Oh god, front end web development, specifically javascript. This is the front end for the API based backend of DumbYT, a simple Youtube manager that keeps track of various channels or videos a user wants to be “subscribed” to.

This project makes use of the following:

  • Vuejs Reasonable javascript framework that’s well documented and actively developed.
  • Axios Nice HTTP post/delete/etc helper library
  • TypeScript Making javascript more bearable, adds types to the language and other niceties.
  • WebPack Handles running the Typescript compiler and minifying and running a server for development.

Getting Started

  1. Clone the repository
  2. Run npm update to download all the project dependencies.
  3. Run npm start which will automatically start a server and recompile the typescript based backend when there are file changes. Also, /api is proxied back to the production server, though this can be edited in webpack.config.js.
  4. Run npm run-script build which generates the frontend files for production.
