This little script is still very much in its testing phases, as are some of its dependencies (i.e. tmi.js, the fantastic basis that allowed me to do this).
The purpose of the script is to receive common events (subscriptions, timeouts, etc) from Twitch, including chat messages, and translate these momentous occasions to a moderator Slack site.
One of the fringe benefits of this script is storing recent messages alongside user data, so that when bans or timeouts occur, Slack can be notified with a short history included to identify why that user was purged, etc.
NOTE: This script will be worked on fairly sporatically. I do this for fun and to help out some of the streamers I watch, and a few friends have asked for access to it so I've put it out there so that it can be put to good use!
For now, this is intended just for other programmers, although it's well enough commented that anyone should be able to read through it and edit it for their needs. I've done my best to make everything as self-explanatory as I can!
The script is reasonably well-commented where you'll need to make changes, however you will also need to setup an incoming webhook integration on Slack. The incoming-webhook-url generated by that integration is used in the script to identify and permit the data the bot sends.
If you're having some issues or have feature requests that are inline with the bot's design, feel free to e-mail or tweet at me @CapnCase. I'd also love to hear about what you're using the bot for if you make some changes!
If you don't have the ability to run the bot yourself, I also run some customized versions of this bot as a service to several streamers. Same as above, the best way to get in touch is e-mail or Twitter.
