Twitchio.js: A better way to interact with twitch services

🤔 What's this all about?

Twitchio.js provides functions that make it easy to interact with Twitch API and other twitch related services including but not limited to the helix API, the Kraken API, the BTTV API, and the FFZ API.
at its most basic Twitchio wraps twitch API credentials with the fetch function so you don't have to pass them in every time, but it also has functions that get data from different API endpoints for you with basic inputs.

⚡ Quick and easy implementation

step 1:

npm i twitchio-js

//Then, paste this at the top of your JavaScript file:
const TwitchIO = require("twitchio-js");
// or
import TwitchIO from "twitchio-js")
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 2: Use any of the commands explained the Documentation to interact with twitch services however you like.
