Version 3 Is Live!
Twitch Emotes version 3 of the site is now live which will better scale to the increasing number of emotes and new features that may be introduced in the future.
We have an API available to integrate data into 3rd party applications.
v3 brings structural changes to the responses as well and a shift toward channel IDs and instead of names.
Provides site-wide emotes available to all users. Keys are emote codes.
Provides information about channels with subscriber emotes. Keys are channel IDs.
Provides a mapping of emoticon sets to channel IDs and names. Keys are emoticon set IDs
Provides channel channel IDs and names for each emote. Keys are emote IDs.
API data is currently updated every 30 minutes (the same as the main site) so polling any more often will not be beneficial. Browser applications or extensions should not send requests to the API directly. You must cache on a your own backend server and then distribute to clients.
You are free to use this data** as a source for any application as long as you credit the source (this site) in all derivative works. We ask that you do not use this data to create a website directly mimicing our functionality. For applications with large traffic, we ask that you cache this data and do not pull directly from our API.
**Data is defined as added information we provide that is not generally available in the Twitch API (general emote descriptions, set ID -> channel name mappings, etc.)
Emote and badge images are property of Twitch Interactive or their respective owners. Do not reuse without obtaining their permission.
This is an independent site not run by Twitch. We love the community and wanted to build this resource for them.
