We chose challenge #3 by DJTechlive. As users of the Twitch.tv ourselves, we noticed that a lot of energy is generated within a stream's chat. Most notable is the influx of emotes triggered by some event occurring on stream. We wanted to make use of this energy, to give it some sort of shape.
What it does
This extension keeps track of the amount of emotes sent in a channel's chat. A visual progress bar shows on the stream as an overlay, increasing with each emote sent. Once the bar fills all the way, an event is triggered. Currently we have an audio clip set to play.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of overcoming the challenges we faced. We played to our strengths, and came up with a solid product. It may not yet be fully fleshed out, but the initial concept is visualized. We believe that our project fits the theme perfectly.
What we learned
What's next for WEmote
We believe that there is much more we can build into our extension. There are a few areas for expansion that we have in mind. First are customizations, tailoring the extension to each individual streamer using it. Allowing streamers to upload their own audio clips and emote selection will be options. We also want to improve upon our front end. The completion of the progress bar should be also more eventful. Currently we're thinking visual animations and better interfaces with more options for both streamers and viewers.
