Use the Twitchtv JSON API

  1. Objective: Build a app that is functionally similar to this:
  2. Fulfill the below user stories. Use whichever libraries or APIs you need. Give it your own personal style.
  3. User Story: I can see whether Free Code Camp is currently streaming on
  4. User Story: I can click the status output and be sent directly to the Free Code Camp's channel.
  5. User Story: if a Twitch user is currently streaming, I can see additional details about what they are streaming.
  6. Hint: See an example call to's JSONP API at
  7. Hint: The relevant documentation about this API call is here:
  8. Hint: Here's an array of the usernames of people who regularly stream: ["ESL_SC2", "OgamingSC2", "cretetion", "freecodecamp", "storbeck", "habathcx", "RobotCaleb", "noobs2ninjas"]
  9. UPDATE: Due to a change in conditions on API usage explained here now requires an API key, but we've built a workaround. Use instead of twitch's API base URL (i.e. ) and you'll still be able to get account information, without needing to sign up for an API key.
  10. Remember to use Read-Search-Ask if you get stuck.
