Looking for a basic "New Follower" alert

I will probably get shunned for this but after doing some searching on the forums, most people requesting something on the lines of a new follower alert was told to post in this section or just died off.

I currently use CLR Browser for donation alerts and was wondering if there is something out there to add a basic popup for new followers. I am still a pretty new streamer and thought it would be cool to see in the top corner of my stream a little popup on the stream with the users name.

Any help would be great right about now because everything i current found is browser based and i am running out of screen space for all my windows lol

I know there is a site for this called tnotifier.net but it costs as far as I'm aware.

There is also an OBS plugin that updates a text file with your latest twitch follower, but it's quite delayed and unreliable.

yea i am already using tnotifer for new followers but want to cut down on windows being open. I just thinking there must be some way to use CLR browser and the twitch api together.

You could do this by making a decently simple javascript that polls the API from within the CLR Browser.
The API has some caching issues though, which means that follows aren't updated instantly, but rather in chunks once in a while (at least that's how it have seemed when I have been working with it).

well I know fire create a pretty much real time follower api website https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/334 ... n=USERNAME and TN seems to be also pretty realtime (max 1 to 2 seconds at most) I just have to try a wrap my mind around it.

I have made a Java application for just that, based off of: https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/da_coder/follows?limit=1&offset=0
I am making a post on it right now, it is pretty good so far :P

Edit: http://www.nightdev.com/followalert/ has already done it, it's well done too.
I was going to post this because I emailed him about it and he said that it wasn't worth the time. Looks like I wasn't the only one who wanted a custom Follower alert!
Uh? I cannot understand what you said, who did you email?

I emailed Night about it through his site. He originally told me it wasn't worth it, but I think he realized it was to those who aren't Partners with Twitch. I'm super happy for this!
 
yea this was posted before night created the new follower alert. I know Night and he puts alot of effort in his alerts and addons. I was glad he changed his mind! Thanks guys.

Hey all. I really want to use the NightDev thingy, as I already setup my sound and such. But to use it you have to install
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) as here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=8328...

but I have windows 8 and after multiple tries of installing that and using the nightdev it's just not working even though the SP1 is saying it's installed...

Any solutions? ty.

Please contact NightDev for assistance with their tools. In the future, if you need assistance with OBS, make a new thread instead of posting to one that hasn't had replies in months.

So to keep this dead thread going but I am on the NightDev support team and conversed with Night about this. He said that it is a current issue but isn't actually a issue lol. It's a misreading I guess.

So you should be able to skip it. Just make sure you have the right OBS (32 or 64 bit) installed, the CLR Browser (match the 32 or 64 bit with you OBS) and then go through the alert setup.

Most times you can catch someone on our NightDev IRC support so maybe check out there.

This post is over a year old and I'm sure you found a website to do what you were seeking help with, but if you haven't found anything reliable try http://www.twitchalerts.com
You will need CLR browser and it can be used for all twitch notifications: New > Followers/Subscribers/Donations.
