Instagram's API uses the OAuth 2.0 protocol, it's designed for simple, and quick implementation. However, for non-developer, using and learning third party API can be a tedious process. This is when we need SpectragramJS jQuery Instagram plugin. Its function is pretty basic at the moment, you can retrieve recent, popular and recently tagged media from Instagram API.

To start using this, you need to register an application at Instagram Developers, get a client_id and receive an access_token.


  • Get recent media, popular media and recently tagged media easily.
  • Display the results on list items or any other HTML tag you define
  • Define picture size
  • Use your own Instagram application ClientID and AccessToken
