Idea for a twitch chat script


#1

I just started programming and was thinking of a project to test my skills. I thought I could write a script to count how many times a given emote was used during a stream. Being a beginner, I’m not sure whether this is possible through Twitch’s API or not, cause I didn’t find anything about it on the docs, and I’m kinda clueless orverall. Any help would be of interest!

Twitch chat API is largely IRC-compatible. Start here: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/

Emotes are sent in the message tags: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/tags/#privmsg-twitch-tags
