Why is the Instagram API so limited for makers? 😡

I had a neat idea for a project which would involve posting to Instagram feeds so I looked into the API and there is basically nothing you can do to create posts programmatically.

I know it's their platform but I was still surprised at how locked-down it is.

Why don't they let makers interact with it like Twitter does?!

    They are not even accepting new partners that can have that access. If possible, you can also automate mobile version of instagram.com with a browser automation library like puppeteer. That's what I had done.

    However, that may not work well with a lot of Instagram accounts.
