Import personal data from various APIs into InfluxDB


Open and set your API credentials and InfluxDB server configuration at the top of the file


Check your Python version and make sure version 3.7 or newer is installed on your system:

$ python3 --version

Install required python3 modules:

$ pip3 install pytz influxdb requests requests-cache instaloader todoist-python publicsuffix2 logging colorlog

Run each Python script from the terminal and it will insert the most recent data into InfluxDB.


  • Each script is designed to write to its own InfluxDB database. Using the same database name between scripts can lead to data being unexpectedly overwritten or deleted.
  • RescueTime provides data each hour, so scheduling the script as an hourly cron job is recommended.
  • Steam provides the recent playtime over 2 weeks, so the first set of data inserted will contain 2 weeks of time. New data going forward will be more accurate as the script will calculate the time since the last run.
  • Google Play doesn't provide total play time, only achievements and last played timestamps
  • Instagram can take a very long time to download, so by default it will only fetch the 10 most recent posts. Set MAX_POSTS to 0 to download everything.
  • Access to the Todoist API requires a premium subscription

Grafana Dashboards

The grafana folder contains json files for various example dashboards. Most dashboards require the grafana-piechart-panel plugin, and the Foursquaure panel also requires the panodata grafana-map-panel plugin:

$ grafana-cli plugins install grafana-piechart-panel
$ grafana-cli --pluginUrl grafana-cli --pluginUrl plugins install grafana-map-panel plugins install grafana-map-panel
