Chatty

Chatty is a Twitch Chat Client for Desktop written in Java featuring many Twitch specific features.

I learned about most of the Java techniques and APIs used in this during development, so many things won't be designed ideally. I also never released such a project as opensource before, so if I missed anything or didn't adhere to some license correctly, please tell me.

Contributions

Contributions to Chatty under the terms of the GPLv3 License (or compatible) are welcome.

If you're contributing code that you didn't write yourself, make sure to adhere to whatever license terms it is under (like retaining copyright notices) and to detail that in the Pull Request.

Obviously, I won't be able to accept all contributions, for example I may already be working on something similiar. If you plan to put more than a little effort into a Pull Request, consider asking first if what you're doing has a chance of being added.

Notes on building the program yourself

The project is compiled using Gradle. Once you've checked it out, you can run gradlew build to compile and run the tests, and gradlew release to package the release artifacts.

If you have Hotkey Support enabled (Windows only), you need to include the JIntellitype32.dll or the JIntellitype64.dll for the 32/64bit versions of Java respectively (but always renamed to JIntellitype.dll). If you use the release task mentioned above, several different zip versions are created for this.

In Chatty.java you should set your own client id which you get from Twitch. You may also want to disable the Version Checker depending on how you will distribute the compiled program. See the comments in Chatty.java for more information.

Windows Standalone Bundle

You can create a standalone Windows version (including a JRE) using the javapackager program included in the JDK. Use the releaseWindows task to build both the regular zip files and the standalone version, or the windowsZip task to just build the standalone version.

You must specify the path to the javapackager program like this: gradlew windowsZip -PjavapackagerPath="<path_to>/javapackager.exe"

You may also specify the path to the JRE to bundle using the -PjrePath parameter, otherwise it will use the default JRE of the system.

Currently the build includes the JIntellitype32.dll, so you may have to exchange that file if you bundle a 64bit version of Java.
