In CYBERnyama04, we speak to Tim Großmann about the InstaPy project. Should you like to use InstaPy to automate your Instagram activities, to increase your followers, or just to learn about Python, embedded devices and the cloud, then here are some links to get you started.
Start by checking out InstaPy on Github and going through the readme.
There are a number of options and to get started using InstaPy. You can run InstaPy a Linux, Windows or OSX PC with Python Installed. This is a good way to start learning InstaPy and Python.
The benefit of bots is that they work while we play. Bots are better suited to environments where they can be reliably running and online, like the cloud or to constantly connected devices. InstaPy is better suited to doing its work in the cloud or on an embedded device. The easiest way to use InstaPy in the cloud, is as suggested with Digital Ocean “droplet” this should cost you 10 dollars a month, there is a 10 dollar coupon to try Digital Ocean for a month contained in the tutorial.
If you have a Raspberry Pi lying around you can also install it on that. A dedicated bot runs well from ann internet connected Raspberry Pi.
If you want to start using InstaPy straight away without having to install and learn about Python, then you can use the third party graphical user interface (GUI) for Windows and through a point-and-click interface, instruct InstaPy to perform tasks, without having to install Python or do any coding.
Have fun using InstaPy. If you have any interesting experiences using it, have built anything cool with it, or just have an opinion of it, please let us know.
