Bibliogram - View Instagram with Privacy

Like Invidious (YouTube) and Nitter (Twitter) this provides a front end to view Instagram without the tracking. I think providing these services is important and would like to see these added to Cloudron.

I'd like this too. Although I'd note that none of the public instances I've visited recently actually work. Instagram is obviously blocking them. I'd guess a lower-use self-hosted instance could fair better, but I imagine it could also fall foul to similar blocks.
@jdaviescoates I found one that was working.
Lost it now but will see if I can find it again.
But for the reasons you state, I would prefer to self-host.
I think Instagram only cares about the big feeds, they're not interested or bothered about the little fish.
@jdaviescoates I did have https://bibliogram.snopyta.org working to provide a user's feed by RSS
But I can't get it working now
Maybe they are blocking more aggressively
I guess anything listed as a source with multiple users is going to hit some limits and attract attention.
But there is still a chance it may work for a tiny self-hosted instance.
I will try it on my docker VPS and see if it builds, although their source page doesn't exhibit much confidence !

@jdaviescoates so I tried the docker image for bibliogram (
docker runnot the
It actually starts and runs fine.
But there is an immediate block from instagram
Kinda surprises me but maybe Insta has some way of detecting even a fresh Bibligram instance
Or they're still recovering from the FB outage and blocked a lot of things
Anyway, while it would be nice to have a working Bibliogram, I don't have time to debug or look for workarounds just now.
EDIT : there are 2 other install routes. I don't think they will include anything which acts to get around a block, but conceptually they might. Haven't tried them, just noting it in case someone wants to try one of the other routes.

They may be checking user-agent, so if that's a setting, set it for a common browser.

@timconsidine That's interesting I used it (the one you linked) before I posted it and just checked again with profile's I didn't check last night and it all works smoothly on my end.
Either way I do think it would work in small instances as you've mentioned.
@robi good tip thank you
