I was wondering if any of you kind folks could recommend any online examples of a very basic working chatbot in PHP - something that will do the connect, get messages and post messages.
I’ve been reading up all the ones I could find on Google but they’re all either several years old (which may or may not be a problem, I don’t know if this is a thing that Twitch have futzed with at all), or they’re very stuffed full of other functions which makes it confusing and complicated for my novice coder idiot brain, or they are specifically for using on your home computer not a remote web server and I’m entirely unclear on how to adapt those. Obviously I have read the Twitch docs as well, many, many times, but I don’t know how to turn their generic instructions into viable code!
I did post to the Twitch dev Discord to see if I could hire someone to get the basic setup done because once I’ve got the data and can get the bot’s account to post I can deal with everything else, but then got spammed and harrassed endlessly by scammers to the point I had to shut down half my social media accounts and change my phone number, so backing away from that plan! Unfortunately all the 3rd party chatbots we’ve tried out don’t have the features that we particularly need to work with our streaming setup. We’ve got all our commands on our web server so people can preview them and that already handles all our automatied channel rewards, so it would really just complete the thing if I could get the chatbot stuff up and running but I’m not qualified to do it alone!
