[F/OS] 📹 YouTube Analytics Extension

:computer: Introduction

This is an extension that allows you to get real-time data on your YouTube channel. This is a non-visible extension that analyzes data of your YouTube account. This will create a report which indicates the daily increase of the subscriber/comment/like/dislike/view count of your channel. This will not return the current data, but include the increase of data over time, just like Google Analytics.

:jigsaw: Sample blocks and usage

Since Appzard does not have the default Chart component, I used Tim’s ChartMakerPlus as a workaround.

Screen1: Use a line chart to display the increment of estimated minutes watched on my channel.

Screen2: Use a pie chart to display the increment of views on my channel.

:building_construction: Setup

Set up a script like how you do it normally, however there is one more thing you need to do.

  1. After you have pasted the script, click on the + icon next to Services at the left side.

  1. You will see a dialog popping up and a list in it. Enable two services separately: YouTube Analytics API and YouTube Data API v3. Do not change the identifiers or any other settings.

:books: FAQ

Q1: Is there a quota for this API?

A1: By default, YouTube Data API allows you to make 10,000 unit calls every day, and should be sufficient for your use. YouTube Data API Overview  |  Google Developers.

Q2: Should I consider sharing my deployment key or deployment link with other people?

A2: Don’t share the deployment key or deployment link with others. If you do, they will have access to most of the data on your YouTube channel and may do something nasty (I don’t know).

Q3: What is a YouTube Analytics report?

A3: This has little to do with your current YouTube account statistics. This extension, rather, show the increment of data over a specific period, such as, the increase of subscribers or views day by day. You would most likely want to use a Chart component with this extension. If you want to get the current data directly, you can use [Free] Youtube API Extension : Get Everything by API 🥳 - Extensions - Kodular Community.

Q4: Why is the AIA not working?

A4: This is because I have removed the script that reads my channel data. If you would like to use the AIA, please deploy your own script.

:notebook: Remarks

  1. The channel which has data processed is the channel of the script owner. Make sure to be careful when you share the data of your channel with your users.

  2. You must enable the services in your script, or else it will not work.

  3. This extension is open source! Free to modify and redistribute it, but please credit me as the author and a link to this topic.
