This is not an intagram bot. It's a tiny script(like under 20 lines) for installing missing npm dependencie which works well with nodemon, similar to this webpack plugin but for backend use. You can imagine it like this.
npm i instabot
It is advised to use together with nodemon
// at the top of your main file// or
It is very lightweight and as fast as doing npm install yourself-it just runs the same command from node.js itself.
Does not work in
NODE_ENV=production. It just doesn't do anything by design.
It is probably a good idea to run npm-check to make sure you're not having some unused npm dependencies once in a while, as it it is easy to leave some unused dependencies behind after rapid prototyping session.
