Dear Aydrian, how are you?
I am not able to test the full code using the command "TWITCH_SIGNING_SECRET=purplemonkeydishwasher node index.js".
The error is: ""TWITCH_SIGNING_SECRET=purplemonkeydishwasher" was not recognized as cmdlet name, function, script file or....

May you help me?

Hi Douglas. I'm doing well. Thank you.
What operating system are you using? This should work in unix based terminals.

You can also do this in 2 steps. First, you can set the environment variable by just entering TWITCH_SIGNING_SECRET=purplemonkeydishwasher into the terminal. You can check it my then entering ECHO $TWITCH_SIGNING_SECRET in the terminal and it should respond with purplemonkeydishwasher. Then you can run node index.js.

I hope this helps. I'm working on an update coming soon where I have it running in a Netlify function.
