instagram-scraping

license npm downloads

NodeJS module for loading posts from Instagram by hashtag without API access by means of scraping.

Disclamer

Instagram has gone to great lengths to prevent scraping and other unauthorized access to their public content. This module is dependant on the markup the public-facing instagram.com. Should that change this module might also stop working as intended. It also only loads the 12 posts that are displayed on first-load without following pagination to load more images. You should take this into consideration when deciding whether this module will work for you.

Installation

npm install instagram-scraping

Usage

There are some limitation of loading instagram data, but enjoy it. i hope it's will help you.
