Installation

As a server

npm install && npm start

As a docker image

Basic

docker run --name ytdl -d -p 3000:3000 algram/ytdl-webserver

Advanced

Build the docker image, create a directory to hold and access the downloaded videos on the host, and then start a container instance of the image.

docker build -t <your username>/ytdl-webserver .
mkdir /tmp/videos
docker run --name ytdl -v /tmp/videos:/home/app/public/temp -p 3000:3000 -d <your username>/ytdl-webserver

In the example above, we are creating a directory under /tmp to hold the videos and then specifying a host mount to the container that corresponds to that new directory. You may update this to any path on your host or use a different existing path if you would prefer. The host mount also improves performance as the downloaded files are written to the native host filesystem bypassing the CoW filesystem of the container.

Development

To start contributing you only have to run one command.

npm run dev

This will start webpack and a dev server on localhost:8080
