Script now saves user session and and have CLI session.
I also integrated it with instabot api.
90% of it are junk code I will fix it later.

This script scrapes images from users and then repost them under your Instagram accounts with your own tags.

Demo:
https://www.instagram.com/siliconeheaven/

Requirements

  • Python 3.6+
  • Min 10-20 profiles inside instaprofiles.txt

The script does not work with new accounts. If you know how to fix, send me a message.

To install script with Docker:

git clone https://github.com/reliefs/Instagram-scraper-with-autopost.git

cd Instagram-scraper-with-autopost

Create a file called secret.txt inside that folder with the following info:
yourusername:yourpassword
Save it

change yourusername to your instagram username in file example.py line 31: InstaUsername = "yourusername"

Docker build .

Docker run [imageid]

To install script on Windows:

Install Cmake

download link : https://github.com/Kitware/CMake/releases/download/v3.14.1/cmake-3.14.1.zip

Install Dblib

Download dlip ‘.wheel’ file as ur system requirnment (use link bellow)
download link : https://pypi.python.org/simple/dlib/

Open cmd navigate to dlib wheel file path and hit command
pip install dlib_file_name.wheel

Then run

git clone https://github.com/instagrambot/Instagram-scraper-with-autopost --recursive
cd Instagram-scraper-with-autopost
pip install -r requirements.txt
change yourusername to your instagram username in file example.py line 31: InstaUsername = "yourusername"
change instaprofiles.txt to the instagram profiles you wanna scrape
Run: python example.py -u yourusername

And press Enter.

To install script on Linux:

Ubuntu:
apt-get install python-dev python3-dev
sudo apt install g++
sudo apt install cmake
sudo apt install python3-pip

Arch Linux:
sudo pacman -S python3-dev
sudo pacman -S cmake
sudo pacman -S python3-pip

First, make sure you have dlib already installed with Python bindings:

Then do

git clone https://github.com/reliefs/Instagram-scraper-with-autopost.git

cd Instagram-scraper-with-autopost

sudo pip install -r requirements.txt

change yourusername to your instagram username in file example.py line 31: InstaUsername = "yourusername"

change instaprofiles.txt to the instagram profiles you wanna scrape

Run: python3 example.py

Troubleshoot

If you are getting Illegal Instruction with face_recognition follow this guide:
https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition/issues/11#issuecomment-475482716

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'face_recognition_model_v1'

Solution: The version of dlib you have installed is too old. You need version 19.7 or newer. Upgrade dlib.
