In late 2017, Twitch released “Extensions”, for the first time allowing Web Developers to build on-site interactive interfaces for live stream viewers. In this talk, Brian will explore how his small indie games studio used a set of modern web technologies to construct their dream project: a real-time interactive web interface that lets audience members interact with live-streamers playing their game. You’ll look at how this extension was built using React, CSS Animations, Cloud Functions, ES6, Webpack, NPM and Firebase, while exploring the unique challenges of designing interactive interfaces meant for video overlays.
Bonus: Time and connection permitting, you’ll have a chance to help (or hurt) Brian as he live streams a game of Clone Drone in the Danger Zone by launching your own laser-sword-wielding robots via the React interface.
