Youtube Subscriber Count in ReactJs

In this tutorial i’m going to learn how to count YouTube Subsribers count, views count as well, as define below.

In order to install your app, first go to your workspace (desktop or a folder) and run the following command:

Go to your visual code and open terminal there as below.

npx create-react-app my-app

Next step go to your my-app

After the installation is completed, change to the directory where your app was installed:

cd my-app

and finally run npm start to see your app live on localhost:

npm start

Next First install bootstrap in react

npm install react-bootstrap bootstrap

Now simply copy and paste below code in App.js

Firs’t run below command

npm i get-youtube-channel-id
npm i react-bootstrap

and next go to App.js and simply paste below code.

import React, { useState } from "react";
import "bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css";
import Container from "react-bootstrap/Container";
import { Button, Form } from "react-bootstrap";

const youtubeChannelId = require("get-youtube-channel-id");

export default function App() {
const [url, setUrl] = useState(null);
const [subscribers, setSubscribers] = useState(null);
const [views, setViews] = useState(null);
const [videos, setVideos] = useState(null);

const API_KEY = "AIzaSyDmTojFDOFUpjlr6e-lnKT5sHBn5UD2bOI";

const handleChange = (e) => {
setUrl(e.target.value);
};

async function handleSubmit(e) {
e.preventDefault();
const result = await youtubeChannelId(url);
console.log(result.id);

fetch(
`https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/channels?part=statistics&id=${result.id}&key=${API_KEY}`
)
.then((data) => data.json())
.then((result) => {
console.log(result);
setSubscribers(result.items[0].statistics.subscriberCount);
setViews(result.items[0].statistics.viewCount);
setVideos(result.items[0].statistics.videoCount);
});
}

return (
<div>
<br />
<br />
<Container>
<div
style={{
display: "flex",
justifyContent: "center",
alignItems: "center",
height: "12vh",
color: "red"
}}
>
<h2> Enter your channel url </h2>
</div>
<Form onSubmit={handleSubmit}>
<Form.Group controlId="channelUrl">
<Form.Label>Channel URL:</Form.Label>
<Form.Control
type="text"
name="url"
onChange={handleChange}
value={url}
required
placeholder="Enter Channel URL"
/>
</Form.Group>
<br />
<Button variant="primary" type="submit">
Submit
</Button>
<br />
</Form>
You have {subscribers} subscribers
<br />
You have {videos} Videos
<br />
You have {views} Views
</Container>
</div>
);
}

Run this command

npm rebuild
npm start

Now you can see your code is running well.

Next put your YouTube Channel url in input box.
