    Instagram Manager is a software that scrapes information about specific users that is available on Instagram. You load a list of usernames and the software will give you the details about each user. The information provided by the software currently includes username, user ID, total amount of followers, total amount of followings, total amount of uploaded media, biography and website URL. It also checks whether the user is verified or private.


    I started this project as a hobby, but a guy approached me to code him something specific, but at the end he backed up. So I decided to release the program and improve it based on your suggestions and feedback.

    Features
    Single-threaded
    Scrape data based on username
    Does not use the Instagram API (no limit in requests)


    How to use
    1. Open the software
    2. Click "Load Users" and load the users. The users must be in .txt file where each line contains 1 username. If the file does not meet the criteria, the program will not work and may crash.
    3. After you load the usernames, just wait for the program to do its work

    You should also include a feature that does scraping loads of usernames based on hashtag

    Well, that's a good feature, I had a scraper based on user's followers. HOWEVER, implementing this feature requires usage of API, which is not something I want to do with this program, because Instagram is very strict with API. But, I might make a separate program Instagram Scraper that does scraping separately and uses the API.

    I'm not sure how it's done, but if you could post the method by hand, I'll try to make a program for it.

    Working on it :)

    Have you updated to the last version? Let me know if the problem still exists.

    I'm not sure whether your app (which looks great btw) tells people what sort of engagement the scraped accounts have plus their average comments/likes on their posts. That'd be a very useful piece of information to have.

    Nope, my software does not scrape/tell you that. It only gives you information which you can see in the table.

    @JustChillin, Insane tool. Thank you building this and sharing.

    Does last active basically mean when they likes, commented or uploaded a photo?

    Last active means when they last uploaded a photo on their account.
