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

pip install django-ytindex

  1. Add “ytindex” to your INSTALLED_APPS:

  2. Include the ytindex URLconf in your project

    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:

        'jrei': {
            'channel_id': 'UCzQUP1qoWDoEbmsQxvdjxgQ',
            '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

  5. Run the dev server and visit to search the index.
