Another API-less Instagram pictures and videos downloader.

Project description

InstaLooter is a downloader that can download any picture or video associated from an Instagram profile. It can be seen as a re-implementation of the now deprecated InstaRaider developed by @akurtovic.

This implementation only requires BeautifulSoup for html parsing, six for version compatibility, and progressbar2 for the output.
