usages

Some methods require authentication:

from instagram_scraper.instagram import InstagramScraper

instagram = InstagramScraper()

# authentication supported
instagram.with_credentials('your account', 'your password')
res = instagram.login()

followers = instagram.get_followers('206034174', 20, 20, True)
print(followers[0])

If you use authentication the program will cache the user session by default so that you don't need to gain session everytime.
But if you want to disable the user session cache, just assign True to login() method:

from instagram_scraper.instagram import InstagramScraper

instagram = InstagramScraper()

instagram.with_credentials('your account', 'your password')
res = instagram.login(True)

Besides, account verification is also supported by default. When a account verification is needed, you will receive a active code by email or something and you should then input the code in terminal to finish verification.

Many of the methods do not require authentication:

from instagram_scraper.instagram import InstagramScraper

instagram = InstagramScraper()

account = instagram.get_account('shaq')
account_id = account.get_id()
print(account._id)

Using proxy for requests:

from instagram_scraper.instagram import InstagramScraper

proxies = {
    'http': 'http://127.0.0.1:1087',
    'https': 'http://127.0.0.1:1087',
}

instagram = InstagramScraper()
instagram.set_proxies(proxies)

account = instagram.get_account('shaq')
account_id = account.get_id()
print(account._id)
