Downstragram

About

Downstagram is a simple command line tool to download and backup all your Instagram photos.

Install

npm install -g downstagram

First run / OAuth Setup

After installation, Downstagram creates a configuration file in your home directory:

~/.downstagramrc

The file has the following fields and structure:

{
    "auth": {
        "client_id": "xxx",
        "client_secret": "xxx",
        "access_token": "<will be set after oauth setup>"
    }
}

On the first run, Downstagram runs the OAuth setup. The browser will open up with Instagram's authorization page. Just accept the authorization request and copy paste the resulting access token into the terminal window.

After this step, Downstagram is ready to backup your photos. Just run the command with your username and it's done.

Usage

downstagram [-m] <username>

    -m | --metadata     (optional) Also download a json file with all photo's metadata
    -v | --version      show Downstagram's version
    -h | --help         show help info

Development

This project uses master branch for development. So if you want to hack on the code, it's suggested that start from a tag commit.
