Adding custom Javascript

If you have some Javascript you need to run when your Owncast web page loads, you can add it to the Javascript editor under the General settings page in the admin.

Adding custom javascript was first supported in Owncast 0.1.0.

Some examples of reasons you might need this:

  • Adding privacy-respecting analytics.
  • Initializing a payment processor you have embedded on your page.
  • Use Javascript to manipulate the interface.


Double check your Javascript. Any incorrect syntax or errors that you insert into the page may create errors and stop the page from loading or functionality from working.
