At last it is done, hurra hurra ! The codepen description speaks for itself. Feedback welcome!
I decided to use the Twitch API rather than the array object provided by FCC (though their concern and provision are much appreciated). I found the comments of @gobees, @fuecisla, and @csapty12 especially helpful regarding this issue (see the project guide: freeCodeCamp Challenge Guide: How to Use the TwitchTV API). I did some digging into the points made by @zelite regarding security and the Client ID required to use the current Twitch API and believe he is right (also see @s_coder, Exposing API keys). Either way, I am not a big Twitch user, and my learning goal for this exercise was to access and manipulate data via their api. As a result, I learned a lot more this way, and also found some interesting channels regarding game development, programming, design, etc.–great fun!
