This connector captures data from Instagram into Flow collections.
This Instagram article talks about how to connect a Facebook page to your Instagram business account.
It is available for use in the Flow web application. For local development or open-source workflows,
ghcr.io/estuary/source-instagram:dev provides the latest version of the connector as a Docker image. You can also follow the link in your browser to see past image versions.
This connector is based on an open-source connector from a third party, with modifications for performance in the Flow system.
You can find their documentation here, but keep in mind that the two versions may be significantly different.
Supported data resources
The following data resources are supported through the Instagram APIs:
By default, each resource is mapped to a Flow collection through a separate binding.
- Meta for Developers account
