SmartTV Twitch AndroidTV APK
This is a web application designed to give access to Twitch features on SmartTV's, the official Twitch app is not available for most devices, that is why this project exists.
The intention of this is to make a web app that works on all modern browsers and can be easily ported to any OS that can run a web app.
This app has no affiliation with Twitch, this is a user made app, but is only possible because Twitch provides all the APIs that allow the app to show Twitch content.
Those APIs are documented here:
This app has to be registered to access Twitch API, that registration process is described here:
This project is the main project of two Twitch projects I current maintain, originally I started working on the smarttv-twitch repo, I'm using separate repos to make it easier to use GitHub pages and keep commit history separated.
The original project runs on Samsung Tizen OS, which is very limited. Because of that, the Android version has become the main project, not all features of the Android project can be ported to the Samsung one, but from time to time I will port the features from the Android version to the Samsung version.
I initially forked this from https://github.com/CazuzaCzz/SmartTwitchTV/commits/tizen The original fork is nikitakatchik/SmartTwitchTV
I have started this project because the above repos of the app did not fully support my TV model (at the time this was a Samsung Tizen OS only project) and didn't have all possible Twitch features.
I keep the original name and commit history but not as a fork simply because I made so many changes and it makes no sense to call this a fork. I have made a new application from scratch focusing on performance and all available Twitch features, with the help of users and contributors reporting bugs and asking for features the app has become what is today, an app that can be easily used to watch all available Twitch content and give the user lots of extra options, but I know that the application can be improved with new features and improvements are always in the works, mostly to provide better experience and more options to the user, but that process is slow mostly because there is only one person working on the project and that work is done for free on spare time.
The application is split into two parts: a web app and an Android APK.
The web app is a web page Click here to access it, this page contains the app user interface and most of the app logic.
The APK holds two main views of the app:
The web app and the APK use a "OS interface" to communicate back and forth.
To communicate with the web app, the APK will use this function call
FUN_NAME must be one of the functions exposed by app API
In order for the app to work, the back and forth communication between the UI and the APK is necessary. The process is technically simple but if you've never seen it, it may seem complicated at first.
The app has two strings files:
Follow the below instruction to translate, test and send the files back.
apk/app/src/main/res/values/strings.xml; make sure you inform why you didn't translate in case there's an issue that needs to be resolved.
untranslated_*.txtmust be named this way so in the future it's easier to know which strings need to be updated, as when changes are made to the original strings I may remove them from the translation so the translator knows that they need to update, also new strings created after the translation will be added to
This file is part of the web app. The easiest wat to test that file is to:
This file is part of the APK and it's technically not needed to test it, just make sure you've followed the Translate instructions, I will do a check, and if I find an issue I'll let you know.
If you're updating an existing language, you can send the update via GitHub pull request (that is the preferred way), but if you don't use GitHub, just send the files via email [email protected], make sure to send the full file not just what you have changed.
If you're adding a new language, send all the files (including the
untranslated_*.txt) via a issue or a email [email protected] (specify the language they are for, make sure you've tested/validated the files and report the result and issues you've found). Once those files are added to the repository, one can update them just using GitHub pull request.
If you are using this on an Android TV device, install it from Google Play. If you can't see the app on the store, use the release version. You can't install the release APK if you already have the Google Play store APK installed and vice versa.
Yes, but the support is limited, you need to use the APK from release and manually install the APK. Be aware that this app is designed to be used mainly on TVs, the support for other devices is limited and may never receive better support. If you don't have a keyboard or a D-pad + enter key controller, use the on screen virtual D-pad + back key to navigate. In settings you can change position and opacity of the virtual D-pad, click anywhere on the screen to show the virtual D-pad (when it is hidden it doesn't work).
The user can add an authorization key (not required to use the app), here is the complete description of what that key is and how it's used by the app.
That key will be used to access Twitch content specific to the user. Each requested permission has a reason and below is the full description of what each permission will be used for:
The app uses the following permission:

The web app and the APK need to be build/generated. Here is a simple explanation on how that is done.
The web app files are located here SmartTwitchTV/app but that is not the code that the end user runs. To generate the final code, first those files need to be processed. To do that, this script release_maker.sh can be used.
How that process works is divided on each language of the web app...
smartTwitchTV is the object that the APK uses to communicate with the web app, that is why it has some exported properties - those properties are all functions that the APK uses to communicate with the web app.
The CSS files from this folder will be processed, cleaned and compressed in the same folder.
If all the process finises OK, the script will inform which of those files have changed in relation to the last time the script was executed. A commit can be pushed to update those files in the repo. Every time that the APK starts, those files will be downloaded by the app, this way the majority of the app Logic and UI can be updated without having to push a new APK, simply by closing and opening the app the end user updates to latest version, the app has a building update check function that informs the user when a update is available, so the user is always up to date.
To build the APK:
new folder(the name is irrelevant) inside of that folder...
git clone https://github.com/fgl27/SmartTwitchTV), if you download it make sure you extract it to the
https://github.com/fgl27/ExoPlayer), if download make sure you extract it to the
new foldercontains these two folders
ExoPlayerbefore proceeding to the next step
Crashlyticsand related services, this app uses Firebase Crashlytics to be able to get crash reports from the app and use those to improve it, that process uses a file
google-services.jsonin that file there are private keys that can't be published, so in order to build the app for testing you need to comment out a few lines - those lines start with
Crashlytics endcomment out all in between on this files SmartTwitchTV/apk/build.gradle and SmartTwitchTV/apk/app/build.gradle
You can just open the SmartTwitchTV/app/index.html in a browser, but that will not allow you to, for example, add a user and authorization key.
To be able to do that, you need to run this html from the https link https://127.0.0.1:5000/app/, to do that you can just use Node.js extension
http-server to create a web server and call the link https://127.0.0.1:5000/app/.
Let's say you've made modifications to the web app and you want to test those on a real device.
You need to copy the content of the SmartTwitchTV/app folder to the SmartTwitchTV/apk/app/src/main/assets/app (this folder may not exist, just create it), then set
LoadFromAssets to true in SmartTwitchTV/apk/app/src/main/java/com/fgl27/twitch/Constants.java
I have made a script that does it for you, works on Linux SmartTwitchTV/release/scripts/up_assets.sh, call the script without passing any argument to set, pass 1 to unset or clean the assets folder.
Any help is welcome.
To make changes on the web app, edit the files from SmartTwitchTV/app, to test those changes just open the file
smartTwitchTV/app/index.html on a browser preferably Chrome (the Webview that the app uses use the same web interface as Chrome so testing on Chrome on a computer is very close to test on a device).
If the changes that you are making are on a part of the app that interacts with the APK you must be changing functions that use functions of this file OSInterface.js, in order to test those you can build the app and included the folder SmartTwitchTV/app inside the app
To do that create a
assets folder on SmartTwitchTV/apk/app/src/main/ folder copy the SmartTwitchTV/app folder to it, after before build modify the Constants.java file, un-comment the first two lines
//final static String PageUrl and
//final static String KeyPageUrl and comment-out the next two lines that are of the same variables. Now build the app and test yours changes.
To make changes to the app APK, just use the Android Studio to make the changes, to build and test use the build process of the APK.
