Netflix Clone using ReactJS, Python (Flask), and TMDB API

Well, one day I was recommended by YouTube a video named "Build Netflix Clone in React" and I was like.... that's a cool idea. And that is how I spent four days non-stop building a Netflix clone. And here is the demo :


  • I built the front-end in ReactJS and hosted it on firebase.

  • For the back-end, I used Python with Flask since I needed some web-scraping work to be done.

  • As for getting the info about movies, I used TMDB API along with JustWatch for getting the sources where we can stream movies/shows/anime, as shown below for the anime Jujutsu Kaisen:


If you are interested in the code, you can get the repo here, if any of you are interested to know how I built it, then I'll definitely write a tutorial on it!
