Import instagram data into a static site (Jekyll, Hugo, Hana, Metalsmith, etc)

# This script will import your instagram photos to your static site. It should work for most, assuming you customize the POST_TEMPLATE to match what your site uses.
# Things to note:
# * multi-photo posts will be imported as standalone photos with no caption (that's how Instagram exports them)
# * hashtags get removed from posts, unless you set REMOVE_HASH_TAGS to False.
# * multiline instagram posts are not handled gracefully if you're using the default POST_TEMPLATE (instagram image caption doesn't work with new lines)
