Insta visualization on Flask

A web-app to compare different insta handles for followings_count or posts_count (Web-app page 1)

Flask is a popular choice for python developers. Lets learn to host locally, in the blog.

Later, we can also explore how to easily host it on Heroku for everyone in the world to access the web-app.

Insta scraping results (Web-app page 2)

Find here the github repo.

In the templates folder, first.html is the template for the first web-app page accepting the user inputs. The inputs are supposed to be the insta handles.


The display1.html is the /compare page which displays the results from Instaloader , a web scraping tool for instagram. Here is the official page of Instaloader.

In next blog, we will learn to host the web-app on Heroku.
