  1. 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.

  2. It would be very easy to build and design for if there were official typing for all data endpoints. The data between all the different API's for the same data isn't consistent, and with event sub, since it no longer relies on the underlying Helix endpoint, that data can now be different too. This will also mitigate typos on the docs which causes huge headaches when trying to code for API responses and the data not working, or missing fields. The typing can specify which fields are required and which are optional, so when designing your app, you can easily…

  3. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/guide#command--message-limits says:
    - 20 authenticate attempts per 10 seconds per user (200 for verified bots)
    - 20 join attempts per 10 seconds per user (2000 for verified bots)

    however it's unclear how these limits apply to anonymous connections. Is there no limit to join attempts at all when you have authenticated as an anonymous user? And do authentication attempts for anonymous users (NICK justinfan12345) count towards the rate limit?

  4. It should be more obvious that Twitch IRC: Commands needs the commands capability, Twitch IRC: Tags needs the tags capability, Membership page needs the membership capability.

    IE:

    Literally add a paragraph at the top to the effect of

    The Twitch IRC responses outlined on this page requires the connection to have requested the $whatever capability as outlined on the https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/guide#twitch-irc-capabilities Capabilities section of the guide.

  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

  8. Extensions Manager Overview -> Capabilities -> Request Identity Link

    Description refers to viewer as a male ('his'). This is likely to offend some people?

  9. URL

    "scopes": [
    "<requested scopes>"

  10. 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

  11. From: https://github.com/twitchdev/issues/issues/14

    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"

  12. This page has this line

    "Your response must return a 200 status code, the response body must contain the raw challenge value, and you must set the Content-Type response header to the length of the challenge value. If successful, your subscription is enabled."

    I have assumed that this is meant to say "Content-Length" rather than "Content-Type", because using the challenge length as a Content-Type is not a valid content type.

  14. In the section "HTTPS on localhost: the easy way" it says to launch python webserver with command: "python3 -m http.server", but this will launch it on port 8000, not 8080 like it says in the next sentence:

    Then, change your base URI in the Asset Hosting page of your control panel from https://localhost:8080 to http://localhost:8080.

  15. Just under the Step 4 header, on line 11 of the code, the html tags open with '<tr><th>' and end with '</td></tr>' and I'm wondering if it's meant to be '</th></tr>' ? if not that's no issue, I'm not the most used to HTML, it just seems odd that it would close with a different tag without an explanation.

  17. Hey Twitch team -- the Twitch API "status page" link at the bottom of the page at https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/guide/#twitch-api-health currently links to a login-gated Atlassian page.

    I tried using my work's Atlassian account, but even with that, I can't view the Twitch API health page.

    Any way to make it publicly accessible?

  18. If successful, the refresh token response includes a expires_in value. that is not shown in the example and is a very useful field.

  20. Hello guys, I can understand that documentation is boring but it brings a lot benefits on the long term. So please think about those two suggestions:
    1) In your 101 tutorials page for example. Add an next page button.
    2) Typos are made i know. I do it myself. But before publishing your guide check for typos - its your production environment. people can see this.

    Cheers
    Patrick
