Hi !

I'm trying to use the twitch PubSub API with websocket connection and I can't manage to receive the basic PONG response after sending a PING

Here's the log I got after running the code:

> Connecting...
> Socket Open with 
> SENT {"type":"PING"}
> Socket Closed, clean : False
--- Debugging process stopped ---

I don't know if I'm sending the {"type" : "PING"} the right way, any ideas ?

Here's my code with a fake client_id that correspond to my App's token registered inside the twitch dev dashboard.

extends Node

var client_ID := "helloworld123456789"
var socket :=

# Called when the node enters the scene tree for the first time.
func _ready():
    socket.connect("connection_closed", self, "_on_connection_closed")
    socket.connect("connection_error", self, "_on_connection_error")
    socket.connect("connection_established", self, "_on_connected")
    socket.connect("data_received", self, "_on_data")
    socket.connect("server_close_request", self, "_on_ask_to_close")

    socket.verify_ssl = true

    var err = socket.connect_to_url("wss://")

    if err == OK:
    elif err != OK:
        Logger.log("Error Connecting")

func _process(delta):
    if(socket.get_connection_status() != NetworkedMultiplayerPeer.CONNECTION_DISCONNECTED):

func _on_connection_closed(was_clean := false):
    Logger.log("Socket Closed, clean : " + str(was_clean))

func _on_connection_error():
    Logger.log("Socket Error.")

func _on_connected(protocol := ""):
    Logger.log("Socket Open with " + protocol)
    send_data({"type" : "PING"})

func _on_ask_to_close(code: int, reason: String):
    Logger.log("Ask to close connection. " + str(code) + " " + reason)

func send_data(command):
    var cmd_to_send = JSON.print(command)
    Logger.log("SENT " + cmd_to_send)
    var x = socket.get_peer(1).put_packet(cmd_to_send.to_utf8())

func _on_data():
    var payload = JSON.parse(socket.get_peer(1).get_packet().get_string_from_utf8()).result
    Logger.log("DATA RECEIVED " + str(payload))
