const Video = require('twilio-video');

Video.connect('$TOKEN', { name: 'room-name' }).then(room => {
  console.log('Connected to Room "%s"', room.name);

  room.participants.forEach(participantConnected);
  room.on('participantConnected', participantConnected);

  room.on('participantDisconnected', participantDisconnected);
  room.once('disconnected', error => room.participants.forEach(participantDisconnected));
});

function participantConnected(participant) {
  console.log('Participant "%s" connected', participant.identity);

  const div = document.createElement('div');
  div.id = participant.sid;
  div.innerText = participant.identity;

  participant.on('trackSubscribed', track => trackSubscribed(div, track));
  participant.tracks.forEach(track => trackSubscribed(div, track));
  participant.on('trackUnsubscribed', trackUnsubscribed);

  document.body.appendChild(div);
}

function participantDisconnected(participant) {
  console.log('Participant "%s" disconnected', participant.identity);

  participant.tracks.forEach(trackUnsubscribed);
  document.getElementById(participant.sid).remove();
