List of Self Hosted Twitch Bots

Bots are used to help manage, moderate, and bring fun to your Twitch chat while streaming. While there are public bots that do not need any software to run, you lose your ability to truly customize them however you want. Self hosted bots allow you more freedom in this sense, but they require you to host them on your machine or server. This is not a review for these programs, this is just to inform people about some of the more interesting self hosted bots.

All of the listed software can be run on Windows, compatibility for other OS may vary.

Streamlabs Chatbot/Ankhbot -FREE- [Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer]

Streamlabs Chatbot_2018-04-06_21-10-10
Version: 1.0.2.45 Apr. 06, 2018 – Windows 10

Formally known as Ankhbot, Streamlabs Chatbot was originally designed only for Twitch. However, in recent months you can also use this bot with YouTube and Mixer. It is the most well-known self hosted bot, even before Streamlabs acquired it. The UI is clean and out of all the other bots, it really does blow them out of the water by this alone. If you know Python scripting, you can create your own script, so if the bot doesn’t have a feature you want, you can create it yourself. Unlike most bots, you may find yourself stuck toggling  or setting options in the program since some cannot be adjusted otherwise.

Phantombot -FREE- [Twitch Only]

firefox_2018-04-06_21-37-19
Version: 2.4.0.3-NB-20180401 Apr. 01, 2018 – FireFox, Windows 10

An open source Twitch bot that is highly customizable. This bot can be run on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It also uses little resources. You do have a control panel that you can access with a web browser (no internet needed if running it locally) and may not be as user-friendly as some may want. However, they are currently creating a dashboard that will be very similar to how public bots look. Although, I would rather prefer a standalone application instead of having to bring up a web browser in order to view this, but it does make it available to other OS.

Deepbot -ONE TIME PAYMENT, VIP SUBSCRIPTION- [Twitch Only]

2018-04-07_16-51-40
Version: 0.11.1.2 Apr. 06, 2018 – Windows 10

A bot I have been using since early this year, it is a powerful bot with a good variable library that can allow you to create multitudes of complex commands instead of learning another programming language needed to achieve in others. The downside is that you need to pay $10 to purchase a license and then $5 per month to access VIP features. Some of which are the most powerful variables. It also needs an overhaul in the GUI as well. But powerful integration and features in this bot make up for the cost of maintaining it and the outdated UI. It also helps the only guy who is working on it so cheers.

Ultimate Twitch Bot -FREE- [Twitch Only]

2018-04-07_19-02-18
Version: 3.12.0 Jan. 09, 2018 – Windows 10

I do not really know much about this bot. It may not contain as many features as the rest, but it does have a pretty amazing permission/rank system. It is the only bot I can find that has a trivia game, something I wish other bots had.
