yt-fts is a simple python script that uses yt-dlp to scrape all of a youtube channels subtitles and load them into an sqlite database that is searchable from the command line. It allows you to query a channel for specific key word or phrase and will generate time stamped youtube urls to the video containing the keyword.


git clone
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt

This project requires yt-dlp installed globally. See here if you have issues.


python3 -m pip install -U yt-dlp

Writing summaries is more important than reading more books — Andreas Fragner
One thing I’ve learned over time is to read fewer books but to take the time to write summaries for the good ones. The ROI of spending 2h writing a synopsis is much higher than spending those 2h powering through the next book on your list. Reading is not about page count or speed. What matters is how it changes your thinking and what you take away form it. Optimize for comprehension, not volume.
