Chrome extension that reads only


#1

I’m fairly new to all this so forgive me if there is a simple answer, but I’m trying to create a chrome extension that only reads the chat - never sends a message. I feel like I’d still need to send a request (I’m new to all this requesting stuff) but would I still need an oauth token, client ID etc…? (Granted I don’t fully understand what I’m talking about but I’ve been browsing the TMI.js api and stuff to see what’s up). Any and all help would be appreciated!

If going read only.

You only need to login to chat as justinfanXXXXX no oAuth needed.
