Dynamically Generated YouTube Stats for your GitHub Readmes

Do you like to stream videos on software development on YouTube & like to share the source code via github?

If the answer to the above question is yes, then this article is valuable for you. Recently I created a project which dynamically generates YouTube Stats Card for the youtube channel and videos. These cards will give an aesthetic look on your Github profile readme and the repo readmes as compared to the normal youtube URL.

YouTube Stats Card allows you to simply add a markdown image link and it will show the real-time stats for your Channel and Videos as follows.

In this article, I will explain how to use this to generate elegant statistics for your YT channel and videos.

YouTube Channel Stats

The above link will generate the following stats card having layout as extruded and color theme as dark pink:

You can also customize the appearance of your Channel Stats Card with the following URL query params:

  • layout — Default, Center, Extruded (name)
  • hide_icons — Hide the icons from channel card (boolean)
  • hide_logo — Hide the logo from channel card (boolean)
  • theme — Name of the theme, choose from all available themes

  • title_color — Card’s title color (hex color)
  • text_color — Body text color (hex color)

  • bg_color — Card’s background color (hex color)
  • custom_title — Add the custom title to the channel card (use %20 to add space)
  • cache_seconds — set the cache header manually (min: 1800, max: 86400)
