A tiny app that goes through the list of channels/playlists from youtube.
This app enables you to add as many entries as you need through the admin panel and it will scrape the video data you
need from youtube.
How to use
Simply add the following configuration values to your settings.py file:
YOUTUBE_DEVELOPER_KEY = '<YOUR_APP_ID>'
YOUTUBE_MAX_RESULTS = 10 # default is 10
YOUTUBE_FOLLOW_PAGINATION = True # Default is false
YOUTUBE_MAX_PAGINATION = 10 # default is 10
YOUTUBE_ENTRY_PIPELINES = [
As you've noticed, This app does not provide a model/table that saves the video info for you. Instead, you have to
write your own pipeline (Inspired by scrapy) to save the data manually.
Pipeline looks as follows:
from youtuber.pipelines import BasePipeline
def process(self, youtube_source, video):
You can pretty much do whatever you like in the pipeline with the video instance.
The youtube_source instance is a [YoutubeSource](django-youtuber/tree/master/youtuber/models.py) instance provided by
django_youtuber to identify where the video came from. The video instance is a [YoutubeFeedItem](django-youtuber/tree/master/youtuber/client.py)
that contains the list of attributes extracted for a single youtube video.
Don't also forget to configure celery as the application distributes source among different workers to fetch the list
of videos from all sources in parallel.
BROKER_URL = 'amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672/'
You can also register task
[youtuber_start](django-youtuber/tree/master/youtuber/tasks.py) as a scheduled task and run celery beat to make that
every given time duration.
