ramsey/laravel-oauth2-instagram is a Laravel 5 service provider for league/oauth2-instagram.

This project adheres to a Contributor Code of Conduct. By participating in this project and its community, you are expected to uphold this code.


The preferred method of installation is via Composer. Run the following command to install the package and add it as a requirement to your project's composer.json:

composer require ramsey/laravel-oauth2-instagram

After requiring the package with Composer, you'll need to add the following to the providers array in config/app.php:


Then, add the following to the aliases array in the same file:

'Instagram' => Ramsey\Laravel\OAuth2\Instagram\Facades\Instagram::class

Now, run the following to properly set up the package with your Laravel application:

php artisan vendor:publish

Finally, register your application with Instagram and add your client ID, client secret, and redirect URI to config/instagram.php.


Create an authorization URL and redirect users to it in order to request access to their Instagram account:

$authUrl = Instagram::authorize([], function ($url, $provider) use ($request) {
    $request->session()->put('instagramState', $provider->getState());
    return $url;

return redirect()->away($authUrl);

In the route for the redirect URI, check the state and authorization code, and use the code to get an access token. Store the token to the session or to the user's profile in your data store.

if (!$request->has('state') || $request->state !== $request->session()->get('instagramState')) {
    abort(400, 'Invalid state');

if (!$request->has('code')) {
    abort(400, 'Authorization code not available');

$token = Instagram::getAccessToken('authorization_code', [
    'code' => $request->code,

$request->session()->put('instagramToken', $token);

Use the access token to make authenticated requests to Instagram.

$instagramToken = $request->session()->get('instagramToken');

$instagramUser = Instagram::getResourceOwner($instagramToken);
$name = $instagramUser->getName();
$bio = $instagramUser->getDescription();

$feedRequest = Instagram::getAuthenticatedRequest(

$client = new \GuzzleHttp\Client();
$feedResponse = $client->send($feedRequest);
$instagramFeed = json_decode($feedResponse->getBody()->getContents());
