Talking tech since 2003

A friend of mine recently shared this with me and I thought it was too good not to share with everyone else. An inspired developer with the username billcccheng created a nifty little app (or script, really) that you can run on your computer and use to browse your Instagram feed directly from the Terminal. The script, which is freely available on Github (along with the complete source code), is easy to install and works as expected.

Here’s how it looks when you run the script on your computer:

Without Color (Stealth Mode)

With Color (Less Stealthy)

Pretty nifty, right? Now you can look busy at work while actually just browsing Instagram. Of course, doing your work is important too, so don’t forget to eventually get around to it.

In terms of installation, it’s really simple, you’ll need to download the code from Github, save it, and then run the following command from the Terminal (within the folder containing the code):

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Then once it’s installed, run either of the commands below to initiate the script:

Without Color

With Color
python3 --color

Have any other cool little apps/scripts? Let me know in the comments or feel free to tweet at me.
