Currently I’m working on a big mod / system for a game.
The system requires users to create an account to which then you can link streaming services including Twitch.
This means that in the extension I would need to either:
- Display a login panel which I would like to handle via an iframe which would then return my system’s token via its cookies.
- Make a call to the server and have a db lookup table to compare twitch usernames with my system’s usernames (the problem here is that there could be multiple users using the same Twitch account and you could impersonate someone else).
I don’t want to send the credentials to the server via plain text, I would like to display my service’s login panel instead.
Here’s my question. Is twitch fine with solutions like an iframe for authentication in 3rd party systems ?
Thanks in advance.
