Using Instagram with Filestack

How can you use Instagram with Filestack?

This is all you need to get started. A simple pick.

Sample Code
filepicker.pick( { mimetypes: ['*/*'], container: 'modal', services:['INSTAGRAM'], }, function(Blob){ console.log(replaceHtmlChars(JSON.stringify(Blob))); }, function(FPError){ // console.log(FPError.toString()); - print errors to console } );

Setting up a Custom Instagram oauth application

By default, you do not need to configure anything to start uploading files from Instagram, Filestack is ready to go out of the box. When a user logs into their Instagram account from your site, the Filestack company application will show up. You can configure it so that your application shows up instead in order to make a more seamless experience for your customers. So let's get started.
