We watch a lot of twitch.
What it does
Allows users to follow channels and receive texts when they're live.
How I built it
Node.JS server running on Azure checks all user's streams and sends out texts when they're live.
Challenges I ran into
Looping an asynchronous function call is really hard.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It actually works
What's next for twext
Twitch's API, while rather limited in terms of functionality, provides enough data for a more extensive set of features to be implemented. The data provided can be analyzed to produce more informative and detailed texts to better improve the experience for the user.
