Instagram Integration

The Pathfix Instagram plugin enables integration from your Bubble app to your user's Instagram account. The plugin will render the Connect button (UI) and calls the relevant APIs without you spending time on the API setup. No configurations required to get the plugin working

This documentation will show setup guide and a few example use cases.

Instagram Graph API Usage

The Instagram Graph API is for users that want to access Instagram Professional accounts. This plugin is not meant for Instagram personal accounts. Refer to the following Facebook link for more information on usage: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram-api/overview/
