[Twitch Extension]

This was a simple project created for a single live streamer on twitch, however it became unexpectedly popular due to its simple design and functionality.

At peak, over 50k active channels had this extension installed. Causing over 3 million API requests per day*. The API had to be rapidly optimized and scaled due to this traffic, this was done by optimizing the server and implementing CloudFlares caching services on the API.

*Currently averages at 3 million requests per day from an average of 1 million "unique visitors" according to CloudFlare.
