NightDev has a lot of the plugins I use for my stream. I use a few of the plugins they offer – In the future, I know I will go back to using more of them.

NightDev is a software development company making tools that focus on automation of repetitive tasks.

BetterTTV | Download plugin

This plugin allows you to change the normal Twitch theme to a darken grey theme (I find it more appealing), additional features to prioritize your chat and helps customize your channel. There are even some minor effects like changing all the purple buttons to blue, etc.

Follower Alert | Download plugin

This is a great feature for streaming! Everytime someone follows your channel, an alert will appear on your screen.  This feature is great – It’s basically giving a shout out to the new follower!

Nightbot is a chat bot for Twitch that can perfom a variety of moderating tasks specifically designed to create a more efficient and friendly environment for your community.

There are also other features like hosting giveaways, creating custom commands, timed commands, Song Request is another great feature and so much more. Take the time to look around and see what Nightbot has to offer.

Snaz | Download plugin

If you plan on hosting long streams or even just need a countdown for your stream, Snaz is an easy plugin to use & install! I used this when I did my 24 hour Extra Life stream and it was a huge help to keep track of time.
