Channels Build Status

The Mac App for YouTube Channels.



Channels, began as a 3 week, final project at a coding bootcamp. Since then, in an effort to gain a better understanding of React and Redux, I've completely rewritten the 3 week app. The rewrite includes some great new tooling and libraries such as: Flow, ESLint, and Jest.


You can download Channels for free from the GitHub repository releases page.
