Daily Gradient Bot for Instagram

This bot does just that: it generates a gradient image and pushes it to Instagram (@gradientdaily).

Look, ma, it's a gradient!

This image is resized, originally they are 1080x1080.


Since we're going to be using Pillow and other hardcore stuff, here's a list of dependencies:

sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev python-dev libssl-dev libtiff5-dev
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms2-dev libwebp-dev tcl8.6-dev tk8.6-dev python-tk

Then I usually do the following:

git clone $PROJDIR
virtualenv .env
.env/bin/pip install -r requirements.txt

Of course you may have a better idea or try some kinky stuff. I don't judge.

Then you should be able to run:

.env/bin/gradient-daily --login XXXX --passwd YYYY --writepath /tmp 

That's it.

PS: This code is not really RAM-efficient, so if you're running it on a 500Mb machine, time to create some swap.
