  • ytdata

    Historical 2009-2010 YouTube API metadata statistics crawler

    As did I, for a long time. But there is another important statistic, a few clicks away that you may have missed. Chris Foo's stats from 2010 on the Archive Team survey. There and then, the deletion rate was a measly ~4%. That means that a lot of those videos were deleted after one year had passed, which would not be explainable by such a use-case as yours alone.

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.
