Starting bot

If you have provided your username and password combination in default.cfg file then start with python main.py otherwise use python main.py -u username -p password.

You can create a new configuration file by copying default.cfg, and then you can pass it on startup like that: python main.py -u username -p password -c filename - where filename is the name of the new configuration file.

Requirements

  • python 3+
  • python -m pip install requests
  • python -m pip install peewee

PythonAnywhere setup (bot won't work if server location is far away from your real location)

Set up a PythonAnywhere account and start a bash console. Clone the repository and then move to the directory: $ git clone https://github.com/mpawlak2/instalike-instagram-bot.git $ cd instalike-instagram-bot.git Install requirements like this: $ pip3 install -U requests --user $ pip3 install -U peewee --user The installation is now complete. Now, you can edit default.cfg file or run the bot using the following command: $ python3 main.py -u username -p password
