Twitch Links
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Catch links in fast moving twitch chat, moving them to a managable list for easy clicking!

This extension monitors Twitch chat, saving all links posted in chat to a separate list. Clicking the Twitch Links icon will show all captured links, allowing you to easily view and click them without fighting the tide of new chat posts coming in. Links will only be shown for the currently open twitch window/tab, but will be read in the background for all active tabs. Enjoy!

Doesn't work at all, at least not anymore (or at least for bots). I remember when this extension or a similar one worked perfectly. Might be a symptom of Manifest v2 or just Twitch changing their stuff so many times.

This extension simply scrapes the chat in real time looking for links, no API usage, since (AFAIK) that would require a BE service or to rewrite it as a Twitch Extension for content creators. I'm pretty sure the extension still works for standard twitch, but as soon as you install something like 7TV (which seems to rebuild the chat interface with its own class assignments) it can no longer find/read messages/links. I'm toying with the idea of rewriting the extension to use API, since a scraping model will always be brittle to both Twitch updates and other extensions overwriting UI (like 7TV). Really curious if it's possible to use API as a client only app/extension. Anyways, you probably don't care, but that's the rundown :)
