Getting Started with Jarvis
Jarvis has heaps of great features to help you stay connected with your community in or out of your Live Stream.
This getting started guide gives you an overview of some of Jarvis' core features, unpacks some of the language we use and covers the steps required to get you up and running with full Twitch and Discord integration.
Getting Started with Twitch
Jarvis has some great features to support your stream, like chat moderation, song requests via Spotify and an overlay you can add to OBS. Before you can do any of these, you must first connect Jarvis to your Twitch account.
Using the 'Connect via Twitch' button above, connect Jarvis to your twitch account by signing in with your twitch credentials via Twitch.tv. Once you've signed in, you'll be redirected to the Streamer Dashboard, but with that one step, you're ready to get started with Jarvis!
Using Twitch Commands
There are heaps of great built-in commands to help you promote what's important to you, commands to moderate your community and for your mods to help manage your stream (like updating the game you're playing or the stream title right from chat). But, sometimes you will want to create your own commands
When invoking a command from Jarvis we use the
! symbol to identify a command from a regular word.
To create your own commands you need to use the
jarvis and the
add keywords, plus the command and text that command represents. All together that might look like
!jarvis add !social https://twitter.com/jarvisontwitch so that every time someone in your Twitch chat uses
!social Jarvis will return the link to Twitter.
You can find out more about the Twitch commands by visiting the Commands Page or using
!commands in twitch chat to pull up the commands list at any time. Plus! If you have created your own custom commands, you will also see a third tab with all the commands you've created for your chat.
We decided not to use the keyword
command for creating commands because lots of people run multiple bots together, and we don't want to cause both bots to trigger at the same time.
A quick note: Commands have mandatory (
< >) and optional (
[ ]) values that need to be included to make them work. Oh! One more thing, you don't need to use the brackets when using the commands in Twitch or Discord.
Getting Started with Discord
Get stream announcements and other perks to keep your community conencted between streams.
From the menu or the Steam Dashboard sidebar select the Connect Discord Bot for the invitation link for Jarvis. Set the permissions for your server and you're ready to go.
Configuring Stream Announcements
Configuring stream announcements for your stream, members of your community, or people you follow is easy. Get started in 2 steps.
- To get started use the
!notifycommand in the text-channel you want to recieve notifications in — something like "Announcements" is usually a good pick.
!follow <channel_name>for any twitch streamer (e.g.
!follow rushisc). You can subscribe to notifications for as many streams as you like.
That's it! You're setup and ready to start getting notifications. For more commands and features, check out the commands page.
