Flow Details

  1. You need to create a sensor in the configuration.yaml file or add a link to the file where the Instagram sensor is recorded. In my case, I added the following lines to the configuration.yaml:

packages: !include_dir_merge_named includes/packages

Place the instagram.yaml file in the packages folder. In the instagram.yaml file, in the resource_template: template, enter your channel name (YOURS_NAME). Run the instagram sensor (scan_interval) no more than once every 2 hours!

  1. Create your automation. I added my automation to the automations.yaml file. In this file, set your AWTRIX MQTT prefix in topic: instead of awtrix_565c3c.

  2. Do not forget to download the icons mentioned in the project: instagram.
