Pairing with Jhey Tompkins

On , DEV Community member Jhey Tompkins joined @coffeecraftcode and I on the pairing stream to have some fun and help us build out a Twitch overlay using our mascot, Sloan!'s mascot Sloan

Watch the pairing session with Jhey below to catch up on what you missed:

On this stream, we talked about:

  • Sloan, DEV's awesome mascot!
  • Twitch overlays
  • ComfyJS (which allows folks to interact with a Twitch stream via chat commands)

npm GitHub

We built this Comfy Twitch Chat Module live on Twitch for Coding Cafe!

Special Thanks: Comfy.JS is possible thanks to tmi.js maintained by @AlcaDesign

Comfy.JS lets you integrate with Twitch chat for your Twitch channel SUPER EASILY in just a few lines of code. Here's a quick 3-min video on how to use it: (Click image to open video)
