I’m creating an app app which involves Twitch IRC. In order to do this I need a couple of bits of information:
- The oAuth token
- The twitch username of the user
I’ve successfully managed to obtain the oAuth token through the ‘implicit grant flow’ by extracting it from ‘document.location.hash’ in the url as outlined in the link:
However this information does not include the username of the user which is required to connect to IRC. In order to connect I would need to ask the user to enter their username again into my app?
Is there any way to get the twitch username through the oAuth process?
Many thanks for your help
