I’ve read through the FAQ and the documentation for the twitch API.
I understand fully that I should not share my Client Secret with anyone else but myself.
The problem is that I am working on an application that I intend to distribute to the public for free, and that means I must also encrypt the key so that it may not be data mined.
I am an intermediate level hobbyist that have never dealt with any type of encryption before, and therefore I am wondering if anyone could help point me in a good direction, maybe some official documentation if that exists?
For reference I am currently using TwitchLib with a C# application.
Thanks in advance!
For this sort of application you would either:
- Use implicit auth to login a user as that only requries the clientID
- Ask the user to priovde their own cleintID/clientSecret
You can’t really store it encrypted as you need to decrypt it to use. So theres no docs for this since you just use implict auth instead.
Thank you so much, Barry!
Now that I have the name of the workflow needed for my application I could actually find it in the API documentation. If anyone stumbles across this question in the future via google, please refer to:
Thank you again for the quick and professional reply.
