Obtaining an access token
You can use the provided get_access_token.py script to obtain an access token for yourself. It will prompt you for your app's Client ID, Client Secret, and Redirect URI, and walk you through instructions for getting your own access token for your app.
from instagram.client import InstagramAPI access_token = "..." api = InstagramAPI(access_token=access_token) popular_media = api.media_popular(count=20) for media in popular_media: print media.images['standard_resolution'].url
We also provide a one-file sample app using bottle (you'll have to 'pip install bottle' first). To try it out:
- Set your redirect URI to 'http://localhost:8515/oauth_callback' in your dev profile
- Open up sample_app.py, update it with your client_id and secret, and set redirect URI to 'http://localhost:8515/oauth_callback'
- Run the file; it will host a local server on port 8515.
- Try visiting http://localhost:8515 in your browser
