Instagram

The @uppy/instagram plugin lets users import files from their Instagram account.

A Companion instance is required for the @uppy/instagram plugin to work. Companion handles authentication with Instagram, downloads the pictures and videos, and uploads them to the destination. This saves the user bandwidth, especially helpful if they are on a mobile connection.

const Instagram = require('@uppy/instagram')

uppy.use(Instagram, {
  // Options
})

Installation

If you are using the uppy package, you do not need to install this plugin manually.

This plugin is published as the @uppy/instagram package.

Install from NPM:

npm install @uppy/instagram

In the CDN package, it is available on the Uppy global object:

const Instagram = Uppy.Instagram

CSS

Dashboard plugin is recommended as a container to all Provider plugins, including Instagram. If you are using Dashboard, it comes with all the nessesary styles for Dropbox as well.

⚠️ If you are feeling adventurous, and want to use Instagram plugin separately, without Dashboard, make sure to include @uppy/provider-views/dist/style.css (or style.min.css) CSS file. This is experimental, not officialy supported and not recommended.

Options

The @uppy/instagram plugin has the following configurable options:

uppy.use(Instagram, {
  target: Dashboard,
  serverUrl: 'https://companion.uppy.io/',
})

id: 'Instagram'

A unique identifier for this plugin. It defaults to 'Instagram'.

title: 'Instagram'

Configures the title / name shown in the UI, for instance, on Dashboard tabs. It defaults to 'Instagram'.

target: null

DOM element, CSS selector, or plugin to mount the Instagram provider into. This should normally be the Dashboard.

serverUrl: null

serverHeaders: {}

Custom headers that should be sent along to Companion on every request.

serverPattern: serverUrl

The valid and authorised URL(s) from which OAuth responses should be accepted.

This value can be a String, a Regex pattern, or an Array of both.

This is useful when you have your Companion running on multiple hosts. Otherwise, the default value should be good enough.

Localize text that is shown to the user.

The default English strings are:

strings: {
  // TODO
}
