# Multistream *The best way to watch multiple Twitch streams at one time.* Well, maybe not any more, but I still like it. Simplicity is sometimes the greatest asset a project can have. This is the code (a Django project) that powers [Multistre.am](https://multistre.am). Please if you find any bugs, [contact me](/who.html) before you hack into the site. ##Setting up your own instance As of right now Multistream runs on Linux. ### Dependencies You'll need `pipenv` and `nodejs-less` along with `nodejs-less-plugin-clean-css` (annoyingly, hoping to change this soon)... and I think that's it, since Pipenv will handle the installation of Django & some other Python dependencies. ### Install Pipenv (via pip, pacman, apt, etc) `pip install pipenv` ### Pull down the code `git clone https://obsolete.computer/static/code/multistream/.git` `cd multistream` ### Build the Pipenv environment and grab dependencies `pipenv install` ### Edit the .env file with info for your environment The Twitch API client ID and client secret can be obtained through their [dev console](https://dev.twitch.tv). `cp env.sample .env && nano .env` ### Create a Sqlite database `pipenv run ./manage.py migrate` ### Build the frontend CSS Right now this is the step that requires `nodejs-less` and `nodejs-less-plugin-clean-css` (both in the AUR). `cd frontend/static` `lessc --math=strict --clean-css="advanced" multistream.less > multistream.css` `cd ../..` ### Fire up the dev server `pipenv run ./manage.py runserver` ## Test/Use/Build! Point your browser to `http://localhost:8000`. You should be greeted by the familiar stream-picker form. If you try to build a multistream layout, you won't initially see the players & chats load... this is for development. To test out the real thing, set `USE_LIVE_EMBEDS` to `True` in your `.env` file. The admin url by default is `http://localhost:8000/ms-admin/`. You can create an admin account for your instance with the command `pipenv run ./manage.py createsuperuser`.
