Twitch Profile Widget (Widgets)

Twitch Profile Widget is a WordPress plugin which allows you to setup and configure multiple widgets to be displayed on your WordPress website, which will display the current streaming status of the specified Twitch account; including the avatar, currently active game and the viewer count.

The data displayed by Twitch Profile Widget is cached for 30 seconds periods, to minimise network activity and protect against network errors. In addition to this, the data is refreshed asynchronously, preventing the end-user from seeing delays in loading times whilst viewing your website.

The plugin also uses version 5 of the Twitch API, released in 2017, ensuring that it will not cease to work once the older APIs are disabled.

To use this plugin, you must be using PHP 5.3+ with cURL enabled.
