Log in / Authentication with Twitch

Hey Guys, I’m new to this so any help would be much appreciated.

I’m currently looking to start building a website for my Partner “The streamer of the house hold”
& I’ve only ever used Builders such as Wix / Squarespace.

I was wondering if it is possible to create a log in button with people using there twitch credentials to log in, to build a database for players to join a que to play wither her & to see if they are subbed to the channel or not to allow them to join.

a good example of what I’m looking to achieve is https://loeya.tv/ (which demonstrates all I need to be able to do.)

I hope this all makes sense many thanks!

Yes

Authentication is covered here https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/ it uses oAuth

And https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-broadcaster-subscriptions or https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#check-user-subscription covers doing subscription checks

Hey Barry,

Thank you for such a quick response, with regards to the oAuth etc, do you know if this is something that can be done inside a website builder such as Wix or Squarespace? Sorry for the repeat of a question, if so is this something id have to learn to code for? :slight_smile:

Thanks again!

If using implicit auth perhaps.

But I would never ever use any of these website builders. They tend to have weird restrictions in place/limitations

Stand alone would give you the most flexibility to do what yo uwant.

Okay mate thank you! How would one go about starting to use the “Implicit Auths”

& on the flip side what would you recomend to start using / learn to start going stand alone!

Sorry about all the questions man!

Implicit is documented here https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/getting-tokens-oauth#oauth-implicit-code-flow

Pick a language, find some learning tools for it (codeacademy is generally pretty good) and go from there
