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.
Setting up your own instance
As of right now Multistream runs on Linux.
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.
(via pip, pacman, apt, etc)
pip install pipenv
Pull down the code
git clone https://obsolete.computer/static/code/multistream/.git
Build the Pipenv environment and grab dependencies
Edit the .env file with info for your environment
The Twitch API client ID and client secret can be obtained through their dev console.
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-plugin-clean-css(both in the AUR).
lessc --math=strict --clean-css="advanced" multistream.less > multistream.css
Fire up the dev server
pipenv run ./manage.py runserver
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
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.
