeck”, “habathcx”, “RobotCaleb”, “noobs2ninjas”,
“ninja”, “shroud”, “Dakotaz”, “esltv_cs”, “pokimane”, “tsm_bjergsen”, “boxbox”, “a_seagull”,
“kinggothalion”, “jahrein”, “thenadeshot”, “sivhd”, “kingrichard”]

file_name = “talih.csv”
location =”C:\\Users\\talih\\Desktop\\TwitchPy\\TwitchAPI\\”
“”” Those values can be used with .yml file “””

3 – Set your class,functions:
class apicrawler:

def __init__(self,url,channels,file_name,location):
self.url = url
self.channels = channels
self.file_name = file_name
self.location = location

def selectedchannelcrawler(url,channels,location,file_name):
channels_list = []
for channel in channels:
JSONContent = requests.get(url + channel).json()
channels_list.append([JSONContent[‘_id’], JSONContent[‘display_name’], JSONContent[‘status’],
JSONContent[‘followers’], JSONContent[‘views’]])

dataset = pd.DataFrame(channels_list)
dataset.columns = [‘Id’, ‘Name’, ‘Status’, ‘Followers’, ‘Views’]
dataset.dropna(axis = 0, how = ‘any’, inplace = True)
dataset.index = pd.RangeIndex(len(dataset.index))
dataset.to_csv(location + file_name, sep=’,’, encoding=’utf-8′)

4 – Call that class for your own values:
