Swiftagram is a client for Instagram written entirely in Swift.
How does it work?
Swiftagram relies on Instagram unofficial private APIs, used internally in the Android and iOS apps.
This is because Instagram's official APIs, both the Instagram Basic Display API and the Instagram Graph API, are either lacking support for even the most mundane of features or limited to a small audience (e.g. Professional, i.e. Creator and Influencer, accounts).
Do I need an API token?
Swiftagram requires no token or registration.
Unofficial APIs, though, are not authorized by Instagram for external use: use them at your own risk.
Where can I use this?
Swiftagram supports iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS and Linux.
Apps using encryption require specific disclosure before submission to the App Store.
Although Swiftagram cannot be considered App Store safe, we still think it's wise to separate everything requiring cryptography into their own target library, named SwiftagramCrypto.
KeychainStorage, the prefered way to store
Endpoints are SwiftagramCrypto only.
APIs can be as simple as 1 endpoint for use by 100s of users or as complex as the AWS APIs with 1000s of endpoints and 100s of thousands of users. Building them can mean spending a couple of hours using a low-code platform or months of work using a multitude of tools. Hosting them can be as simple as using one platform that does everything we need or as complex as setting up and managing ingress control, security, caching, failover, metrics, scaling.
When you set out to build your first API, it can very well be that you are either overwhelmed or forget essential points. The ecosystem for API tools is vast, and it’s vital to get the right tool for every phase of your project. In this article...
