Let me know if a project like that could get me hired!
I’ve made a YouTube Clone which you can see here: https://fir-610f8.web.app/
Front end is all React, styling with styled-components (which is basically vanilla CSS, for those who don’t know).
I’ve disabled the uploading function, because I don’t want the traffic, but you can log in and post comments.
Features include: Search Function, Favorites List that you can add videos to, Night Mode which is remembered by the browser. You can like videos, comment on them; they have a view counter. I did not implement any of the delete functions.
None of the front end was copied from somewhere, I did not follow any specific tutorial. For some reason auto-complete for CSS does not work on my Linux machine, so all CSS was written from my head.
Let me know what you think!
In the next two months I will learn Express to the end (currently learning user authentication, jwt tokens etc), Jest and GraphQL. For 2022 I plan to learn Go for backend, because I have my own projects in mind, I’ve already build two Web Scrapers with Go, they are much faster than my Python scraper.
