InstaLooter is a program that can download any picture or video associated from an Instagram profile, without any API access. It can be seen as a re-implementation of the now deprecated InstaRaider <https://github.com/akurtovic/InstaRaider>_ developed by @akurtovic <https://github.com/akurtovic>_.

v1.0.0 was completely rewrote from scratch, and as such, will probably break compatibility with your homemade scripts. Meanwhile, great care was taken to keep the CLI as consistent as possible with the previous versions, so it'll hopefully feel like home.

Installation

InstaLooter is available on PyPI to install with pip. If you are not familiar with the package management of the Python ecosystem, please see the Installation page <http://instalooter.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install.html>_ of the documentation <http://instalooter.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html>_. Yet, you will probably end up using the following command::

pip install --user instalooter --pre

Usage

instalooter comes with its CLI::

$ instalooter user <username> [<directory>] [options]
$ instalooter hashtag <hashtag> [<directory>] [options]
$ instalooter post <post_token> [<directory>] [options]
$ instalooter batch [<batch_file>]

See instalooter --usage for all possible uses, or instalooter --help for a complete usage guide.

Logging in and out

There are two ways to login on Instagram through instalooter:

  • use the login subcommand (instalooter login) to interactively login using your username and password.
  • give a --username (and, if you want, a --password) argument to any of the download commands.

In both cases, a session cookie will be created in a cache-specific folder. To delete it and close your session on the server, use the logout subcommand.

Examples

Download all pictures from the instagram profile in the current directory::

$ instalooter user instagram

Download the latest 20 pictures or videos tagged with python to /tmp::

$ instalooter hashtag python /tmp -n 20 --get-videos -c MYLOGIN

Download a single post from an url in the ~/Pictures directory::

$ instalooter post "https://www.instagram.com/p/BFB6znLg5s1/" ~/Pictures

Use a configuration file to download from several account using custom parameters (see Batch mode <http://instalooter.readthedocs.io/en/latest/batch.html>_)::

$ instalooter batch /path/to/a/config/file.ini

See more on the Usage page <http://instalooter.readthedocs.io/en/latest/usage.html>_ of the online documentation <http://instalooter.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html>_.
