A responsive, highly-customizable Instagram Photo Gallery plugin that adds Instagram photos from any user (or any tag you provide) to your website without the need of the Instagram access token.

Vanilla JavaScript Version is available here.

This plugin is Deprecated since the latest Instagram changes. Move to an official API based plugin please.

How to use it:

1. Create a container element to display the Instagram photos.

<div id="instagram-feed-demo" class="instagram_feed"></div>

2. Download and include the jQuery instagramFeed script after loading jQuery library.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.instagramFeed.js"></script>

3. Call the function on the container element and specify the username whose photos you want to fetch.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo"
  });
});

4. Decide wherther to display the profile, biography, IGTV.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo",
    'display_profile': true,
    'display_biography': true,
    'display_igtv': false
  });
});

5. Set the maximum number of photos to display.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo",
    'items': 8
  });
});

6. Set the maximum number of photos per row.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo",
    'items_per_row': 4
  });
});

7. Set the space between photos.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo",
    'margin': 0.5
  });
});

8. If you want to override the default CSS styles.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo",
    'styling': false
  });
});
.instagram_profile {
  /* CSS styles here */
}

.instagram_profile_image {
  /* CSS styles here */
}

.instagram_username {
  /* CSS styles here */
}

.instagram_biography {
  /* CSS styles here */
}

.instagram_gallery {
  /* CSS styles here */
}

9. Decide whether to display Instagram photos as a gallery.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'container': "#instagram-feed-demo",
    'display_gallery': true
  });
});

10. To customize the template for the Instagram gallery, following these steps:

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'username': 'instagram',
    'callback': function(data){
      $('#jsonHere').html(JSON.stringify(data, null, 2));
    }
  });
});

11. The plugin also supports fetching Instagram photos by tags:

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'tag': 'paradise'
  });
});

12. Determine the image size: Accepted values [150, 240, 320, 480, 640].

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'image_size': 640
  });
});

13. Enable image lazy load by add the loading="lazy" attribute. Default: false.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'lazy_load': true
  });
});

14. Customize the Instagram response cache expiry time. Default: 360.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'cache_time': 360
  });
});

15. Determine the Instagram location '{id}/{slug}' from where to retrieve the feed. Required if username, tag and user_id are not defined. Default: null.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'location': '{id}/{slug}'
  });
});

16. Determine the number of tries to fetch Instagram data until throwing. Useful to avoid arbitrary CORS issues. Default: 8.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'max_tries': 8
  });
});

17. Specify the URL where to fetch the data. Useful if instagram changes CORS policy. Default: 'https://www.instagram.com/'.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    'host': 'https://images' + ~~(Math.random() * 3333) + '-focus-opensocial.googleusercontent.com/gadgets/proxy?container=none&url=https://www.instagram.com/'
  });
});

18. Trigger a function when an error ocurs.

$(window).on('load', function(){
  $.instagramFeed({
    on_error: function(error_description, error_code){
      // ...
    }
  });
});
