    Hey ,

    I have been lurking on BHW for quite a while specifically on the instagram page. Anyways, from where I come from follow liker is very expensive for me. Thus, i have decided to build my own bot and hopefully share it with you guys. I plan on programming it in Phython as i have learned the intro course on code academy !. Anyway if i were to code it what features would you guys look for.

    P.S If you guys have any advice I should beaware of please also let me know !

    Hopefully we all benefit from this venture of mine

    Cheers!

    Goodluck, get a feature to scrape posts + captions on a certain user(s).
    That'd be useful as I spend too much time trying to come up with creative captions to keep posting.

    Biggest thing we could get is a bot that stops following once it hits a limit

    Like after two to three failed follows it stops for an hour. Would reduce banhammer by so much

    +1 for this one. Ability to stop any process when consecutive errors occurs.
    Normal Features would be fine and if you get a image uploader it would be a more than awesome.

    Cheers

    unlike? what for? i'm out of the ig game, but liking is capped like following? otherwise it wouldn't make too much sense, unliking in mass and making a habit out of it could throw up red flags in itself, no every day user does that and if you want to unlike only a handful, you don't need a bot for that

    suggestions to OP:
    acc creator with phone verify integration
    edit profiles in mass, upload profile pic
    and all the usual stuff what the already existing bots do: follow/unfollow, like, comment, upload media
    multithreaded with proxy support

    but if you're just starting out, this might be too big of a project and also prepare to update your tool regularly, 2-3 times per week, sometimes not even small updates

    well, there are already a lot of IG bot floating on market, but if you can put something new on table then it would be great.
    Good Luck mate and Welcome to the forum

    but lack of time

    Hmmm, i've been noticing quite a few ppl do this, come and say they will make a bot, take suggestions then get ghost.
    Not saying you're going to do that, but if you FOLLOW through, that would be nice for once in a change.

    I don't plan on ghost'ing. I'm basically coming up with a list of basic features that's would be ideal for the bot to start working and then move on

    So far the plan for v1:
    V1:
    Be able to follow a user, given their username

    Unfollow given a user name
    Distinguish between private and public user
    Follow private user (record their user in a text file for future reference so that you can u follow the later. No other bot has this feature I think)
    Like a post!
    Scrape that like user from a certain post
    Scrape follower of a certain user!

    This is it so far for v1 I plan on having finished before next week! What do you guys think! ?

    That you are loosing your time. You don't even know how to spell "python" and you want to create a bot. Do you have any knowledge about API sniffing, http headers?

    Nope. As I said I have on basic knowledge of variables, string int method. That is all. But it does not seem hard!
