Twitch-Chat sample

Using the Twitch sample bundle

The Twitch-chat example bundle in samples/twitch-chat demonstrates the ability to get access to a twitch chat and printing all messages of it. Here is a guide to how to get it working.


You will need a working nodecg-io installation. If you have non yet take a look at installation guide. You may need to install this bundle, so take a look at the “Try an included sample”-Guide. It will also tell you how to log in and how to use the GUI.

You also need:

  • a Twitch oAuth-Key


If you don't have such a key yet, you can generate it on Just log into your Twitch account and copy the token.

Configure the Twitch sample bundle

  1. In NodeCG, create a new twitch-chat service instance.

  2. Enter your Twitch OAuth Key:

        "oauthKey": "oauth:abcdef...."

    After entering it, click save.

  3. Set the sample's (twitch-chat) dependency to be the newly created service instance (of type twitch-chat).

  4. Check the NodeCG logs:

    You should see an error or a success message and all twitch messages that are written in the twitch channel that is hardcoded in samples/twitch-chat/extension/index.ts.
