Instagram bot written in Python 3 that cycles through specified hashtags and automatically likes pictures with those hashtags to get more followers. The bot also follows people and unfollows them after specified period of time. Unfollowed people are saved in DB to prevent following them again. To find new people to follow it uses list of followers of people you have followed.
During installation process it saves people followed by you as "followed long time ago" and unfollows them at the first start.
The bot doesn't use Instagram API so all credentials you need are your login and password.
docker network create \ --subnet=172.21.0.0/24 \ instabot docker run \ --name=instabot-mysql \ --net=instabot \ --ip=172.21.0.2 \ --env="MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=ZEbMKcFQppk8m8PR3b" \ --env="MYSQL_DATABASE=instabot" \ --env="MYSQL_USER=instabot" \ --env="MYSQL_PASSWORD=KbWj0Eua78YGLNLf3K" \ --volume=`pwd`/lib:/var/lib/mysql \ --detach \ mysql:5.7 docker build --tag=instabot .
Create MySQL DB:
CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS instagram CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci; CREATE USER instabot@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'GT8H!b]5,9}A7'; GRANT ALL ON instagram.* TO instabot@localhost;
configuration.yml file containing your credentials, e.g.:
credentials: username: "your_username" password: "eKeFB2;AW6fS}z" db: host: "172.21.0.2" name: "instabot" user: "instabot" password: "KbWj0Eua78YGLNLf3K" following_hours: 120 hashtags: - I - люблю - Python instagram: limit_sleep_time_coefficient: 1.3 limit_sleep_time_min: 30 success_sleep_time_coefficient: 0.5 success_sleep_time_max: 6 success_sleep_time_min: 4 logging: version: 1 formatters: simple: class: logging.Formatter format: "%(asctime)s - %(levelname)s - %(name)s - %(message)s" handlers: console: class: logging.StreamHandler level: DEBUG formatter: simple loggers: instabot: level: DEBUG root: level: DEBUG handlers: - console users_to_follow_cache_size: 300
following_hours— how long users will stay followed.
hashtags— list of hashtags to get photos to like. Optional. By default bot won't like anything.
logging— logging setup as described in this howto.
users_to_follow_cache_size— how much users should be fetched for following. The cache is being filled in once a minute. Optional. By default bot won't follow anybody.
Now you may run the bot:
docker run \ --name=instabot \ --net=instabot \ --ip=172.21.0.10 \ --volume=`pwd`/configuration:/configuration \ --detach \ instabot
