It was nice to have Instagram on my phone, because that way I knew exactly when I was wasting my time. Now that is on my desktop, my life is ruined. But you released the source code, in that case, you're cool.

@nacho VERY BA IG APP

With upload support this could turn into a very useful Instagram management tool for Small / Medium businesses. It's so much easier managing your Instagram account from a desktop instead of a mobile device.

@gibsonrichard thanks for the feedback. I added upload support to the changelog

@terkelg @gibsonrichard I don't think Instagram has (& will) ever allowed uploads outside their mobile client. I would advise against using the reverse engineered private API.

@swarooph @terkelg @gibsonrichard good call. I've seen some horror stories of accounts being banned. Can only imagine they're cracking down even more after the API changes. Still really cool, nice work @terkelg

@swarooph @terkelg @gibsonrichard Some apps already accept uploads from desktop for a moment now. :)

@juliens_me Instagram will shut them down if they get popular :)

@swarooph Pray that Ramme will not get popular ;D

@juliens_me @swarooph @terkelg @gibsonrichard i know a few apps allowing desktop upload. Instagram might not catch it in time but its definitely not safe.

@terkelg ➡ App should connect to Instagram via https and not http.

Nice work, @terkelg. Where'd the name Ramme come from?

Given this was the driver to create this, it's awesome: "My main motivation was to learn Electron. I’m was very inspired by the work of @sindresorhus. You should check out his electron Twitter and Messenger clients. I really enjoy building stuff, and this is part of a project where I’ll try to build at least one project a week and at the same time do more open source work. I want to be more pragmatic, and ship more and Ramme is the outcome of the first week." - @terkelg
