Instagram doesn't have per-user RSS feeds as far as I can tell. Any chance of adding instagram support directly to newsblur?

I've been using this little API to make RSS feeds.  it isn't perfect, but seems to work reliably:

Aaand, strike that.  I had been using it for years before just this week Instagram broke everything. :(

Did websta stop working for everyone else,  or just me? oho, looks like IG changed their API recently https://www.instagram.com/developer/sandbox/ .

Yep, adding IG support to NewsBlur would be pretty sweet, seeing as how IG feed generators are kinda falling off the earth.

Instagram support would be awesome!  Since IG Facebooked the main feed I've missed posts from friends who aren't as active that IG hides or pushes so far down that I don't see them.  Being able to make sure I'm getting everything my friends post would be a nice feature to have in Newsblur.

I doubt this will happen now that they've closed off their API.

Hi, I just discovered this item, and I very much would like to see this support. I was previously using the RSS feeds from Iconisquare, and now those are gone, and need a replacement.  It seems this will be difficult, as the API is no longer public, but maybe there could be a way.

 instagram-atom.appspot.com is an option to get your feed, but I would love to see native support, too

Maybe this could be an example for NB devs to use to get there
