Youtube Data API with Oauth2

Hi, all. I have a basic question that I can't find the answer anywhere. I've played with the youtube data api with node.js https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/quickstart/nodejs and I can retrieve data just fine both with the api key and oauth2. I cannot figure out how to do the same in a React app, should I follow javascript quickstart or node.js. Or should I look for oauth2 tutorial.

Most youtube videos dealing with the api only use the api key without oauth, which doesn't help my cause. Sorry if this sounds like a silly web dev question, any docs or tutorials to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

As you can tell I am not a web dev, be kind if the question is so basic. If you know of a good youtube data api tutorial with oauth2 and react or something similar that I can benefit from I am all ears. Thanks in advanced.
