We were looking to make something that would provide more user interaction for bit donations. We used the cheer cup as an inspiration, as it provides a small animation for whenever bits are donated.
What it does
Allows a streamer to host a mini-game that's fused into their bit donation system. Anyone who donates is eligible to play blackjack, and can compete for high ranks on the leaderboards.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
MongoDB is impossible to connect to on the AWS if you are not within their server, so we had to host the database on a local machine. We often were unsure of the syntax for all of the different connections between front and back end.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting the Twitch Extension to load and work was extremely difficult. Getting to build a MongoDB for the first time.
What we learned
What's next for BitJack
Integration with Bits is next for BitJack. This would finalize the leaderboards setting.
