This tool interfaces with the API of Instagram to retrieve overviews of posts for a given set of usernames or hashtags. Unlike some of the other DMI tools, this tool is a stand-alone application you can download and run from your own PC or laptop.

The tool produces an overview of all matching posts as a CSV file and can optionally also download the relevant photo/video files as well JSON metada files. For further analysis (e.g. co-tag networks) you can upload the CSV file to 4CAT.

A worksheet with more background information and step-by-step guides is available.


The tool only scrapes posts. Stories, pinned stories or IGTV content are not included in the scrape.
