ml-image-searcher

license npm downloads

NodeJS module NPM package that helps to search for images using instagram hashtags and machine learning object recognition technology.

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. You should take this into consideration when deciding whether this module will work for you.

Motivation

In example below output shows how searching using:

  • Human hashtags + ML: 20(cats) / 20(total result) -> [100% correct]
  • Human hashtags : 12(cats) / 20(total result) -> [60% correct]

Installation

npm i ml-image-searcher

Usage

note: there are some limitation of loading instagram data, but it still usefull in most cases :)

Search for cats photos using human hashtags + machine learning prediction

const IG = require('ml-image-searcher');

IG.getImages('cat').then((ret) => console.log(ret.filteredData))

Output (format: htmlAll) response:

  • Left: Human hashtags + ML
  • Right: Human hashtags only

Output (format: filteredData) response:
