How to set up social connection with Twitch
Adding social connection with Twitch to your app with Clerk is simple - you only need to set the Client ID, Client Secret and Authorized redirect URI in your instance settings.
To make the development flow as smooth as possible, Clerk uses preconfigured shared OAuth credentials and redirect URIs for development instances - no other configuration is needed.
For production instances, you will need to generate your own Client ID and Client secret using your Twitch account.
The purpose of this guide is to help you create a Twitch account and a Twitch OAuth app - if you're looking for step-by-step instructions using Clerk to add social connection (OAuth) to your application, follow the Social connection (OAuth) guide.
