Django app for managing a searchable index of Youtube videos

Project description

ytindex

ytindex is a Django app for managing a searchable index of Youtube videos and their captions. The app relies on Elasticsearch for the indexing and searching. The app has no admin, no models and only provides one restful endpoint for making queries.

To use

Install Elasticsearch and then install

pip install django-ytindex django
  1. Add "ytindex" to your INSTALLED_APPS

    INSTALLED_APPS = [
        ...
        'ytindex',
    ]
    
  2. Include the ytindex URLconf in your project urls.py

    path('yti/', include('ytindex.urls')),
    
  3. Define the channel id of the Youtube channel you want to index and the Elasticsearch config you want to use

      YTCI_SETTINGS = {
          'api_key':'AIzaSyCrGGcnVjY8AV7XWSHEIco3TDw4qobkh1w',
          'jrei': {
              'channel_id': 'UCzQUP1qoWDoEbmsQxvdjxgQ',
              'line_size': 12,
              'elastic': {
                  'index': 'jre-index',
                  'dtype': 'jrei-episode',
                  'es_host': 'localhost:9200'
              }
          }
      }
    
  4. Run

      ./manage index_latest [index name eg. jrei]
    

    to index the latest videos on the channel. (Put this in crontab)

  5. Run the dev server and visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/yti/jrei/elk to search the index.
