    Good evening!

    How Instagram bots like instagress and others are made?
    They seem to have a similar engine or something like that.
    Is it possible to create it with imacros ?
    Any info will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    That IS true, but I think he was asking about what language the bots are made with, if I`m not mistaken, seeing that he said they look like they were created using a similar engine :)

    I know they have a really big forum just for botmakers that you could search on. I think its called bot world forum or something

    You can try imacros but Imacros are usually for low structural/not so complex processes.

    I am mot completely sure but Instagram Automation can be achieved with anything ranging from Python to .NET

    EDIT:As for iMacros,you are better off investing some time in learning a REAL language,iMacros would be a pain in the ass in the long term

    They are made two ways:

    1) using the API. Fairly easy in any language that does JSON REST calls.
    2) Simulate a browser. Back-door method.
    CasperJS, PhantomJS can simulate a web browser and act as if a human is interacting by doing actual clicks and what have you.
    This does not require the API.

    Yeah but AFAIK there is some kind of limit on the number of actions(likes,follows,etc) per hour with the API

    If you want to simulate a real phone, man-in-the-middle yourself and listen to responses IG app gives :)

    Or go to github and search for Instagram reverse engineered API

    The best way in my opinion is to research the back-end method as you will not get detected using a bot (depends on your usage settings as well). Python with Selenium is a perfect combination.

    Some of those guys are using a mixture of Python (to do the actual bot work) and HTML/CSS (to make it look appealing)
