I spent a little time this weekend reminding myself of what writing code is like (before I start work again on Tuesday, after 4 months travelling). After my recent post on leaving Meta's social networks I decided to create a script to convert the GDPR-provided archive of all my activity on Instagram into this blog.

You can find it at from-instagramI'll figure out a good place to leave a permanent link soon!1.

A screenshot of the new archival page on this blog; tiled photos from my instagram feed.

If this incredibly specific challenge is something you also face, you can find the (slap-dash) code I wrote in the repo that contains this blog.


  1. I switched to treating Instagram photos as a part of my photos stream, but left the from-instagram tags on there, in case you want to find those specifically. ↩︎
