Clearly very excited about extensions over here.
The app I have in mind is a basic drag and drop toy. It’d be great if streamers could use & upload their own assets to suit their brand or whatever game their playing.
Will users be able to upload/ add their own assets to extensions? Or will that all be hard coded in once the extension has shipped?
Looks like you can load images that are not hosted by the Twitch CDN.
By default, all assets must be loaded from the Twitch CDN, except the following:
- You can connect to any HTTPS or WSS endpoint (i.e., for purposes of an XHR).
- Images can be loaded from anywhere or via a data URI.
- Google fonts are allowed as valid sources for fonts and stylesheets.
Citation: I have a published/released/live extension that loads images from not Twitch.
Good to know. Do streamers have any control over these assets? Can they upload/ add their own?
My hunch is that if this is possible it will require back end implementation.
For me the assets/images are uploaded to the same place i serve my server side part of the extension. The extension offers the same functionalality as the website. So both website and extension uses the same assets
It’s a currency store. Now users don’t have to go offsite to use the store. It’s all embedded below the stream. But they still can leave twitch to use the store.
