Back in 2020, my buddies and I were building a small website for ourselves as a sort of gaming community. We were a bit into streaming video games, even if that failed miserably since we averaged 0 viewers per stream. Particularly, we were still checking out the platforms available, and I had found out about Mixer. It seemed like an interesting platform, even before one of the biggest Twitch streamers at the time had signed a contract with them which supposedly would've brought a lot of new customers to the platform. Needless to say, they killed off the platform. They were bought by Meta and are now Facebook Gaming.
However, before that happened I had a plan to learn how to build component libraries for React and that's when the idea hit. I wanted to embed Mixer streams into our gaming website, and what better way to do it through my own embed library? So I decided to build it.
Sadly though, a few months later, the service was sunset forever, and I was left with my very first deprecated project.
RIP Mixer. 🕊️
