Create A YouTube Homepage Clone in Tailwind CSS and React.js - Light Mode

Creating a clone of the YouTube homepage can be both enjoyable and helpful for enhancing your front-end development skills. This project offers a chance to work on a familiar design while getting practical experience with commonly used tools like React.js and Tailwind CSS. It also helps you understand how modern web applications are structured and styled.

In this blog post, I’ll guide you through creating a responsive YouTube homepage clone using React.js and Tailwind CSS. This project will replicate key features of YouTube’s design, such as a navbar with search, a grid layout for videos, a collapsible sidebar, and options for dark or light themes.

Demo of YouTube Homepage Clone in React.js & Tailwind

Tools and Libraries

  • React.js: Used for building the user interface.
  • Tailwind CSS: Used for styling the components.
  • Lucide React: Used for icons in the sidebar and other components.

Setting Up the Project

Before we start making YouTube homepage clone with React.js and Tailwind CSS, make sure you have Node.js installed on your computer. If you don’t have it, you can download and install it from the official Node.js website.

After installing Node.js, follow these easy steps to set up your project:

Create a Project Folder

  • Make a new folder, for instance, “youtube-homepage-clone”.
  • Open this folder in your VS Code editor.

Initialize the Project

Use Vite to create a new React app with this command:

npm create vite@latest ./ -- --template react

Install necessary dependencies:

npm install

Install Tailwind CSS

Install Tailwind CSS, PostCSS, and Autoprefixer:

npm install -D tailwindcss postcss autoprefixer
npx tailwindcss init -p

Install Lucide React

Add icons with Lucide React:

npm install lucide-react

Configure Tailwind CSS

Replace the code in tailwind.config.js with the provided configuration.

/** @type {import('tailwindcss').Config} */
export default {
  darkMode: "class",
  content: ["./index.html", "./src/**/*.{js,ts,jsx,tsx}"],
  theme: {
    extend: {},
  },
  plugins: [],
};

Start the Development Server:

npm run dev

If your project is up and running in your browser, congratulations! You’ve successfully set up your project. Now, let’s move on to the next step.

Modify CSS Files

  • Remove the default App.css file.
  • Replace the content of index.css with the provided code.
/* Importing Google Font - Open Sans */
@import url("https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Open+Sans:wght@400;500;600;700&display=swap");

@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

  font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif;
}

.custom_scrollbar {
  scrollbar-color: #999 transparent;
}

aside .custom_scrollbar {
  scrollbar-width: none;
  scrollbar-gutter: stable;
}

aside .custom_scrollbar:hover {
  scrollbar-width: thin;
}

.no_scrollbar {
  scrollbar-width: none;
}

.no_scrollbar::-webkit-scrollbar {
  display: none;
}

@media (max-width: 768px) {
  .custom_scrollbar.hide_thumb {
    scrollbar-color: transparent transparent;
  }
}

Assets Folder

Download the assets folder and replace the existing one in your project directory. This folder contains the logo and user image used on this YouTube homepage project.

Creating the Components

Within the src directory of your project, organize your files by creating three different folders: “layouts”, “components”, and “constants”. Inside these folders, create the following files:

  • layouts/Navbar.jsx
  • layouts/Sidebar.jsx
  • components/CategoryPill.jsx
  • components/VideoItem.jsx
  • constants/index.js

Adding the Codes

Add the respective code to each newly created file. These files define the layout, functionality, and constants used in the website.

In layouts/Navbar.jsx, add the following code. This file defines the layout for the navigation bar of our application.

import { Menu, Mic, MoonStar, Search, Sun } from "lucide-react";
import Logo from "../assets/logo.png";
import UserImg from "../assets/user.jpg";
import { useEffect, useState } from "react";

const Navbar = ({ toggleSidebar }) => {
  // Initialize dark mode state based on localStorage value
  const [isDarkMode, setIsDarkMode] = useState(() => {
    const savedMode = localStorage.getItem("darkMode");
    return savedMode ? JSON.parse(savedMode) : false;
  });

  // Effect to update body class and localStorage when dark mode state changes
  useEffect(() => {
    document.body.classList[isDarkMode ? "add" : "remove"]("dark");
    localStorage.setItem("darkMode", JSON.stringify(isDarkMode));
  }, [isDarkMode]);

  // Function to toggle dark mode state
  const toggleDarkMode = () => {
    setIsDarkMode((prevMode) => !prevMode);
  };

  return (
    <header className="sticky top-0 z-10 bg-white dark:bg-neutral-900">

  );
};

export default Navbar;

In layouts/Sidebar.jsx, add the following code. This file defines the layout for the sidebar bar of our application.

import React from "react";
import { sidebarLinks } from "../constants";
import { Home, Video, TvMinimal, UserRound, History, Clock4, Flame, Music, Gamepad2, Trophy, TvMinimalPlay, ListMusic, Tv, Settings, Flag, CircleHelp, MessageSquareWarning } from "lucide-react";

In components/CategoryPill.jsx, add the following code. This component code is used for rendering category pills.

const CategoryPill = ({ category }) => {

export default function App() {
  // State variable to track sidebar visibility
  const [isSidebarOpen, setIsSidebarOpen] = useState(false);

  // Function to toggle sidebar visibility
  const toggleSidebar = () => {
    setIsSidebarOpen(!isSidebarOpen);
  };

  // Effect hook to show sidebar on large devices initially
  useEffect(() => {
    if (window.innerWidth >= 768) setIsSidebarOpen(true);
  }, []);

  return (
    <div className="max-h-screen flex flex-col overflow-hidden dark:bg-neutral-900">
      <Navbar toggleSidebar={toggleSidebar} />
      <div className="flex overflow-auto">
        <Sidebar toggleSidebar={toggleSidebar} isSidebarOpen={isSidebarOpen} />

        {/* Overlay for mobile to close sidebar */}
        <div
          onClick={toggleSidebar}
          className={`md:hidden ${
            !isSidebarOpen && "opacity-0 pointer-events-none"
          } transition-all bg-black bg-opacity-50 h-screen w-full fixed left-0 top-0 z-20`}

          className={`w-full px-4 overflow-x-hidden custom_scrollbar ${
            isSidebarOpen && "hide_thumb"
          }`}

          <div className="sticky bg-white top-0 z-10 pb-3 flex gap-3 overflow-y-auto no_scrollbar dark:bg-neutral-900">

            ))}
          </div>

          {/* Video grid */}
          <div className="grid gap-4 grid-cols-[repeat(auto-fill,minmax(300px,1fr))] mt-5 pb-6">
