Laravel Instagram API tutorial in laravel

I am going to show you how to access Instagram Feed using instagram API. We can get our instagram feed without using any composer package, I simply use GuzzleHttp for getting instagram feed, We can also get location, likes, comments, images, name, id and etc.

GuzzleHttp provide use fire get request to given api, “” API like, It is very basic example without generate instagram token. Here you can access feed of any user by username.


Step 1: Create Route


Route::get('instagram_web', 'InstagramDataController@index');

Step 2: Create Controller

In this point, now we should create new controller call InstagramDataControllerin this path app/Http/Controllers/InstagramDataController.php. In this controller we will manage route method, i added one method in this controller as listed bellow:

1) index()

So, copy bellow code and put in your controller file.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Http\Requests;

class InstagramController extends Controller
     * Get the index name for the model.
     * @return string
    public function index(Request $request)
     $items = [];


  $client = new \GuzzleHttp\Client;
  $url = sprintf('', 
         $response = $client->get($url);
         $items = json_decode((string) $response->getBody(), true)['items'];


     return view('instagram',compact('items'));

Step 3: Create View

In this step, we have to create total one blade file as listed bellow:

1. instagram.blade.php

This both blade file will help to render layout of instagram data, so let’s create file view file and put bellow code.


<!DOCTYPE html>

  @foreach($items as $key => $item)
     <td>{{ ++$key }}</td>
     <td>{{ $item['id'] }}</td>
     <td>{{ $item['code'] }}</td>
     <td><img src="{{ $item['images']['standard_resolution']['url'] }}" style="width:100px;"></td>
     <td>{{ isset($item['location']['name']) ? $item['location']['name'] : '' }}</td>
