Overview

It's not all about the stats, right? Well, in YouTube land, maybe it is sometimes! If you're a little bit obsessed with tracking your stats, read on!

This PyPortal YouTube Views and Subscribers Display runs on CircuitPython and uses the Google APIs to grab JSON data and display your view count and subscriber count. And it does so through the thin air with its on-board WiFi ESP32 co-processor.

The text is displayed on top of a custom background graphic and mounted to a 3D printed stand with a matching retro-style red bezel!

Plus, you'll hear a satisfying "ba-ding!" each time you gain a new subscriber.
