This is my first project working with APIs, IDs, and tokens, and I’m trying to get a grip on how to best implement my client ID.
I have developed a program that pulls some general video information from the API and displays it for the user. The program works in testing, but right now my client ID is hard-coded into the program in order to access the API.
Am I utilizing the client ID correctly in that sense? I mean, there’s not some other dynamic approach that I should be implementing, right? If I understand the tokens correctly, OAUTH tokens are dynamic, but they’re for accessing account-specific information; but there’s no user-based client ID that is personal to each person that uses the program, is that right?
Also, if something happens to my client ID or to my Twitch account, does that compromise my program’s functionality?
Any advice or direction is appreciated!
