public class TwitchExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Client client = Client.builder()
        client.getEventManager().registerEventListener(new TwitchListener(client));
        // etc.
  • The server password has to be the OAuth token, with oath: as a prefix
  • Nickname has to be the twitch username.
  • The TwitchDelaySender obeys Twitch rules on message sending.
  • The TwitchListener class registers Twitch-specific message tags and listens for Twitch-specific events like commands.


With TwitchListener, KICL requests the following capabilities:

    • Enables Twitch-specific commands.
    • Enables receiving JOIN/MODE/NAMES/PART.
    • Enables receiving Twitch-specific message tags.

The various Twitch features in KICL can be found in the package org.kitteh.irc.client.library.feature.twitch
