Hidden Stream Embed

Welcome to my experimental twitch embed with script to show the stream only when live.

This was cobbled together from code I got from GitHub and other useful recourses.

Normal Embed With Chat

So I started off with a normal embed of a twitch stream and twitch chat.

This can be accomplished with something as simple as this:

<iframe class="test1" src="https://player.twitch.tv/?channel=tru3ta1ent&amp;parent=davidstockdalescrapcode.co.uk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" scrolling="no" height="500" width="620"></iframe>
<iframe id="chat_embed" src="https://www.twitch.tv/embed/tru3ta1ent/chat?parent=davidstockdalescrapcode.co.uk" height="500" width="300">
</iframe>

Hidden Unless Live

Next I found this code that hides the twitch embed unless the stream is live.

Hidden

Live

That code is shown here:

<html>
<head>
  <style>
    .hide { display:none; }

    /* Optional: The following css just makes sure the twitch video stays responsive */
    #twitch {
      position: relative;
      padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */
      padding-top: 25px;
      height: 0;
    }
    #twitch object, #twitch iframe {
      position: absolute;
      top: 0;
      left: 0;
      width: 100%;
      height: 100%;
    }
    </style>
</head>

<body>

  <script src= "https://player.twitch.tv/js/embed/v1.js"></script>

  <div id="twitch" class="hide">
  </div>

  <script type="text/javascript">
    var options = {
      channel: "tru3ta1ent", // TODO: Change this to the streams username you want to embed
      width: 500,
      height: 620,
    };
    var player = new Twitch.Player("twitch", options);

    player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.READY, initiate)

    function initiate() {
      player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.ONLINE, handleOnline);
      player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.OFFLINE, handleOffline);
      player.removeEventListener(Twitch.Player.READY, initiate);
    }

    function handleOnline() {
      document.getElementById("twitch").classList.remove('hide');
      player.removeEventListener(Twitch.Player.ONLINE, handleOnline);
      player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.OFFLINE, handleOffline);
      player.setMuted(false);
    }

    function handleOffline() {
      document.getElementById("twitch").classList.add('hide');
      player.removeEventListener(Twitch.Player.OFFLINE, handleOffline);
      player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.ONLINE, handleOnline);
      player.setMuted(true);
    }
  </script>

</body>
</html>

Hidden Twitch Shortcode

Next I converted that code into this simple to use shortcode:

/**
 * Adds shortcode (David Stockdale).
 */
add_shortcode('david_streamer', 'david_streamer_shortcode');
/**
 * Creates a hidden twitch stream (David Stockdale).
 * ----------Shortcode Use Examples---------- 
 * Channel: [david_streamer channel="tru3ta1ent"]
 */
function david_streamer_shortcode($atts) {
	$header= $atts['header'];
	
	/**
	 * Header level (optional) defaults to 2.
	 */
	if (!(isset($atts['channel']->a)) && !empty($atts['channel'])) {
		$channel = $atts['channel'];
		
		$result = '<div class="hiddentwitch">
		<html>
		<head>
		  <style>
			.hide { display:none; }

			/* Optional: The following css just makes sure the twitch video stays responsive */
			#twitch {
			  position: relative;
			  padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */
			  padding-top: 25px;
			  height: 0;
			}
			#twitch object, #twitch iframe {
			  position: absolute;
			  top: 0;
			  left: 0;
			  width: 100%;
			  height: 100%;
			}
			</style>
		</head>

		<body>

		  <script src= "https://player.twitch.tv/js/embed/v1.js"></script>

		  <div id="twitch" class="hide">
		  </div>

		  <script type="text/javascript">
			var options = {
			  channel: "'. $channel .'",
			  width: 500,
			  height: 620,
			};
			var player = new Twitch.Player("twitch", options);

			player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.READY, initiate)

			function initiate() {
			  player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.ONLINE, handleOnline);
			  player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.OFFLINE, handleOffline);
			  player.removeEventListener(Twitch.Player.READY, initiate);
			}

			function handleOnline() {
			  document.getElementById("twitch").classList.remove("hide");
			  player.removeEventListener(Twitch.Player.ONLINE, handleOnline);
			  player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.OFFLINE, handleOffline);
			  player.setMuted(false);
			}

			function handleOffline() {
			  document.getElementById("twitch").classList.add("hide");
			  player.removeEventListener(Twitch.Player.OFFLINE, handleOffline);
			  player.addEventListener(Twitch.Player.ONLINE, handleOnline);
			  player.setMuted(true);
			}
		  </script>

		</body>
		</html>
		</div>';

	} else {
		$result ='';
	}

	 return $result;
}

Hidden Twitch Shortcode With Chat

Before finally adding support for including twitch chat into that same shortcode.

Hidden

Live

This final shortcode can be found here:

/**
 * Adds shortcode (David Stockdale).
 */
add_shortcode('david_streamer', 'david_streamer_shortcode');
/**
 * Creates a hidden twitch stream (David Stockdale).
 * ----------Shortcode Use Examples---------- 
 * Channel: [david_streamer channel="tru3ta1ent"]
 * Channel + Chat : [david_streamer channel="tru3ta1ent" chat="true"]
 */
function david_streamer_shortcode($atts) {
	$header= $atts['header'];
	
	/**
	 * Header level (optional) defaults to 2.
	 */
	if (!(isset($atts['channel']->a)) && !empty($atts['channel'])) {
		$channel = $atts['channel'];
		
		
		if (!(isset($atts['chat']->a)) && !empty($atts['chat'])) {
		$chat = $atts['chat'];
			$result = '<div class="hiddentwitch" style="height: fit-content;
    width: -webkit-fill-available;
    display: inline-block;">

			  padding-top: 25px;

			#twitch object, #twitch iframe {
