Awesome article. I just started using Typescript as well and found this really useful. Also your application is great, really love the design and it's very quick!

Thank you James. I also learned a lot from writing this and I'm glad it helped you.

I had a lot of fun coming up with the design as well, I had ideas on what elements should be present in the page but as for the rest I basically experimented with them while coding and it took me quite some time until I'm satisfied with it 😆

As for why it's quick, I believe fetching the initial videos from a JSON file instead of reaching out to Youtube on page load really helped in increasing the page speed. As well as deploying it on Netlify.
