    Read this first

    This package should only be used directly when you don't seek for a full boilerplate as it only exports the initialize() function. It is recommended for new projects to use the main repo as a boilerplate.

    How does it work?

    Read the main repo's setup guide first, register an app and create a new account.

    1. Install this package: npm i twitch-chatbot-boilerplate

    2. Generate a new secret and copy both the secret and your Client-ID

    3. Create a .env file (download an example here) and enter all necessary information, alternatively you can use any other way of setting an environment variable

    4. Download or create your own views directory. If you choose to download it, download the public directory aswell.

    5. Call initialize() and follow further instructions

    const { initialize } = require('twitch-chatbot-boilerplate');
     
    async function main() {
        const { client } = await initialize();
     
        // This is the example on the tmi.js website
        client.on('message', (channel, userstate, message, self) => {
            if (self) return;
            if (message.toLowerCase() === '!hello') {
                client.say(channel, `@${userstate.username}, heya!`);
            }
        });
    }
    main().catch((e) => console.error(e));
    1. Write your bot's logic
    2. Deploy it
    3. Profit
