A Gross Simplification of YouTube built on Node.js with React.

Why I built it

I built this app as a medium to learn more in-depth about Webpack. I have been using Webpack for a while now with the help of contributed gists from our generous coding community, but I really wanted to learn what exactly my webpack.config.js file was doing for me.

This was a great learning opportunity--there's still a lot to learn about Webpack, but if all of a sudden create-react-app disappeared from the face of the earth, I could still bootstrap the project from scratch using Webpack.

Technologies Used

  • Node.js
  • Express.js
  • React
  • Babel
  • Webpack
  • YouTube Search API
  • Heroku
  • ES5/ES6
  • Bootstrap


I'll be happy to explain my code, just reach out to me on twitter @mrgovindrai.
