YouTube API

YouTube allows billions of people to discover, watch and share originally-created videos. YouTube provides a forum for people to connect, inform, and inspire others across the globe and acts as a distribution platform for original content creators and advertisers large and small.

Use the YouTube Connector

Add the youtube connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the youtube API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const youtube = this.connector(
'youtube', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield youtube.get('path_to_API');
yield youtube.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating YouTube API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your YouTube API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed YouTube API calls.

Integrate YouTube into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the YouTube API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates youtube API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// youtube authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const youtube = this.connector(
    'youtube',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield youtube.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// youtube authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const youtube = this.connector(
    'youtube',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
  this.run.task('TaskA');
  this.youtube.post('path_to_API');
  yield run.task('TaskB');
  yield this.run.task('TaskD');
});
// Tasks can be automatically (or manually) retried and executions are displayed in real-time on the Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow, duration } = require("zenaton");

// youtube authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("WaitWorkflow", function* () {
  const youtube = this.connector(
    'youtube',

  yield this.run.task('TaskA');

    const event = yield this.wait.event("MyEvent").for(duration.hours(24));
    if (event) {
      // If event has been triggered within 24 hours
