Simplest Instagram Api library in Javascript

Call any Instagram Api method in just 10 lines of code

var Nodegram = require('nodegram');
var token = 'ACCESS_TOKEN';
var gram = new Nodegram({accessToken: token});
var mediaOptions = {
  '{user-id}': 10499416,
  maxId: 12345,
  count: 30
};
var likeOptions = {
  '{media-id}': 1234
};
 
gram.get('/users/{user-id}/media/recent', mediaOptions).then(onSuccess).catch(onError);
gram.post('/media/{media-id}/likes', likeOptions).then(onSuccess).catch(onError);
gram.del('/media/{media-id}/likes', likeOptions).then(onSuccess).catch(onError);
 
function onSuccess(res, pag) {
  console.log('onSuccess', res, pag);
}
 
function onError(err) {
  console.log('onError', err);
}
 

Authentication

1- Retrieve auth code

var options = {
  clientId: 'CLIENT_ID',
  clientSecret: 'CLIENT_SECRET',
  redirectUri: 'REDIRECT_URI'
};
 
var gram = new Nodegram(options);
var url = gram.getAuthUrl();
 

2- Exchange code for access_token

var code = 'CODE';
 
gram.getAccessToken(code).then(function(res) {
  var token = res.access_token;
 
  console.log(res.user);
});
 

Now, you are authenticated ^^

var gram = new Nodegram({accessToken: token});
 
gram.get('/users/self/media/recent').then(onSuccess).catch(onError);

Motivation

The problem I found while trying to use a Node Instagram library was that you have to learn:

  • The Instagram Api methods
  • The Javascript library methods

So, in order to just learn the first point I built this simple Node.js Instagram library to comunicate with Instagram using the exactly syntax that you already now...

Install

npm i nodegram
