Follower and Subscriber Counter

Introduction: Follower and Subscriber Counter

This project made for counting instagram follower and youtube subscriber..

platform are used:

Python

Arduino

Step 1: Materials / Tools:

  • Arduino uno
  • Lcd Shield
  • Programing cable
  • Windows PC

Step 2: Create Api Keys

For instagram Api

GO To This Website :https://instagram.pixelunion.net/

and push generate access token

For youtube Api

You Can Follow The Steps From this website : https://www.slickremix.com/docs/get-api-key-for-yo...

Step 3: Upload Sketch to Arduino

You Can Download Code And Programs From My Github Page:

Step 4: Python

I made 2 python program one of thes have a graphical user interface the other one only works on bash

you can use both of them actually they making same things.

you should choose which port you plugged arduino from the list and push select button.

and you are DONE....

Download Programs From My Github : https://github.com/ayberkeren/SOCIAL-MEDIA-COUNTER

and the codes are below......

Step 5: DONE....

CONGRATULATIONS....
