2020-05-21 : 6.0 is released. Please upgrade from ^5.0 for cookies session stability.

Version ^6.3: Checkpoint challenge bypass

Some people may have trouble to login with this library. It happens for "old" Instagram accounts or if you're using it on some shared hosting (not all, I don't know why...).

You can now automatically bypass the checkpoint challenge. (email verification with code). You can find an example here.

Tips: you should create a dummy instagram account using a dummy e-mailbox to use this feature.

How it works?

  1. The lib will try to login
  2. Got 400 error "checkpoint_required"
  3. Trigger email verification
  4. Connect to your email inbox using IMAP credentials
  5. Wait for Instagram verification email
  6. Parse verification code from email
  7. Make a request to instagram with this code to complete verification
  8. Verification is done, then save session automatically*

Saving session with cache driver is very important here. The Instagram session is valid for... *1 YEAR**. So in theory, using a cache driver and one account will trigger only one real login to Instagram then reusing session for a long time.

Thanks to @ibnux and @eldark for help 🎉

Version ^6.0: Login

In version ^6.0, login is now mandatory, it will save cookies (session) to simulate "real" requests to Instagram.

They improve their bot detection and without real session data in the headers requests, your IP could be easily soft-ban by Instagram.

Then, you can't fetch a lot of data without login.

Tips: you just have to create or use a dummy account to use easily this package.

Usage

New in 6.0 Cache : This library implements PSR-6 for greatest interoperability.

$cachePool = new FilesystemAdapter('Instagram', 0, DIR . '/../cache');

$api = new Api($cachePool); $api->login('username', 'password'); // mandatory $profile = $api->getProfile('robertdowneyjr');

echo $profile->getUserName(); // robertdowneyjr

echo $profile->getFullName(); // Robert Downey Jr. Official

Basic usage :

login('username', 'password');

$profile = $api->getProfile('robertdowneyjr');

print_r($profile);

Paginate

If you want to use paginate on medias, just call

getMoreMedias
method.
login($credentials->getLogin(), $credentials->getPassword());

$profile = $api->getProfile('twhiddleston');

print_r($profile->getMedias()); // 12 first medias

do { $profile = $api->getMoreMedias($profile); print_r($profile->getMedias()); // 12 more medias

// avoid 429 Rate limit from Instagram
sleep(1);

} while ($profile->hasMoreMedias());

Stories

$cachePool = new FilesystemAdapter('Instagram', 0, DIR . '/../cache');

$api = new Api($cachePool); $api->login('username', 'password'); // mandatory

$profile = $api->getProfile('starwars'); // we need instagram username sleep(1); $feedStories = $api->getStories($profile->getId());

$stories = $feedStories->getStories();

print_r($stories);
