  1. This page suggests "OAuth Authorization code flow" but i don't believe this is correct because for a chatbot to be effective you would need the access token to never expire or the process to handle expiry and refresh to be event driven. Having a robot/non-existing user login seems misleading or wrong.

  2. There are reference to V5 API here to get user and channel ID.
    Combined with the GitHub Sample at https://github.com/twitchdev/pubsub-javascript-sample that is still using it this is very confusing to get to work.
    Suggest to update the sample and this article to reference the helix APIs instead.

  3. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc

    As a getting started/IRC docs landing page is confusing new developers

    As it references

    The token to authenticate your chatbot with Twitch's servers. Generate this with https://twitchapps.com/tmi/ (a Twitch community-driven wrapper around the Twitch API), while logged in to your chatbot account. The token will be an alphanumeric string.

    And doesn't reference anything about the "right way" to auth/scopes needed

    Until the end of the guide.

    Authentication using not a third party site should be more prevalent in the guide.

  4. Declares that only broadcasterid and rewardid are required.

    A call to

    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/channel_points/custom_rewards/redemptions?broadcaster_id=10817445&reward_id=e28e55f3-9743-4365-840c-b4e2b82d386f

    results in

    {
    "error": "Bad Request",
    "status": 400,
    "message": "missing redemption status"
    }

    The documentation lists status as not required

  5. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/tags#usernotice-twitch-tags documents anonsubgift and anongiftpaidupgrade. I found this announcement post https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/anonymous-sub-gifting-to-launch-11-15-launch-details/18683 saying that apparently it was temporarily disabled as a workaround. As far as I can tell to this day the workaround is used. The documentation should be updated to remove the originally planned but never put into service types, and instead document that anonymous gifts come from AnAnonymousGifter.

  6. The examples for Google Analytics suggest using jQuery. Which is extra bloat if an extension hasn't use jQuery to start with and can lead to confusion

  7. As per this other uservoice

    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39645769-moderator-actions-pubsub-topic-should-work-for-all

    The moderation actions PubSub at time of writing requires a key from the channel you wish to listen to with the scope channel:moderate

    However the scopes page

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/#scopes

    is mis leading as it only talks about how the scope works for chat leading to confusion with pubsub operation

    "Perform moderation actions in a channel. The user requesting the scope must be a moderator in the channel."

    The wording needs to be changed and/or the pubsub topic adjusted to support being able to read moderator events as a moderator

  9. From: https://github.com/twitchdev/issues/issues/72

    Brief description

    By default, pop-out control is enabled for panel Extensions and for extension “live configuration views” (see the Live Config Path setting on the Asset Hosting tab in the Extensions manager).

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/required-technical-background

    The documentation suggests that extension developers can disable pop-outs. Which is not the case

  10. From: https://github.com/twitchdev/issues/issues/70

    Brief description

    The documentation for creating signing JWT's don't explicitly state that user_id/channel_id in JWT's need to be an explicit string literal

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/building/#signing-the-jwt
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/reference#send-extension-pubsub-message

    Expected documentation

    Where:
    exp is the Unix epoch timestamp when the payload will expire. Be sure to provide a buffer, to allow potential positive time drift.
    user_id is the Twitch user ID that owns the extension, where the user ID is cast as a string literal.
    role is set to external.

  11. From: https://github.com/twitchdev/issues/issues/69
    Brief description

    Some endpoints return a 204 code no content.
    But this is only highlighted in the example responses and not in the "main documentation"

    For example

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/reference#send-extension-pubsub-message
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/reference#send-extension-chat-message

    Each endpoint documented could be extended to include usual HTTP response codes.

    Expected documentation

    The expected response code for success when theres no body response
    Common non 2xx codes for the endpoints

  12. From: https://github.com/twitchdev/issues/issues/55

    Brief description

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/building#using-the-configuration-service

    Doesn't mention the key bit of information regarding the size limit of 5kb

    Additional context or questions

    It's important to note here as people will start designing an extension and then discover the sizing limit late into construction of an extension. For clarity the limit should be noted here also

    Brief description

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/webhooks-reference

    the hub.topic section is out of date, in the JSON Body Parameters

    Expected documentation

    Just changed it to something like "refer to later in this docs for the available topics"

  14. Twitch has one of the most intelligent and tech savvy user bases of any product I can think of. If Twitch were to make their documentation source code Open Source, members of the community that are tech savvy enough will do your job for you.

    I just went through the documentation when trying to figure out how to make my first banner and my first Video Player Banner. I am unaware of what a "Video Player Banner" as someone that does not normally watch much Twitch but is attempting to start to learn more about it.

    As someone that works…

  15. Description of 'outcomes' in 'Create Prediction' says that array size must be 2. Isn't the current limit between 2 and 10?

  16. Add examples of popular 3rd party libraries.

    The current example is very specific and only targets one language. Many community driven libraries are continuously developing and mainting IRC capablities in languages such as; Python, JS/TS, C# and more.

    It would be nice in general to see more support for these libraries and even giving some sort of verfication to popular libraries that are maintained and meet quality standards.

  18. Since the docs are so long, and each header has an ID you can link to, you should put a link icon that copies the link to clipboard for each header for easy sharing.

  19. Provide a link to the referenced branch associated with each step.

    There are no branches for steps 3 and 4. The existing branches don't correlate to the code presented for each step on this page.
    And there's messy commented out code in all of the files on GitHub.

    Also, 4 steps are explained, and then the last sentence in this doc mentions the Step 1 branch

  20. This tutorial looks very unprofessional.

    The example GitHub repository is not available from an official Twitch source, but lives in someone's personal
    account at:
    https://github.com/sonia145

    These GitHub organizations would be better alternatives:
    https://github.com/twitchtv
    https://github.com/twitchdev
