Featured Clips - Clips Discovery Feed
Initially we'll need an API to toggle that check box on a clip that makes a clip eligible for the discovery feed.
So that we can have editors (or mods that don't need/shouldn't have editor role on the site) the ability to manage clips in an external tool that third parties may have.
(will need to update this UV, probably, when theres more information about the feature when API stuff I'd like is figured out)
We need an API in order to build a tool that correlates off-Twitch social activities with clip discovery and need to differentiate between featured and non-featured clips, as well as dates as to when they were featured vs. unfeatured again. I would imagine some kind of nested "featured" object with timestamps could work for this purpose, or simply a first_featured_at and last_featured_at might suffice.
As well as an Update Featured Clip endpoint, to toggle the status, we'll also need the current status of if a clip is featured or not added to the existing Get Clips endpoint.
Considering the number of clips returned are always limited, I don't think additional params to sort clips by featured status or not is required as it'll be easy enough to page through the limited pages and sort on the devs side, but if there are future plans to allow for more clips then perhaps a sort param by featured, view count, or date, would be nice.
We would like to build a tool that would use data (viewer engagement, clip views, and other supporting metrics) and automate this process of enabling and rotating Featured Clips to empower creators to get the maximum value out of the new Clips feed with as little effort as possible :)
Please give us API so that we can help the creators.
