from twitch_listener import listener # Connect to Twitch bot = listener.connect_twitch('yourUsernameHere', 'yourOauthHere', 'yourClientIDHere') # List of channels to connect to channels_to_listen_to = ['Northernlion', 'DumbDog', 'DanGheesling'] # Scrape chat data into raw log files. (Duration is seconds) bot.listen(channels_to_listen_to, duration = 1800) # Convert log files into .CSV format bot.parse_logs(timestamp = True) # Generate adjacency matrix bot.adj_matrix(weighted = False, matrix_name = "streamer_network.csv")
