An alternative for Youtube trends
When it comes to side projects I'm always looking for something useful to build. Usually useful for me, but maybe also useful for other people. I created Ytrends because the Youtube oficial trends algorithm sucks (personal opinion).
The project is no longer hosted and online, but you can still deploy it using the repository.
Algorithm generated for different countries
Contact form that uses Firebase storage as backend
Remove unwanted categories from your resultset
Laptop mode Russia content
Korean content under mobile
Japan under tablet
The project was made with typescript. It has a typescript + react + bulmacss frontend. The backend is just a script, also created with typescript. It uses the Youtube Api and some math to create a new trends algorithm.
A Docker container serves the backend and updates the videos daily.
Use of Firebase free tier for serverless contact form storage.
The project depends on the Youtube Api and we all know that Google likes to discontinue their things so I cannot guarantee that this project will be alive forever.
Show me the code
This project is open source, I made a github repository so you can explore it.
